OU’s in the Final Four! The last time the Oklahoma University women made it to the final four, they went on to the championship game (2002) and lost to Connecticut, the best team of the decade. This year, it could turn out the same way, but they’ll have to get past Louisville first. (Sorry, but[…]
As I type this, Marline and I are honoring Earth Hour in Seminole, along with people in 4,000 other communities in 88 nations around the world.

Yesterday, I was privileged to cover the Class B girls’ State Basketball Championship for Oklahoma. The Varnum Lady Whippets won the game easily, 56-36, holding their opponents to only eight points in the second half.

Saturday, Marline and I got to spend time with my parents, which was a welcome break from all the hustle and bustle of our daily lives. We went over in the afternoon. Marline spent time talking with my Mom about recipes and other subjects, while my Dad and I talked about technology (he had the[…]
