A Noon Walk in Four Photographs

This work tickles me. I have no idea what it is about or why it is there so I call it Tulsa’s Tribute to Exotic Dancers. I mean exotic dancers need love too right?

I’m not one of those who can just work all morning and then grab a sandwich and work while eating and then keep on working. I know people like that and I feel sorry for them. Working your fingers to the bone gets you bony fingers is my motto. Especially on a beautiful day like Tuesday. So after I ate my lunch I fired the Hipstamatic app on my Ipod Touch and off I went to the Brady District, just over the tracks from downtown for a little walk.

I’m going to go into the Hunt Club in the Brady District one day after work and get me a beer. I’m going to do that even though I am not near enough a cool person enough to go do that.

In addition to my Ipod I took along my wide brimmed hat. You see I have a little touch, (non serious, and treatable) of skin cancer on my forehead, face, and hands. So I got the big trifecta treatment (that is what I call it). I got a bunch of lesions froze off and then last week I had a little “burn and scrape” on my forehead and then I got the “chemotherapy cream” that I put on my forehead three times over the weekend.

It tickles me that the Woody Guthrie Museum is in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is in bad need of Woody Guthrie therapy.

So now my forehead looks horrible. It is all broken out and red and draining a little. I’m getting stared at in meetings and a young lady asked me in the elevator today if I was okay. I’m great and getting better every day is what I told her. I told her that it looked worse than it felt. I told her that the old skin is peeling and new skin is underneath.  Dang, what is it taking so long to get to the first floor!? I could tell she felt really sorry for me and that I was just trying to be positive about it. She told me as we got out that she hoped everything was going to be okay. Yeah, well I do too.

I have to tell you, I love almost everything there is about trains and railroads. 

So, I really am okay! But I’m putting on extra sunscreen and wearing my big ole funny looking wide brimmed SPF 50 hat when I’m outside. My dermatologist tells me that she and I will be seeing each other twice a year or so for many years to come. Makes me glad that I picked such a young pretty one is what I say.

What kind of precautions are you taking these days?

Brady District Art Crawl

Friday night the Yogi’s decided to get out and do something besides watch the old boob tube.


We went to Brady District just north of downtown Tulsa for the First Friday Art Crawl.


We saw all sorts of art in museums and galleries.


A lot of it was fun. We met a few acquaintances and chatted. It was fun.


I found some reflective stuff and I captured Sweetie and SuperPizzaBoy. I cut off my own son’s head. That is awfull!! That’s okay though, he’s at that age where he’ll grow a new one overnight. You can see me in the pic above if you can figure out where to look.

At the Philbrook Museum’s new Brady District facility I saw my new avatar. It is a work of art and I am sure that I’m violating several laws but this is already my new facebook profile pic. Speaking of facebook, why are we not friends yet? I’m running out of people to unfriend me.


We finished up listening to a Jazz Band play some “slow burners” as they called him. The music was as happy as the musicians were. 

Great times!!
