I spent my first 21 years in Oklahoma with the constant reminders of cowboys, country music and farmland. Oddly enough, and perhaps due to the daily reminders, I wanted nothing to do with the country life. I wanted to read the Wall Street Journal with a purpose and wear clothes that were called "preppy" by those that I went to school with.
I wanted to drive a Porsche or something similar and live in Nichols Hills, known as a wealthy subdivision in OKC. I'm not sure what influenced me onto such a tangent. I came from a middle class family with not much in the way of possessions. We had a modest 3 bedroom home on the edge of the city. I had next to nothing but wanted to live like a king.
Funny how things change with age.

They say home is where the heart is and my heart is here in Arizona with my beautiful family. But I guess a part of me will always be back in Oklahoma and Lonesome Dove sure made me miss it.
Hope the next series with John Voight is equally as good. Too bad his daughter isn't in it ;-)
