"I'm Proud to be an Okie from Muskogee"

   Ok, I'm not really in Muskogee nor am I an Okie, but I am working about 40 miles away from Muskogee near Dustin, Oklahoma. I got back into Paso on Tuesday afternoon, and had to be on a flight to OK the next day! Unfortunately, I guess there was just not enough time for me to get ready, and I missed my AmericaWorst flight by a few minutes. Luckily, there was a delayed United flight that would get me into Dallas just before midnite. I drove through a wicked electrical storm that night from Dallas to OKC, and arrived at the office the next morning to find out that (as usual) the job was delayed a day. The phrase "Hurry up and Wait" must have been invented by someone who works in the oil patch, because it seems like I always race like a maniac to get somewhere and then sit around for a day waiting for things to get started. The only time that a job is ever ready on time, it is when I am late!!!!
   After arriving on location this morning and getting everything ready to go, they said they wouldnt be ready for at least 5 or 6 more hours, meaning they would need me on location right around midnite to get to work. I got myself a room down here in MacAlester, OK (which is currently overrun with some sort of old-lady convention) and expect a call sometime in the night that I have to head back out. I'll try to catch a few winks while I can!
