And on the 9th day, God looked down on his planed paradise and said, "I need someone to live where the red dirt is settled." So God made Okies. He said "I need someone who can handle the blistering summers and the freezing winters." So God made Okies. "I need someone who can wake up in the morning, drink black coffee, head out to the fields, cut the wheat, bale the hay, and stay in those fields till long after dark" so God made Okies. "I need people tough enough to stand the heat as they work day in and out on drilling rigs and pumping units." So God made Okies. "I need people to wear Orange & Black, Crimson & Cream and though those schools are rivals, all can rise together to support the Orange & Blue." So God made Okies. "I need people who believe in me and the power of goodness. People who aren't afraid to say 'Hello!' to one another and welcome in visitors to their land with open arms." So God made Okies. "I need people who are strong enough to stand thru the strongest storms and the most devastating heartbreaks" So God made Okies. And amidst the destruction, turn to me for comfort and come together as a state and rise above it all. So God, made Okies (author unknown)
Thoughts and prayers go out to all my Oklahoma friends and relatives.
