How far are you from Catoosa?

I just came across a story about an 80 foot cement sperm whale in need of a good home that might look good in your front yard. See http://www.roadsideamerica.com/sights/sightstory.php?tip_AttrId=%3D14307

Catoosa is only about 10 miles from my crib

and we pass the whale on the way to and fro Hugo's, a favorite weekend breakfast place in Claremore. I'm glad some folks fixed up the whale as it is one of those Route 66 things that NEEDS to be there.

Now this fella, The Golden Driller, is in midtown Tulsa and was visible from my old house in the winter when the trees were bare:

Tulsa Attraction

So Okie was remiss as hostess--I don't remember ever seeing the whale. I can't imagine I would have forgotten it, but in these days of CRAFT, who knows? But we have seen all the other "offbeat" attractions listed, including the world's largest praying hands. Okie is nothing if not inspirational.

You forget to mention

that if you throw out a dollar near The Praying Hands, the hands open then clap shut around the dollar.
