Howdy friends and neighbors.  Whoa!  Last Thursday afternoon it was sunny and warm.  That afternoon the wind changed as a cool breeze came from the north and it had the smell of snow in it!  Early Friday morning, we had a thunderstorm and by Friday afternoon, freezing temperatures and blowing snow.  The blizzard lasted until Saturday morning.  By Sunday afternoon, I was outside in short sleeves, mud boots and sunglasses.  I was tromping through mud and dust was blowing into my eyes.  Yep, that’s Sunny Point, Oklahoma.

Howdy friends and neighbors.  Sorry I missed you last week.  I was off in a foreign land (California) for a visit and didn’t write a column.  It’s good to be back at Sunny Point, OK.  Yep, it was sunny, calm and wet out there; it’s good to be back where it is dry and windy.  Hopefully the dry will go away for a little while this week but it’s just that time of year for wind.

Mason never lost consciousness and at first, I wasn’t sure he was even really hurt. He kept telling me he was “tough.” Well, he was tough, but I wasn’t. All said and done, he had a fracture to his skull. At one point, I thought he was headed to Children’s Hospital in Oklahoma City in a helicopter. My heart almost stopped. Scared, is the only way I know how to say it. The ER doctor then began ruling out things and we stayed in Elk City ICU for two nights, a regular room for a night, and then we got to go home.
