Income Tax $5 – Midwest City, OK

This has got to be one of my favorite signs. It is on the back of a garage of a private residence. I’ve never gotten up the nerve to ask about the age or history of this sign.

Uptown Center – Midwest City, OK

Yet another Midwest City sign. Not a great piece of work, but since the nearby shopping center is being updated, I assume that it will be vanishing soon.

Celebrity Club, Midwest City, OK

On Air Depot Blvd in Midwest City, this sign has the wildest font I have ever seen. I asked how old the sign is and was told that it dates back to the 60’s or 70’s

Lockheed Shopping Center, Midwest City, OK

The neon on this one is busted all to pieces, but it one of the largest remaining boomerang arrows that I have seen. Midwest City is the home of Tinker AFB, explaining the name Lockheed for the shopping center. Note the revolving red light on the right-most support post. They are currently updating the center and I fear that this sign will be torn down and replaced. It is on SE 15th east of Air Depot Blvd.

UPDATED 11/02/08: I’ve added a closeup of the other side of the sign.

Out of town and catching up – Hik-ry Pit, Oklahoma City

I’m out of town on work travel and while I’m cooped up in the hotel room, I thought that I would catch up and post the pics I have in Flickr.

This one is on 10th street & just east of May in Oklahoma City. I believe the business is closed.

Quite a week

It’s been a heck of a week. Monday, Lovely Wife & I put up 8 quarts of apples, 6 casseroles, several jars of salsa and packed 15 lbs of hamburger she got on sale. We also froze 21 stuffed peppers (thanks sis!)

Wednesday was puppets again and Friday & Saturday is Stamp Camp for Lovely Wife. Saturday is my fixit day, toliet, house-trim.

Sunday is Canadian Thanksgiving with a friend of Eldest Son (it was actually the 13th, but this was when we could get together)

So it’s run run run, which is fairly typical around here.

A day in the kitchen

We spent the weekend with my mom for her birthday, plowing through a to-do list as a way of giving her a b-day present. Came home yesterday and today we are hard at work freezing up a half truckload of tomatoes, pepper, & zucchini that my Delightful Sister gave us from her garden. Today is a festival of making stuffed peppers for freezing, zucchini casserole for freezing, salsa for eating. Lots of cutting & cooking.
