116|365 It’s In The Bank (4/30/11)
After having a cup of coffee at my brother-in-law’s house, Keith and I headed out for a day trip. We ate lunch in Ardmore then we shopped in an antique store where Keith bought another old camera. After that, we drove over to Tishomingo and toured the Historical Society Museum that is in the old Bank of the Chickasaw Nation. We had the ‘nickel tour’ and then were left alone to tour the small museum, which includes items from the old bank and other donated items from residents such as equipment from a US Post Office, dentist, eye doctor, funeral home, etc. After touring the museum we drove through the National Wildlife Refuge in Tishomingo.
Next we drove to the WinStar World Casino located near the Oklahoma/Texas border and played a couple of the slot machines. The size of that casino is amazing and business is booming especially with Texans. Soon we were on our way back to Oklahoma City and we stopped at the lookout point just north of Ardmore and took a few photos of the scenery.
It was a good day! More of my photos are on flikr and perhaps I’ll upload some of Keith’s later.
