Thanks everyone who ordered the shirt and supported a great cause, Serve Moore. Thanks to Lance West and KFOR in Oklahoma City for helping really launch this campaign into the public eye.
And a HUGE thanks to my dear friend, Tiffany Riley and her unbelievable team at LivyLu. First they took my amateur design and turned it into not just a cool novelty shirt, but an attractive designer tee. Then, they put the shirt on their website and are processing through all the orders, including packaging them for shipping.
If you are not familiar with LivyLu’s clothing line, do yourself a favor and check them out, I’m sure you’ll find something on there you HAVE to have. www.shoplivylu.com
I will be delivering a check to Serve Moore, probably the 2nd week of June.
It was a fun ride. I’m glad the tigers are safe, now let’s pray it will stop raining some time soon in Oklahoma and Texas. We’ve had enough.
Thanks again everyone for making Tigernado a HUGE success.
Will Rogers once said, “If you don’t like the weather in Oklahoma, just wait a minute.”
I think our great state needs a new state motto:
OKLAHOMA: BRINGING YOU ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME WEATHER AT LEAST 4 TIMES A YEAR.
On May 6, 2015, Oklahoma City and its surrounding communities faced another once-in-a-lifetime weather situation. This day didn’t bring us F5s, thank God, but it did bring high winds, tornadoes, hail, flash flooding and…tigers on the loose. At least that’s what we were told at approximately 9:45PM, when the Grady County sheriff sent out a tweet that said the Tuttle Tiger Safari had taken damage, and the animals have gotten out of their pens.
I freely admit it. I’ve taken teachers for granted. Sure, as a kid, you wanted the ones that weren’t too hard on you when you screwed up, or maybe
the ones who never noticed when you did.
As a parent, you merely hope they will turn your children into the smartest kids in town. We look at state rankings of schools and hope ours is smarter than that dumb school down the street. Because, by God, my kid needs to have a good job someday so I’m not supporting them till they’re 35.Continue reading
American Sniper, the true story of the “deadliest sniper in U.S. military history,” starring Bradley Cooper and directed by Clint Eastwood, is setting box office records, and at the same time, causing controversy in Hollywood. People seem to be having a hard time distinguishing whether or not the man Cooper portrays in the film, Chris Kyle, is an American hero or not. Let me lay my feelings on the table for you straight away; he is.
I saw American Sniper, and it didn’t hit me the way I thought it would. I didn’t “enjoy” it, and you probably won’t either.Continue reading
The Big Apple. I don’t even know what that means. I guess it’s referencing NYC being so great, you want to take a bite out of it. I’m not much of an apple fan. I like donuts and pizza. That’s fine, we’ll stick with Apple.
On December 12, 2014, I took my wife to NYC for the first time. It was an eye-opening learning experience for both of us. If you’ve ever wanted to visit there, this list is for you. If you frequent there, or live there, maybe you’ve forgotten what it’s like to experience it all for the first time. Here’s your chance to see your city from the eyes of a beginner.Continue reading
Contrary to popular belief, being a parent is not hard. You can wake up in the morning, and as long as you spend the rest of the day keeping yourself and your offspring alive, you can consider it a success. In fact, it’s so easy, thanks to playstation, xbox and netflix, you can often parent in cruise control, from the other side of the house, especially in the summer. If you time it right, you can get in a couple of naps, a trip to the store, or maybe the movies, and they’ll be none the wiser. The summer can go by so fast if you play it right. Let them sleep till noon, throw them in their room at 9pm, BAM! The day’s over.
