Only in Oklahoma?? Hmmm... I no longer live in Oklahoma, but have a few memories of living in Oklahoma as a kid. We still travel through on our various trips down to deal with the estate of my husband's parents, so I guess I tend to think of certain "physical landmarks" as being my "only in Oklahoma" - like, when we get past OKC going south and we start to go up the "hill" where Arbuckle Mountains and Turner Falls are located, I have a certain "yep, we're HOME!" kind of Only In Oklahloma pride.

I used to think of the Red Clay as an Oklahoma thing, until we went to the island of Kauai in the northern part of Hawaii Islands...we went to the big canyon there in the middle of the island (I do not remember off hand how to spell it - has just about every vowel money can buy and most of the consonants in the English language.). Then we were walking around and looking over at miles and miles of ...RED CLAY clinging to the side of the cliff of the canyon! I remember thinking "Wow, I thought only Oklahoma had red clay!!" (that, and we saw wild Hydrangea bushes growing along the side walls, and I'd never seen Hydrangea flowers outside of prim and properly manicured gardens!)

She girds herself with strength, And strengthens her arms.

When I moved from Texas to Oklahoma after graduating college (1988) - I was an assistant basketball coach at a university where we were hosting a HS tournament - I was confused when 6 girls stepped on the floor to play! Only in Oklahoma and 1 other state, was 6 man basketball still being played. I was shocked! So glad we Okies admitted our girls could play full court ball.

I'm afraid mine's not funny, but I just looked up child abuse on the Internet and found out that by OK law you can beat your kid with a board (aka paddle) or a stick (switch) but can't spank them with a belt w/o being reported for child abuse. That's a Okie moment for sure, if true!

My son says a cow jumping over a fence. I have to say it being in the 60-70's then dropping to the 30's.

The other day I saw a calve on the back of a flat bed pick-up, tied by his tail. I was driving so I couldn't get a pic but when I saw that I thought "Only in Oklahoma" and laughed and shook my head. What is your moment?
