Museums and More Museums

One of our favorite things to do is go to museums; the small kind that you find in out of the way places.

Wednesday are goal was to go to the Tom Mix Museum in Dewey, OK. Not a very big place but had lots of interesting stuff in it. We really hadn't planned to go but across the street was the Dewey Hotel Museum. Great building with three floors of antiques and stuff. One of the rooms on the third floor was supposedly used to secretly play poker. Bank could be seen out the windows so the local sheriff could watch out for possible robbers. Warm and sunny day; great for getting out and about.

However, today when we got up it was raining cats and dogs and continued all day. We did not let that change our minds; we headed for Claremore, OK, to see what was in the Will Rogers Museum. Great facility.....huge and very nice! They show his movies all day in a theater in the building. It's lots of fun to see all the pictures and memorabilia.

Well since we were close we again went the the J.M. Davis Museum. This museum is amazing......tons and tons of guns that J.M. Davis collected. There is also several other collections there but nothing compared to the guns. Nolan loves guns and knows lots about them and both this time and the last time he didn't make it through every isle. I of course looked at some but mostly they all looked the same to me.....either a pistol or a rifle.

In between museum we ate pizza and it was still raining. Most of the way back to our trailer, it was still raining. About 5:00 p.m. it was still raining but the dogs had to go outside.....I got soaked and so did they!

Not sure what we're doing tomorrow but have I said how much I like this lifestyle!
