Side Trips and MeanderingsYou know you're working in Oklahoma when:
You are making a pastoral call at the hospital on the day of the big OU-Texas game, and as you walk down the hallway, looking for the room your parishioner is in, you hear snippets of the game from every room you pass.
(I even watched a few seconds myself down in the surgical waiting room with the little crowd that had gathered around the big screen TV there).
My own alma mater is 3 and 0 in conference play, a feat that is making me consider revisiting orange and blue as a fashion statement. They need all the help I can get.
I'll leave you with a favorite shot from our whirlwind Midwestern tour from the summer. This museum in Austin, Minnesota is definitely worth the trip.
