Get Well America Tour – Boise City, Oklahoma – January 20- 22, 2020
I made it to Boise City, Oklahoma. So far, it looks mighty cold, dry and dark. The wind is moving just enough make unexpected noises and gently rock Little Miss Red as tumbleweeds roll down the dirt road. The overnight temperatures were considerably higher than the 17 degrees nighttime Peyton, Co offered, but the intense cloud cover and wind makes it feel just as cold.
Yesterday was good day to stay in as the forecast promised a chilly rain that might dance upon my roof. I was pleased that everything was in order in Little Miss Red, no more sorting or storing or wondering what to do with this and that. This day I could write. And so I have!
Today I ventured into the heart of the very small town of Boise City, Oklahoma, which sits at the very most western side of the Oklahoma panhandle. The county seat sits on less than one and a half square miles. The population of under 1200, as well as many of the buildings are declining, but the heart of the people is full and caring.
I met Pam and Jay who were added to my Road Angels group at Pam’s variety store. Pam was so happy to share with the joys of being in a small town where everyone knew everyone else and was there to lend a helping hand. It seemed to me that there would be a level of basic honesty that can happen when you live so close to other people’s lives.
After quick lunch at the Blue Bonnet Café, I headed across the street to the Boise City High School to introduce the Get Well America Tour to their principal. I love just dropping into places and seeing what happens. He was, like everyone else I have met, excited about the tour and the ideas I was sharing. I left a couple copies of Simply Coaching with him, encouraging him to find something useful within and then pass them on.
Now off to Amarillo!
