I imagine the stretches of green are pathways for the farm machinery used to harvest the crops. Planting grass or some type of vegetation is necessary to keep the high winds from blowing the soil away. And that’s another picture….there are NO clean trucks out here! Every vehicle is covered in...

Jan 7, 2001 - 1975 August 2 – Dewey

Today I went to Dewey, just a few miles north of Bartlesville. At the Tom Mix Museum I saw some of his silent movies. They were quite funny, partly because the filming technology was so new. The movements were jerky and sudden. Then I toured the historic Dewey Hotel.
