The Warren Clinic Tower, 6600 South Yale Avenue, Tulsa. It reflects a lot of sky. This is a long shot from Sue's hospital room in St. Francis a few weeks ago. She had a hip replaced and is doing much better now.
This 874 Auburn Dual-Cowl Phaeton was displayed at the Tulsa Auto Show by Broken Arrow resident Glen Pray. I don't know what it's worth but I bet I can't afford it. There is a very interesting story that goes with this beauty. Read it HERE.
The Red Bellied Woodpecker is distinguished by a red cap and nape, white cheeks and a black and white ladder back. The female has a red nape but the cap is white. The belly is only faintly tinged with rose. These are not common at my feeders.
Harwelden Mansion was built in 1923 by Tulsa Oilman Earl Palmer Harwell at 2210 South Main. The stately mansion was said to be the only Collegiate Gothic-English Tudor Style home in Tulsa. For more see: HERE
When I was a boy growing up in Wagoner this was the blacksmith shop. The shop was open in the front about where the big for sale sign is now. I don't remember his name but the smith was a big man usually wearing bib overalls with no shirt underneath. In my mind's eye I see him standing at his coal fired furnace pulling something glowing white hot then pounding it at a waist high anvil. Every time the hammer came down the sparks flew. That would have been about 1950.
In the center is a cypress tree surrounded by its "knees". The cypress likes to grow near or slightly in shallow water. But the roots need to breath and if the water rises for too long the tree will drown. So the cypress sends up "knees" from its root system like a diver uses a snorkel When I took shop in high school we made nice table lamps from cypress knees.
