SerendipityEverybody this week has been muttering why the organizers of this meeting decided to hold it in Tulsa, Oklahoma. But my own view is that this has worked out wonderfully. This show is being held right across the street from the meeting hotel! Take a look!
Willie Nelson, Merle Haggard, Ray Price, and Asleep at the Wheel.
So one other guy and I went over to get some tickets in our lunch break. We had checked on-line and learned the best available seats were up in a balcony and over by the side of the stage. Still, as he joked, it will still be the same songs over there.
But when we got to the box office, we were issued two seats right in front of the stage in the second row! According to the guy at the wicket, they had become available about 5 seconds before we arrived.
I am looking forward to hearing "Okie from Muskogee" sung in a monster hall on Oral Roberts University campus in the heart of Oklahoma. It might be a bit of an anthem here.
