Weekend Roundup - O

This week's assignment: Starts with O, Favorite, and Over.

Starts with O: My favorite place to have lunch is OLE Red in Tishomingo, OK. 

Favorite: My favorite breakfast food is OATMEAL. This is blueberry OVERNIGHT OATMEAL. In the winter, Mom always made hot cereal for breakfast. She made OATMEAL with raisins and lots of fresh cream and sugar. Yum! Mom's was the best. I made the OWL spoon rest for my mom in the early 70s. She kept it on her stove until she passed away. Now I use it.

Over: This is Socks the mule. He likes to roll OVER in the dirt. Especially when he had a bath a couple of hours before. Bad Socks!

Just Because: OKLAHOMA University and University of Texas are football rivals. Every year in October the rivalry extends to everyone in both states, as they meet in Dallas for a game. Since I lived in Texas for over 30 years, my allegiance has always been with UT. Now that I live in OKLAHOMA, I feel I should root for the home team, but I can't seem to do it. This is a sign by the gate of a ranch south of Ada, OK. Guess they will be chanting Boomer Sooner while we chant Hook 'em Horns!

And Finally: A couple of times per year, several people hitch their mules to wagons and form a mule train. They travel for a few days, stopping at designated areas to camp. I wait for them to pass by and take pictures. This is the outrider dressed in his ORANGE vest to warn oncoming traffic.
