Go-Dogs & NW Okie Travel East...
Yep! Here it is mid-July already! AND... Duchess, Sadie and this NW Okie headed East again for NW Oklahoma, early Wednesday morning, July 13, 2005. We did okay until we crossed Wolf Creek Pass and started downhill towards South Fork. There is this tunnel and a 45 minute wait while road crews were working a few miles north of the tunnel. They are in the process of blasting edges of the mountain to widen the road up the pass between South Fork and Wolf Creek. This photo shows a snapshot of waiting motorists rambling, stretching during that 45 minute wait.Have a Great Weekend and KEEP COOL during these Dog Days of Summer!

Did you ever hear WWII & VJ-Day stories where they gathered in the town centers to celebrate and set their hats on fire? How about some memories of the WWII POWs at the Waynoka Ice Plant? Those are just some of the many Mailbag Corner memories we have for you this weekend.
Ranger Football Players of 1920s... We need your help here for one of our regular readers from NW Oklahoma. Rod has supplied us with a photograph of some Ranger Footballs players dating back to the 1920s. He needs help identifying them. We know who two of the players are: #20 Sam Riggs and #6 Floyd Coldiron. Do you know of someone that could help us identify these Rangers? Check out another mystery in the Mailbag Corner of an unidentified woman with two young men: Haskell REED on the left and Bertsell RIGGS in the center. Thanks for any help you can offer.
We heard from a OkieLegacy reader about having lunch with OSU's Pistol Pete Mascot this last week. It seems that this years Pistol Pete comes from Alva, in NW Oklahoma, as does his parents and grandparents. We hear that this Alvan, Eric Stroud, has only been Pete for a few months but has attended many, many functions in that time. Congratulations to Eric and the STROUD family of NW Oklahoma!
