Carol do you think it is the water?

I agree that is not a fair question until I tell you that Miss Oklahoma just won the title of Miss America for the second year in a row!

Lauren Nelson just won the title of Miss America at the Aladdin in Las Vegas and was awarded the crown by Miss Oklahoma (Jennifer Berry) who won the title of Miss America last year.

So, back to back, Miss Oklahoma girls have won the title of Miss America.

Now, I repeat the question for you, is it the water in Oklahoma?

Or could it be the weather?

A few weeks ago I wrote a column about a Blue Northern Storm in Oklahoma. For those few who may have missed that column I repeat some of the key points.

We learned how to dress for the winter weather when I was a kid in Oklahoma. We would take some toe sacks and wrap our feet up in them, then take the wire from the bales of hay and wrap the wire around the toe sacks and you could be out all day in the cold and snow and your feet would never even know it was cold.

But, Carol, I know you come from Pennsylvania, and you get a little cold weather and some snow up there but I do not think you ever had the kind of cold wind blow in from the North Pole that we do in the plains of Oklahoma.

I remember once a Blue Northern Storm that came down through Kansas. Let me tell you about an Oklahoma Blue Northern.

The sky in the North turns a very bright blue, hence the name of the storm. Then there is a temperature inversion, and the temperature will drop between 40 and 60 degrees in less than an hour. Then the North wind will blow like a poker player telling a bad beat story.

There is nothing to stop the north wind from roaring down from the North Pole through Kansas. Except for that four strings of a barb wire fence up there near or about Kansas City and most of the time those folks up there in Kansas forget and leave the gate down.

I guess that is why we have so many wonderful poker players and beautiful girls in the great state of Oklahoma. Because there is nothing else left to do except get into bed and pull the covers up over your head. Or put some more logs on the fire and play poker for a few days!

At least until that fellow up there in Kansas puts the gate back up.

Now I ask you Carol and the folks is it the water or could it be the Blue Northern storms?

OK-Johnny Poker Tip of the Week

Don’t be in a hurry to play in a poker pot!

Wait until you have high expectations of winning the pot before you send your troops into battle.

Rome was not built in a day, but it is said that all roads led to Rome.

But all poker hands do not led to winning poker.

Until next time, remember to stay lucky.
