Arkansas!

"It's like Pirate Kansas" says my friend Phil. We crossed through Nebraska and Kansas under a bunch of thunderstorms. While in Oklahoma, we visited Elle and Dave and our new friend Marye.

We watched fireworks in a northern suburb of Oklahoma City then spent the day Sunday in Norman, home to the University of Oklahoma. What a gorgeous campus! Dave graduated from OU and was a very knowledgeable tour guide. We went to The Library, a very cleverly named pub, for lunch then went to the real library to see the Great Reading Room.

The visit was very relaxing and we're back on the road now. We've stopped for the night in Hot Springs, boyhood home of President Bill Clinton. Rachel and I are considering a mineral hot bath in the morning. The spa also offers a full body massage, but I just can't do it. Strangers touching me is just...ick.
