Inauguration Day, Part II

The show must go on, and it did yesterday as my great state celebrated the historic swearing-in of Oklahoma’s 27th Governor. It was snowing and cold but those in charge of the festivities at the capitol did a marvelous job of moving the event…

Organization

No, I am not organizing my closets, but rather it is organizational day today at the marble palace for my Senator. I have often wondered why the legislature meets on the first Tuesday in January prior to the beginning of a new legislative session…….

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…

Before the Shellacking

A Different Perspective

Much is being made out of a comment from a gubernatorial debate last week in Oklahoma where the two candidates running for Governor are female.  This election is historic in the sense that one of them will serve as the first female Governor of…

Hilarious

Stumbled upon this today and I think it is absolutely hilarious….and scary…..only because I actually know people like this.  Enjoy!http://www.youtube.com/v/zQ5cGYBV2TQ?fs=1&hl=en_US

Jari or Mary?

Will it be Jari or Mary? If you live in Oklahoma, you know we have a dynamic and historic race for Governor taking place.  The winner will be a woman. The first ever.   We also had a gubernatorial debate last night between the…
