I’m basically from Stillwater (home of Oklahoma State University) which is pretty much considered the same area as Pawhuska and Tulsa. I grew up in a small town called Ripley which is just outside of Stillwater about 20 miles. I actually liked that part of the State and never had any intentions of moving anywhere else on a permanent basis; but, the humidity seemed to be getting worse there every year and it started playing havoc with my asthma. That is why I opted to move out here to Tombstone territory in Arizona. I use zero inhalers, now, and my asthma pretty much doesn’t exist, anymore!
I noticed you said you are from Amarillo. I used to work for the Hastings Entertainment Corp.–and, as I am sure you know, their head office is there.
