For more photos of the fires in Seminole County, Oklahoma, the last few days, click here (these are from our whole paper, not only me).
Taking a break from the fire coverage, I used my camera for a less depressing subject. (Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) I have more on My Flickr. Come and see!
In case you haven’t been watching the national news, or CNN, or reading USA Today, there have been many thousands of acres burned in Seminole County, destroying at least 70 homes here. This isn’t counting the other 100 or so fires in Oklahoma, or the several I’ve heard of in Texas. I have several new[…]
Thanks to everyone for reading, even during the holidays… For those who haven’t had a chance to keep up, it’s all there, just read back a few entries to catch up. I know I’ve had only a few moments to check out my friends’ blogs during this busiest of all seasons. But I have had[…]
Wednesday, I worked, but managed to get the afternoon off. I printed out some photos for people who’d ordered them, and made a CD of photos for another lady. (Total of about $20 in my pocket!) Then Marline and I went to Wal-Mart for a couple of items, and then went to the City. That’s[…]
(Copyright © 2005 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) YES! I proposed! She said YES!
Well, as you may have guessed (or already read about on Marline’s blog), she arrived safe and sound at 4:05 p.m. Friday afternoon. Her luggage came out on the conveyor belt a little late, but we had time to get her Seminole, get her bags out of the car, and get organized for a few[…]
4 hours till Marline arrives!
16 hours till Marline arrives!
48 hours till Marline arrives!
71 hours till Marline arrives!
Wow. I’ve been busy! (I know, same old song and dance, right?) But a sure indicator of how busy I’ve been is that I haven’t posted a blog entry for something like four days. Amazing. I don’t know if I’ve ever gone four days before. Some new stats: My Flickr photostream has now been viewed[…]
I did finally get to see some Little River Conference basketball (the tournament started Monday, and lasts until Saturday), held at Seminole State College. I watched three games this evening. New Lima won easily, as expected (both boys and girls). In fact, I believe the New Lima teams are expected to sweep the tournament this[…]
Cassie, it’s supposed to be 13 degrees tonight, but then it’ll start getting warmer. As high as 59 on Thursday… So maybe it won’t be so bad when you get here. I on the other hand, hope it snows like the dickens. Whatever that means. But I’m praying for six to ten feet. I’ve never[…]
It was freaking 15 degrees today! I love it, but my whole body is still cold from being outside so long. And it’s supposed to get down to 6 tonight. (That’s SIX degrees, Fahrenheit.) It snowed a little today, just enough to cover parking lots and car windows, but not the grass in the yards/fields.[…]
Well, it’s time for my news update of weird and interesting stories that I found, from around the world. But first, a piece of family news: My brother announced this evening that he’s asked his girlfriend to marry him. What he said was, “I bought her a ring, and now she’s wearing it.” He seemed[…]
I got this from Kelly. 1. Grab the nearest book. 2. Open the book to page 123.
In case you missed it, I reviewed “Aeon Flux” on my other blog. Other than watching a movie Sunday evening, what have I done since my previous update? Let’s see… Friday night, I went to see the NBA’s OKC Hornets vs. the Philadelphia 76ers at the Ford Center in Oklahoma City. Sitting on the baseline[…]
Busy day at the office. I’m going to be covering the Hornets’ game tonight in Oklahoma City. Hopefully I’ll have some pictures on Flickr later. Wish me luck.
From Bill’s blog, I got my “Top Ten Merry Christmas ‘I am a giddy schoolkid’ Gifts under My Tree” list: 1. A bag of cash (great idea, Bill) 2. Lifetime supply of Dr. Pepper. 3. Full-blown hi-tech, state-of-the-art entertainment center (giant flat panel plasma TV, surround sound, woofers, and all the necessary accessories — wireless[…]
