A Fine and Fancy Thursday

Robert, Paul, Kathy and I spent the better part of an hour after lunch talking, including a long phone call with Scott Andersen.

Last Thursday I drove to Tulsa to hook up with Robert “R. E.” Stinson to have lunch. We met our long-time acquaintance Paul Lehman and his wife Kathy at India Palace, my favorite Tulsa restaurant, and one where many benchmarks of relationships with my Tulsa peeps have been set. Robert and I hadn’t laid eyes on Paul in 22 years, and we’d never met Kathy. Everybody had a great time, after which the Lehmans (Lehmen?) left, and Robert and I chased down some of his kin on the walkover bridge along Riverside drive. Another great time.

After his folks left, Robert and I spent an hour or more on the bridge, making pictures. (I’ll write more about that on my teaching blog.)

We finished the day at sunset trying to photograph Oral Roberts University’s beautiful campus until security ran us off.

It was a great way to spend a Thursday.
