Refreshing Difference

Like most Americans, Cliff and I have spent the past 24 hours glued to the t.v. watching the coverage of the tragedy in Nice, the attempted military coup in Turkey and wondering what the heck is happening in our world!  Seriously makes me want…

Parades

Late last spring and into the summer months I wrote a handful of blog posts that I never published.  I am sure I did this intentionally as we were in campaign mode and I was a little paranoid…or protective…. or tired of being in…

More Tales from the Trail…

June 5, 2010 The Senator’s fundraiser was fabulously fun. They always are – but that will never change the fact that I am apprehensive each and every time.  I suppose in my eight years of being a Senator’s wife, I have realized that when…

Adrenaline Rush

I love elections.  And, I love this photo of the Senator that was taken the day his opponent dropped out of the race.  It speaks volumes to me. If the Senator were on the ballot, I would be five pounds thinner, losing hair and…

Making a Difference

I just wanted to share with you what I think is the best campaign ad in support of an outstanding Oklahoma candidate for probably the most important elected position this cycle in Oklahoma: State Superintendent of Public Instruction. I know, I know….I am getting…

Extraordinary, because voters went to the polls in record breaking numbers. Extraordinary, because my Senator’s opponent decided to withdraw from the race for State…

Political Photographs

We had a serious dilemma around our house recently. No, there was not a leak in our roof, the dog was alive and well (the last time I checked) and the dish washer was in full working order…maybe. No, it was much, much more…

Reminiscing…

Seven years ago today the Senator won his party’s nomination for state Senate coming out of a heated six way primary and spirited run-off election.  I really only remember this exact date because we worked like dogs to get him across that finish line,…

Mail

It’s summer time, the kids are enjoying their favorite activities, the Senator is working his other job and I am trying to impose some sort of structure on our carefree and happy family life.  Thank goodness it is not an election year, I repeat…

Favorites

Meet two of our very favorite pastors, Mark and Jennifer Crow. Yes, the Senator has that deer in the headlights look that our son says he gets when he is really excited to see someone.  And he was…excited to see them. Roughly seven years…
