A two-car accident injured one near Checotah. Oklahoma Highway Patrols said the accident happened at approximately 10 p.m. Wednesday on Interstate 40 eastbound on ramp from U.S Highway 69, about 2 miles southwest of Checotah in McIntosh County.
I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July like we did. I pulled Cash around on the tube at Wister Lake for a couple of hours, then we headed to Glenn and Cheryl Sissonâ€™s house. They had a redneck water slide set up that went down a hill in their field and ended in a big hole. Huge tarps went the whole length of the â€śslide,â€ť and even down in the hole so the kids landed in a pool of water. With the addition of a big sprinkler on a fence post and with some baby oil, fun times were sure to follow! The kids slid down that thing for hours.
