Photos not too Grand of West Tulsa Fire
This bottom picture I took around 8 pm when I couldn't take that horrible odor stinging my eyes and throat anymore. Didn't get the ones of flames over the roof tops as I was handing over my car keys to get those who wanted out out. I stayed along with 2 of my neighbors. My daughter returned after 10 or so and took the other photos for me. It will be burning for hours they say, it's now 11 pm. I keep hearing popping noises but no BOOMS lol I hear helicopters. Click to enlarge.
Update at 10:08 PM
Most the street evacuated since there were 30 feet high flames and vehicles speeding everywhere. Population control I suppose. No one would tell us either way or what each siren/alarm meant so to play it safe many have taken the babies and split. I stayed here and told my family to ask the woman across the street if she needed out--she decided to stay and my neighbor to the North. Peeps to the south of me took off later (didn't look out for anyone else) and people drove by and said "bad fire, you should leave" lmfao. Yeah. I could have walked with the blind lady somewheres I'm sure lol. Anyways, It's good to know folks care. This is funny actually. I called East Tulsa and told my son how to handle insurance money if I croaked. It's been going on since before the original post 8:42 PM) so plenty of time if they needed to get on loud speakers or anything.
Really no excuses for anything in this city lately. Close down schools and spiffy up unused parks with expensive landscaping and decor. I'm sure they'll say it's a different fund etc. People really believe this crap too. Hell, sell your wardrobe and keep a school open you jerk! lol Nut cases. Lots of money --lotteries turnpikes---bad roads and no schools. Fancy crap in an unused park though. Wow. But I'm sure they "have to" Whateva. I believe and follow blindly=sure.
Well, she hasn't blown yet :-)
I Think I'll eat that hamburg the kids left behind.

I'm trying this out and so far so good
Seems like you get a reasonable amount of points without depending on Cliques of the community to allow for them so to speak. A lot of content sites are not really dependent on content to say the least. And the last thing the social sites do is socialize--it's all about copied photos and quick meaningless posts for points. The comments aren't even communication. This is not the case all the time with everyone, but usually with the ones you hear from the most. So Swag bucks seem to be what's going on. I signed up for Listia because it seemed to be fun but had no idea what to list. Everything I got, I seem to need or have already given away. But it would be fun to list something.

What about if we don't drive at all? Am I too polite, cautious and laid back off the road as well as on? What does our driving say about us if anything?
I run my errands in a thought-out "loop" the only spare of the moment stops would be within that loop. I'm homeward bound from my last stop and notice someone tailgating me. I look in front of me and there is maybe a car length or two between myself and that car. I'm thinking I can't go any faster than the vehicle in front of me unless I want to some how become as one with that vary vehicle. So now I'm curious. I look back and there is no real traffic in any lane behind me and my follower. The big Nissan is not in any kind of obvious road rage or anything, but could not wait to speed up and change lanes. Was she going to turn? Oh no, she immediately cut in front of me in the tiny space between me and the car in front of me. I'm really not getting it. As we approach the red light she changes to the extreme left lane. She was already in a left turn lane. I'm amused thinking, she HAD to be first in some line--any line--with or without reason. She was no further ahead and what she did made no sense except that she had some hang up about being in the leader spot lol. I say "she" but was it a she? As I pull up to get a look,( like I said, I am curious lol), I realize she is not a she but a short little man with black hair and dark skin. Why did I assume "she"? What in his driving suggested that to me? hmmmm. I guess it's 'cause it reminded me of PTA night in every school parking lot I've ever been in. Is it because he was used to being first or because he is often last in his off road life that he was so determined? If I were to challenge his concept, How far would he have gone to keep his status (if only in his mind)? Kind of scary when you think of things like that. A lot of what we do is no accident. Was it just maybe a little innocent game he plays to amuse himself? Or is it a serious part of who he is?
I've known people that I have rode shotgun with that ....well, I'd kiss the ground when we landed. They seemed like nice enough people off the road but I somehow had a different opinion/ interpretation of things as they cut people off blaming the others for it somehow. They would tailgate slow people, I guess in hopes of frightening them so they cause a wreck? I'm not sure what their reasons were, but I know it is quite common to see this behavior amongst otherwise "OK" people. My conscience really doesn't let me think they are "OK" for any of this. If grandpa wants to drive slow in the slow lane for what ever reason that is fine by me. I will smile and wave as I pass, or I will follow so that people can flip me off or tailgate me instead of him. What cracks me up in a way is that people don't realize the fast lane is really the maximum speed lane. In no way is it required to drive 100mph in it lmao. Some people do not get this concept at all. Which is fine if they can drive in control and with tolerance/respect for those who are actually abiding by the law, but this is seldom the case.
I think it's important for everyone to realize this fact as well; Just because you have a good brakes, Does Not mean the guy behind ya or the one you are cutting off does. So when you tailgate at certain speeds and don't let up when you see brake lights until you have to slam on the brakes, don't think the line behind will be able to stop like that. I know these folks have full coverage and can't wait to collect their new car, but they seem to forget that they have to live in order to drive it. Oh yes, and no, you don't get to choose your lane when turning. Really, you don't. I know some streets are set up horrible and if you don't get in your lane immediately you will lose your chance for miles to turn, but when you kill Gran' ma cause you think it's OK to take her rightful lane when turning left, You are crap. Really, you are.
Are people really as selfish and full of hate as their driving suggest, or are they just that stupid? I'm not sure which answer I'm most comfortable with. I realize people make Boo Boos too. How we react to those mistakes, I feel directly displays to the world who we are.
Maybe if we start thinking in terms of "people who happen to be in a vehicle" instead of "That big truck/little fast car" etc we will do better. That "asshole" still has to go home to his babies and instantly become the off road Daddy he is. And that "dumb bitch" hogging the road still has to make it to her off road life as a provider of milk and love to her newborn. That "prick" that you just flipped off may be the one interviewing you in an hour. And that "slow old bastard", may be your father and someday, if you drive right, may be you.
Ah, but what do I know?
