A week ago, for my parent’s 40th wedding anniversary, Marline and I were going to take them on a day out, but the weather turned out badly (snow, rain, thunderstorms, all in the same day).
So we did it yesterday, April 4. We took them to the Oklahoma History Center, next to the capitol, and spent a few hours there ( see my pics from the OHC ). We went to an early but huge and tasty supper at the Cheesecake Factor at the Penn Square Mall. We finished the evening by browsing in Barnes & Nobles at my Dad’s request. Marline and I bought a few books, and my Mom got something too.
On the way home, at my Mom’s request, we stopped by Best Buy.
All in all, it was a good day. We had fun and fellowship, and didn’t spend too much money.
The only downside was that on the way home I hit a deer. I wasn’t the first person to hit this one. It had been lying dead on the highway for a while and had obviously been run over by every car in front of me. But it was still high enough to hit my undercarriage, and ripped an electric box out from under my car. The box dragged behind my car for a while, until we noticed the sound. My Dad was able to tie it up with a shoelace and we resumed our journey home.
