Friends make a trip to go see Thunder play in OKC

April 13, 2012

You might say I had a couple of friends who were “Thunderstruck” a few weeks ago. Charles “Donk” Perry and his wife, Sharon, jumped on “The Blake Express Plane” 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. “Donk” 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.
