You might say I had a couple of friends who were â€śThunderstruckâ€ť a few weeks ago. Charles â€śDonkâ€ť Perry and his wife, Sharon, jumped on â€śThe Blake Express Planeâ€ť and flew to Oklahoma City to see the Oklahoma City Thunder play the Houston Rockets at Chesapeake Energy Arena.
Now, this was the first time the Perrys had ever flown. The Blakes' plane is a small, twin-engine plane. â€śDonkâ€ť said that he never has seen so many ponds and oil wells. He was a little nervous in the plane, but Sharon enjoyed the flight.
