It’s a Small World


Happy anniversary John D. on Friday, August 4!

August 4, 1979 in Norman at noon was just about as hot as you can get. Why we decided that was a good time to get married I’ll never know.

Probably wanted to make sure we didn’t interfere with the Oklahoma Sooners football schedule.

Doesn’t seem like 44 years have gone by since that day.Time flies when you’re having fun!
