My aunt and uncle from California were here in Oklahoma visiting for a few days and we took a little trip to Turner Falls. Yes, the same place where I had my excellent adventure last week. It was another gorgeous day and we all enjoyed the pretty views.

On our way back we stopped for lunch at the Chickasaw Cultural Center in Sulphur. The grounds are beautifully landscaped and the food was delicious. All but one of us chose the traditional Indian taco meal which came with a side dish, dessert and drink for only $6. And it was way more food than any of us could eat – a real bargain. My uncle has heart issues and wasn’t quite up to touring the facility but I fully intend to go back again soon to check it out. And yes, I’ll be sure to let my family know where I am. 😉
That evening we all went out for dinner. David was in Minnesota so he couldn’t join us but Chris and Kadi did. We had a nice meal at a local 50s-style diner. Several had the catfish which is one of their specialties. I was still pretty full from lunch so I opted for the fried green tomatoes appetizer as my meal. I love fried green tomatoes and theirs are quite good.
I then took Chris and Kadi back to their house and went over to visit awhile longer. Uncle Carl and Aunt Ruby stayed in the mobile home which had been my grandma’s. It’s a short distance behind my parents’ house and one of my cousins owns it, keeping it for a weekend place for them (they live in the city) and for visiting relatives. One of my cousins and his wife were there by the time I arrived and another one came a bit later with his son. My parents were there, too, of course. We all visited until nearly 9:30 when we decided we’d better let them get some rest since they were leaving very early the next morning. It was a short visit but it’s always good to spend time with family.
