Sunday was a great day. I knew that I was going to be watching a lot of football and I wanted to get outside. Before the games started. Actually I dvr’d the games. Who watches games in real time any more? I dragged Logan along with me. He hates to be seen in public with his Dad now days. I don’t blame him.
We went to Lafortune Park here in Tulsa. It’s a big, combination county park and golf course and tennis complex, and library, and gardens (kind of) with a high school campus in South Tulsa. It has a nice walking track all the way around it and makes for a three mile loop. I’ve run it and walked it hundreds of times in our 22 years here in Tulsa. I love it.
In addition to the tennis players we saw golfers.
And trees, Tulsa has lots of trees. I practiced using the backlighting setting on my camera. I’m in my bare tree mode now days. Happens every winter.
We saw some playgrounds. This is a Y playground across the road from Lafortune Park. The park has some nice playgrounds that were loaded with kids. I’m not really into taking pictures of other people’s kids. Some parents don’t like you doing that and I’m totally okay with them not liking it. So I don’t generally do it.
We saw some water features and bridges on the par three course.
And another bare tree.
I love this moose. He has the most comical look on his face. Why does Lafortune Park have a moose sculpture? If you find out tell me and then we’ll both know.
And a duck pond. They all moved away from me. I don’t blame them. Nobody was cooperating on Sunday.
And a swimming pool Notice the orange hazard fencing. Safety first folks! Some safety person probably required the fencing to go up.
And then more golfers. I had to tell son that it is impolite, but very funny, to yell, “You the MAN!!” when somebody hits the ball. Unless its your boss or a customer, then you say “OH My Gawd! Bob, look how far that went! Look at that thing go” Just make sure that he or she doesn’t whiff it. It comes across a sarcasm then.
Then we come across some manly machinery. Or semi manly anyway. That is like the smallest trackhoe I’ve ever seen.
And a bull dozer and a front end loader. Have I ever told you that I love construction equipment of all kinds?
When we end, he asks in that deep booming voice that he’s getting “Can we go to Game Stop and get a points card.” Whatever a points card is. Something to do with video games. You download “content” with it he tells me. What’s content. I’m such a burden to the young man.
So, what did you do Sunday before the games?
