Day 87 - Oklahoma City OK - Thursday, Sept. 23, 2010

We start our day with the usual walk around the neighborhood with Jake.  I am not surprised to see crepe myrtle trees this far south, but am surprised and delighted to see some of the trees that grow in climates colder than the South.  Best of both worlds here.

Then I see a banana tree -- now this is scary!
It is a pleasure to walk for blocks and see the houses that are in this downtown section of town, called "Heritage Hills."  This historic neighborhood acquired the name when three of the city's first residential areas were joined to form the first Historic Preservation District in the state of Oklahoma.  

It is truly beautiful.

Soon we join the meeting that we are here to attend in the Gaylord-Pickens Museum and get to see friends from several states that are members of our association.  At the close of today's session we have a cocktail hour complete with live music,  at the Oklahoma City Museum of Art, located in the Arts District.  

Dinner is at Bricktown Brewery Restaurant, which is housed in a restored warehouse that was formerly a wholesale grocery and candy factory.  There is an open, spacious game room, flanked by a dining area and private dining room.  

Good beer, good food, good fellowship, good evening!

Willie of Walldog, Willie and Jake
