hanging in Okie’s house in the 1970’s!

  2. Yes, I’m continually amazed by her, too!
    I added a youtube of Stompin’ Tom Connors singing “Okanogan Okee,” to the bottom of the birthday post on Okie’s blog…what a sweet song! Okie is an incredibly strong, capable woman, but you can see the “sweetness/tenderness of her heart” in her poetry about nature.

  3. i must make a stop over at your Aunt Okie’s blog! I’m SO impressed and inspired to think that at 98 there is still creativity and an interest in sharing with others. Simply fantastic! 🙂
