Mohawk Park in Tulsa

Last Saturday we had a BBQ at Mohawk Park, on the north side of town near the city zoo,  and I wanted to share the experience for anyone who lives in or near T-town.  I think it's definitely a Must-Visit at some point on your family timeline.  Something I'd categorize as a "local secret gem."  Like Oklahoma,  it's on the plain side,  but if you look between the cracks,  there's plenty of beauty and recreation opportunities there.

The Catholic, Christian Meaning of Friendship. Is it Dead?

Peanut is sitting in my lap as I sit up in my Okie Armchair this Thursday night.   My "man's best friend."  That little "material soul," as St. Thomas says of animals, would die for me,  I have no doubt.  If not by a mechanism of will or choice, then I suppose by an innate instinct that drives her nature to serve God's natural Providence.

Daily News about the Francis Pontificate. Help!!

I don't know about you, but whenever I visit fellow trad blogs I notice a pattern: often the subject matter is the present occupant of the Chair of St. Peter, and the news is usually negative. It lowers my serotonin levels more than watching CNN.
