Comments: I had a post office box when I lived in Charlotte at
my great neighborhood p.o.
Whenever I shipped stuff to my brother or friends, by at least 3 of the 4
window clerks, would be asked if "...I wanted to ship it PRORR-ity...". The
first few times - I said - huh?
I told my local clerks here in Downers Grove about the regional "postal speak"
and was nick-named "Mr. PRORR-ity" for a while.
NC is such a big state - you have normal speakers and folks with about 3-4
semi-regional accents plus speaking in "Southernisms" that you might NOT
hear in Tulsa.

Comments: About a year ago my wife started a new job travelling
the western part of the state for the health dept.
In a rural farming area, she needed some directions. A farmer was next to
the fence and servicing his tractor so wifey pulls near and asks what road
to take to her destination. Wiping his forehead, and taking a few seconds
to think of his answer, then a big "spit of chaw" and the man pointed down
the road saying "take a right when ya see the taar".
Wifey was not going to ask more and like a man would took off. Nearing the
next section road she saw a big tractor tire leaning on the corner post,
so she turns right. Follows the road to a dead end three miles used for local
dumping. Swallowing her pride, and now thinking more like a woman drives
back to the farmer for a refresher course. "Don't turn until ya see that
taar" now she still doesn't get it, and another time or two the "Taar" gets
a little clearer and turns into Tower as in overhead lines being held up
by a TOWER!!!!!
That night she made me buy her a GPS!

He kept referring to "Oral" in strange ways and I didn't know whether he
was some self-taught lawyer referencing oral argument, or perhaps some
superannuated pervert who was fixated on oral sex.

1868 this past week on ME.
I remember the first time that I ever saw COOL HAND LUKE (my 2nd all-time
favorite movie) on the CBS Friday Night Movie, watching with my Mom around
1972 or 73. She mentioned then that "the man with no eyes" was your brother
and I was, and still am, so impressed with that. You must be proud of him.
I am wondering if you stay in contact with him on a regular basis and how
he is doing, and how you, by the way are doing too?
I'm sure Morgan will appreciate your continued interest in his well being.
Yes, Morgan and I talk often enough to compare medical anecdotes. This is
a pastime of us older folks. Morgan did a lot of his own stunts in his early
days and is now paying the price...just like football players and other athletes.
I just talked to him Sunday in lieu of his 87th birthday. He is the middle
brother of five and is the oldest surviving. He is still sharp as a tack
but as I mentioned above, has some mobility problems; still, he has a knack
of getting where he wants to be.
When he visited here a few years ago, a fellow from the Tulsa World interviewed
him and asked the two of us to pose. So since you're a fan, I have included
that photo. (Webmaster: I was unable to find the interview in the World's
archives, or I would have linked to it. Here is a

And yes, we are all very proud of Morgan and his fantastic contributions

You see, no Zeppelin ever moored at the Empire State Building and the Graf

The Zeppelin in that photo is the USS Los Angeles, and the date was in 1929.
The USS Los Angeles only made a fly by of the downtown Tulsa area, and in
that photo, she is about 1/2 mile away from the NBT tower. She did not moore.

Originally they had a deal with Warner Brothers and I believe Columbia Pictures

a flood of memories came rushing back. I grew up in Tulsa (born in St. John's
Hospital in 1955, and moved away in 1963), and have tons of wonderful memories
there. The internet is a wonderful way to help jog, confirm, or disaffirm
One of the earliest is of Beverly Pool, which was around 41st and Yale. When
I googled it, I saw a blog entry on this from several
years ago. I grew up just south of what is now Southland and Southroads Malls
(one of them is now Tulsa Promenade mall, I believe). Whichever one is on
the south side of 41st Street is where the Beverly Pool was.
There was a house there, which appeared to have been abandoned a number of
years prior. It was a one story, very large house, sort of an '40s contemporary
design. The house had a swimming pool, which after the house was abandoned
was run as a public pool. You could still go up to the house and look through
the windows, but there was nothing in it. I spent nearly all of several summers
there as a very little boy.
Apparently the pool closed some time in 1961 or 1962 as the property was
sold to some developers. After the house and pool were demolished, they dug
a huge hole, which was the basement for the shopping center. There were dirt
ramps down in the hole, and my brother and I spent hours riding down into
the hole and coming back up.
Just one of my many, many fond recollections from growing up in what I thought
was heaven on earth, Tulsa. Thanks for letting me share.
I'd forgotten that Lee was the beneficiary of the incident.

The former site of the Camelot Inn at 51st and Peoria is now occupied by
an opulent QuikTrip. The QT is a great, though nondistinctive improvement
over the ruined castle eyesore that stood in that state for many years.
I ran across the following notes about the last days of the Camelot on this
site, A Short History
of OKon by Tim Frayser. (OKon was an annual science fiction convention
hosted by a fan club, STARbase Tulsa, from 1977 through 1992. I attended
the 1978 OKon II at
the Mayo Hotel in some of its last days before the recent renovations.)
(The 1992 OKon XV was) "held at the rapidly decaying Camelot Hotel, several
room air conditioners exploded over the weekend, and many con-goers refused
to swim in the sickly-green swimming pool.
"Late Saturday night, someone set off a smoke bomb in one of the video rooms.
Nine Tulsa Fire Dept. fire trucks responded to the alarm. The entire second
floor was evacuated for several hours, and one person was treated on the
scene for smoke inhalation. Immediately following closing ceremonies, lightning
struck the roof of the Camelot, which soon closed down for good."
That was the last OKon. Possibly the organizers were bummed out, viewing
those events as bad omens.
"(The Camelot) was bought in '93 by the Mahareshi Mahesh Yogi (of Beatles
fame), but fell into extreme disrepair and was shut down in '96 by the city.
It has been something of a "hobo heaven" (as Wilhelm Murg might say) since
then. Quite a comedown after having boasted Richard Nixon, Gerald Ford and
Elvis as guests."
