Amy Trip

Most everyone knows, one of my very favorite festivals is Tulsa's Oktoberfest (second in my heart only to Jazz Fest in N'awlins) and my favorite live band is Cowboy Mouth.  Amy Jones is also a big Cowboy Mouth fan, so much so that she was willing to fly up from Houston to go with me to a concert in Fayetteville, AR.  Fayetteville is where I went to college and is 30 miles from my hometown. 

So, we devised an elaborate trip that started with her flying into Tulsa and me whisking her off to Oktoberfest, where we met up with some old friends from ConocoPhillips.  The following day we spent with my parents in Westville, then the third day we shopped in Fayetteville with my Mom and attended the concert that night.  The last day was our travel day as we headed back home and to the real world.  It was a fun trip!

 For some reason they always have bellydancers
 at Oktoberfest.  I didn't know Germans were into this...
Here's Amy and Mark Nel with some people I don't know

As always happens when you travel with Amy, we made
new friends.  Here we are with one of them now.

   More of our new friends

Amy with our new friends

We took some pictures of me, Amy, and Mom on our
shopping day, but I lost those.
The saddest thing is that I forgot my camera for the concert
and I was pulled up on stage.  Like anyone will believe that now...

Oh well, we did have a great time.  Thanks for coming up Amy!
