Great story, Don... very enjoyable to see your work and learn more about a fellow Okie who slipped into what everybody is calling "the vortex" (we know it's actually a tornado, but don't tell 'em).

Inspirational!

Nice work and an interesting life. I think the returned scout shows that you always leave a trail as you pass through life. You often touch others in ways that you never know at the time. Sometimes a simple action, or a word in the right place at the right time, can have a huge impact on someone else. Don, it sounds like you've done well.

Nice to know you, I grew up just north of Lawton in Cyril, not far from your country. I still go to the Witchita Mts. Every chance I get.
