Kathie Jackson, a retiree who formed the Nativity Committee of Tulsa, requested that the scene be displayed at the state Capitol, but said Fallin offered to have it put up on the mansion lawn. The scene was assembled Thursday.

An ostrich and a camel for Christmas this year

December 12, 2014

My old boots have been worn out for some time, and I went to Tip-Top Western Store to get a new pair. I had a pair of ostrich boots that I bought there in 2007, and I wanted another pair of them because they're so comfortable and were long lasting.
Last Cast
The Double Branch Baptist Church will have its drive-through nativity scene beginning at 6 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. You don't want to miss Johnny Baker from Central National Bank riding a camel. Yes, folks. The scene actually has a live camel. I just hope Johnny doesn't wear his spurs! He may become camel food.
