Ridiculous Gas Prices

I know gas prices vary from station to station, and from town to town, but THIS MUCH? Today, as Marline and I drove to Oklahoma City (see her picture here), we began noticing the difference. It’s still $2.799 per gallon in Seminole, but only $2.459 per gallon in OKC. That’s 34 cents difference, per gallon.[…]

Marline has a new car… (All photos Copyright © 2006 by Wil C. Fry. All rights reserved.) We’re pretty excited about the purchase, and can’t wait to put the car through it’s paces. It’s a 1991 Buick Park Avenue, Marline’s first-ever automobile. After the purchase, we bought several items to keep in the trunk, like[…]

Got a Car?

I think we’ve made our decision. Right now, Marline and my dad are in Wewoka, giving a final look at the car we’ve settled on. It hasn’t taken long, but like most car-buying occasions, it’s been rough ( see my commentary here ). As I said before, I finished with the football preview, and I’m[…]

Now that I’m finished with the Football Preview, Marline and I are car shopping. We’ll let you know what happens.

(Note: Cassie, go HERE for Shari and Bobby’s pictures.) This evening, at about 8 p.m., I finished the 2006 Football Preview for Seminole County, right on time. Let me break down for you what all this entails. It’s an annual 24-page special section that’s inserted into the newspaper the Sunday before the first football games[…]

(Note: Cassie, I can get on your site just fine, and I can type a comment. But the comment won’t publish. At all. I just don’t know.) I HAVE A NEW NIECE! My sister gave birth to Elisabeth Anne Morrow yesterday morning, in Abilene, Texas. I’ve seen a few pics on my brother-in-law’s Flickr account.[…]

I’m still working on the 2006 Football Preview for our county teams. I think I’ve done 99 percent of the legwork, though. I’ve taken all the team photos, and I have individual shots for nearly every player in the county. I’ve interviewed all six coaches, and attended at least two practices of every team (plus[…]

Remember, back on May 15 and May 16, a few weeks before Marline arrived here, I posted a list of possible issues that Marline and I would face as a married couple. One was a longer list , and the other was a more specific focus on racial issues . That was three months ago.[…]

I can’t believe it’s been four days since I’ve blogged! I think this is the first time I’ve gone that long since my friend Juanna invited me to see her blog in February of 2005. Since then, I’ve been on here almost every day. Anyway, I’ve been crazy-busy with sports lately. All the schools in[…]

Click here to read about the stupidity of air conditioning. Great convenience, but it’s actually adding to the problem. My dad told me about this years ago, but I think we’ve reached the point where there’s little that the average person can do about it. At over 100 degrees each day, it’s nearly impossible to[…]

Woo-Hoo

I’m gearing up for our 2006 County Football Preview, which will take up much of my free time in the next two weeks or so. Besides, I hope to be car-shopping with Marline before long, as well as riding with her to job interviews by the end of the month. I’m actually surprised that we[…]

My Boss Is Back And You’re Gonna Be In Trouble

Today, my boss returned from two weeks of vacation. Thank goodness. I’m not saying that I’m not competent to take her place, but I definitely don’t like it. We always survive when she’s gone, but my stress level goes up about 243 percent and I lose track of the rest of my life. Anyway, she’s[…]
