Loving Tulsa

Tell me something bad about Tulsa
So I won’t have to go back
Believing I belong there
Again.
– George Strait
Slept in another Walmart parking lot last night, in a massive 8 hour thunderstorm, luckily I listened to the advice of my ever so smart friend Alec and picked up a better blanket, made all the difference.
Had to wait an hour for fog to clear before I could drive, went off the highway along the oldest part of Route 66 and pulled off randomly in a small, small, small town to see about breakfast.
Found Josephine’s, a tiny diner in the tiny town and met these two ladies, extremely friendly, extremely curious, by a landslide the nicest people I have met so far. Every place so far brings the cheque with the meal, I love this, no need to call them back again and wait for the bill.
AND
They would like me and all my friends to watch for a new Children of the Corn movie coming to Netflix, which used the cafe as a set and one of the ladies 6 year old sons got to murder a guy!
I was only twenty four hours from Tulsa
Only one day away from your arms.
– Dusty Springfield
Got to Tulsa early in the day and stopped in at the highly recommended art gallery…
The building and the ground were staggeringly gorgeous but the art was not really anything special for the most part.
That was on my last trip to Tulsa
Just before the snow.
If you ever need a ride there,
Be sure to let me know.
– Neil Young
I notice old mansion after mansion after mansion while driving around, turns out there was once oil money here and almost the entire city was built in a 20 year period from 1905 to 1925, I headed downtown and nearly every single building downtown is gorgeous Art Deco, there is even a Tulsa Art Deco museum. Was not expecting that at all.

I want to ride
Like a Tulsa Queen
Calling out to you
As she calls to me.
– Emmylou Harris
Take me back to Tulsa
I’m too young to marry
– Merle Haggard
When I left Tulsa Jamie was an innocent young lady
God only knows why she gave herself to a guy like you.
– Waylon Jennings
Grabbed a hot dog for supper, they call them Coney Islands here, same as in Detroit, weird.
My nights have been lonely since I’ve been in Tulsa
And I really don’t know what I’m gonna do.
– The Byrds
Found this today, perfect…….
You’ll know I been through it
When I set my watch back to it
Living on Tulsa Time.
– Don Williams
I’m tired now and not sure where I am sleeping yet so I am off to find a welcoming Walmart.
And I owe it all to Tulsa, Oklahoma
This is just a reminder of the antique shop that I want to go back to and visit when it’s open
In Tulsa, Oklahoma.
– Rufus Wainwright
