Vickie said, "With the Oklahoma centennial quickly approaching on Nov. 16th, Tulsa is preparing to bury another time capsule. It will be buried Nov. 10th at Veteran's Park. The capsule will be opened in 2057, and the contents will be on display at the historical society. People were asked to bring in items they wanted to donate to the capsule. I took my books and explained that I was a Tulsa native and author and that my books were set during the pre-statehood days of Indian and Oklahoma Territories. The lady took them and seemed excited about including them in the capsule!" Vickie went on to say, "It is really cool to know that at least some of my books will be around fifty years from now. I'm sending a press release to the local papers in hopes they might do an article and give us some free press."
I'd have to agree with Vickie, it is really cool that in 2057, the capsule will be opened and her books will be remembered and put on display. I'll be 76 at the time; maybe I'll still be around to make it out to Tulsa for the event! :)

On a personal note, it's November now, which means I've got the Christmas music playing! As for Jodi, she is doing great. She'll be three months old (already?!) on November 6th. Her favorite activities include eating, sleeping, going shopping with Mommy, and looking at herself in mirrors! :)
