Johnny Rumble:
Diversion

It's interesting how I always manage to make life altering diversions to actually staying in Oklahoma.  The first time it was the military life style that took me away after five years to Arizona and North Carolina for five years, then after a seven year stint back in Oklahoma, I leave for Michigan and California.  Now, I'm heading back for a third tour.  And the best part is, I'm not alone.  I know that I can never "go home."  I'm not so nieve.  But it is familar surroundings, familiar faces, familar accents.  Oklahoma is the closest thing I've ever had for a home state or a home town.

I think my last act of definance will be to urinate on a "Welcome to California" sign.  I hate this place.  I'm ready to go home.



Okie-bound,
