My wife and I drove past the Murrah building and the rental truck at 5 minutes to 9am on the fatal day. My business "Pager Mart" was located then on West Main at Classen and we had just paid my phone bill at the corner of Broadway and 9th street (the time on the receipt from SW Bell was 8:52). She dropped me off at the shop and a customer was waiting on me. As we entered my shop the bomb went off. We ran outside and saw the smoke coming from over the police station which we thought had been hit. My customer was an RN and we jumped in his pickup and headed toward the smoke. As we neared the Murrah we met several wounded and bleeding older people and drug them into the pickup bed and I stayed in back holding them in because they were addled. We took wounded to Saint Anthony and the Doctors and Nurses a hundred strong waived us in and took the wounded. It was a day when Oklahoma City stood tall.
We both received letters of commendation from the Mayor and City Council which adorn my office. I can still well up tears for that dark day and the crying souls at the Murrah wreckage frantically searching for loved ones.
These rich white women are all United States Senators.
Obama holds the record for putting each foot in both sides of his mouth.

I found it in the waiting room at my eye doctor's office and subscribed(you can subscribe or pick it up free at hundreds of locations) for the four families that graduated from our home who are now busy parenting our nine grandchildren from in the greater Oklahoma City area. This is a delightfully written and eye pleasingly crafted magazine that will bring you great events and real help in your family relations and plans. Tell Sarah you saw her mag here. http://metrofamilymagazine.com
from their events for this month
MetroFamily events are designed to prove parents with exactly the information they need, up close and personal. We host our own events and we also support many community events.
Up next is our annual Summer Adventure Expo and Cover Kids Contest, scheduled for Saturday, April 19th, at Science Museum Oklahoma. Mark your calendars now and get ready for a fun day of hands-on learning, for your children AND you. In addition, your child can be entered into a fun contest, with the top three winners getting to be featured on our MetroFamily covers. Learn more here.
Have your students ages 7 to 12 get ready to enter our annual Reading Take You on Fun Adventures Art Contest. Stay tuned for more details coming soon.
Parent University: Held every fall and spring semester, these events feature nationally-noted child development and education experts speaking on topics of interest to parents. For example, in February, 2007, we brought Dr. Mel Levine, America's top learning expert, to a sell-out audience of parents and educators to talk about "One Mind at a Time" and the Schools Attuned program. Most recently, Dr. Michael Popkin presented on his new book "Taming the Spirited Child: Strategies for Parenting Challenging Children Without Breaking Their Spirits."

This is a "gotta see" movie picture show that has the licenced unestablished education community howling at the moon. Ben Stein pokes fun at the slip shod manner in which the theory of evolution has been structured and presented as fact with the resulting shunning of anyone with another opinion.
Opens this Friday to long lines...get there early

A day...a glorious day is coming!
and all heaven shall soon resound with the triumphant song, "Thou art worthy...for Thou wast slain and hast redeemed us to God by Thy blood" (Rev 5:9).
The shameful Cross will be followed by a glorious crown, and "every tongue shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
"Mighty Victor, reign for ever,
Wear the crown so dearly won;
Never shall Thy people, never
Cease to sing what Thou hast done.
Thou hast fought Thy people's foes;
Thou wilt heal Thy people's woes!"
It is well with my soul..

The ultimate determinate in the struggle now going on for the world will not be bombs and rockets but a test of wills and ideas - a trial of spiritual resolve; the values we hold, the beliefs we cherish and the ideas to which we are dedicated -- Ronald Reagan
Reagan is gone to his good reward but the spiritual battle continues with the first US Representive taking the oath on the Koran and a US Senator who is a former(?) Muslim both from a religion whose basic tenat is taking over the world. The Muslims have bombed the twin trade towers in New York City, believed involved in the OKC bombing and are demanding nationwide that we observe their myraid rules of behavior. The Muslim percentage of the population is estimated to be over 1% of the population scattered evenly accross our country. 83% of Americans polled by ABC News recently indentified themselves as Christain. We must reasert our Christain hertige and affrim that the laws we have are Judeo/Christian based and not allow the encrochment of principles that are determental to our civilization. 2007/01/06jdm
Don't Tread on My Flag
We must be very concerned about who we elect as President and Commander in Chief...They must be willing to affirm the Christian roots of this country and the heritage of free enterprise and religious freedom. The must disavow any connection to any other world opinion than one that puts American interests first! They must pledge to never be the instrument of American submission to any authority that subverts the High Law of the Constitution of the United States.At the very least as a potential Commander In Chief of United States Armed Forces they must be able pass and receive a personal Top Secret Clearance background check that we demand of our defenders.God Bless the USA Keep us Free!

Tracks of a friend in the snow
I have lain on the path of bone chilling fear ... watched as the death angel hovered near ... Midnight I rode the trail where black lion stalked ... my steed snorting his course stayed.. balked ... I lost my seat and the moon swirled around ... my head was the first to kiss frozen ground ... My body bounced down the Arbuckles crag ... the earth drank my blood and there I laid ... and dreamed the dream of death’s opening door ... of life unlived and path’s untracked with joy untasted ... my future my claim on living gone as I lay wasted ... but awareness came as light chased away the night ... My companion grazed close by had kept the cat away ... snow tracks around my death bed testified to his stay ... my shirt red soaked with life’s precious fluid staining the ground ... I drug my pain racked body to the saddle and started down ... past the still waiting mountain lion eyes peering from thick weeds ... the smell of my blood kept him waiting to quench his savage needs ... I looked back as he smelled my blood spilled in the snow where I lay ... then followed us for awhile before turning to find unguarded prey ... Danpatch went to equine heaven during the next season’s winter strife ... But in my dreams I still count the tracks of my friend who saved my life.
. . jdm10/23/2006 based on a true occurrence with some literary license applied...My dad was a cowboy and Danpatch had been his favorite horse until he was retired to be my horse. At the time of the poem Danpatch was over twenty years old and I was 12. Gosh I miss him!
