Surrey with the Fringe on Top

It would have been too frickin' easy to call the post 'Oklahoma', now wouldn't it? I try not be that obvious.

I leave this morning for...............wait for it..............Oklahoma!

What? You saw that coming???

It's work - no play. On a Friday. And part of a Saturday.

Work is only on Friday, but the last flight out to home is two hours earlier than the end of my meeting - and even then I have to drive 90 miles back to the airport. So getting home happening. I get to leave on the first flight out Saturday morning.

I'm 90% sure I'll just work in the hotel room Friday night, but hell, I can finally check off OK from the list of states I've never been to. Maybe I'll venture into the heart of the city and find me one of them jalapeno margaritas someone was tellin' me about. ....I can have a beer anywhere.

I'm not excited or un to go. It moves me that much closer to my Elite status. And when you travel, it's all about the miles. ....and maybe the margaritas. No salt. It makes me swell.

....and I'm already swell.

Song by: umm....some Broadway Cast, I guess

And I'm leaving Austin TX in an hour for Portland. We're passing in the night! (Well, not really night.....)

Blobby, given your well-known ability to attract mischief and mayhem, and given the fact that weirdness always seems to search you out, and given the additional fact that Oklahoma is in tornado alley, you should think really hard about sleeping in a cellar or basement tonight. Just saying...

I hear Oklahoma is OK.

I've never been to OK either...and I can't imagine that I will ever have a reason to go there. Let me know if I need to add it to my list of places that I can't miss!
