Tomorrow we get to cross the Red River and moo at lots of cattle.

In this post: Shopping options, time travel.

Good news, people! It’s still my birthday for three more hours, which means there’s still a decent window of opportunity to send a present. I suggest Thank you.

In case you’re old enough to feel nostalgic about weird horseshit like this, click here to check out Sears’ entire 1964 Christmas Wishbook online. A few of the stunning bargains appear below for your possible interest.
Sam and I will be heading to the Choctaw Casino tomorrow to celebrate my 62nd birthday with penny slots and their famous lunch buffet with sugar-free pie and the world’s best pea salad. The map below indicates: A) Howdygram headquarters; B) the Choctaw Casino in Durant, Oklahoma; and C) President Dwight D. Eisenhower’s birthplace in Denison, Texas. This is a huge deal in Denison but I don’t know why anybody cares; Einsehower’s family moved him to Abilene, Kansas, when he was only two.
Incidentally, the trip from Mesquite to Durant is about 92 miles each way but we don’t mind because it’s a picturesque drive on U.S. 75 and we get to cross the Red River and moo at lots of cattle, which happens just north of Sherman. One of these days maybe we’ll take a few photos.

Thank you for reading this!
