After a couple days of doing things in and around Weatherford, touring Oklahoma City University, and going to a fundraiser for the Hough Hearing Institute, we headed out of town for three nights. So on Thursday morning we drove to Tulsa and there first to the Glicrease Museum of American History and Art. I had never been to Tulsa before, so we did a driving tour of the downtown, and wandered through Boston Avenue United Methodist Church. I got to see the organ console, and the organist came in to practice, so I heard a few of the sounds. I made some photos of the Art Deco exterior.

A parishioner of mine in Thomasville studied at Perkins School of Theology. He did his internship at Boston Avenue and liked the area and so he joined the Oklahoma Annual Conference and has served pastorates in that conference since then.

For supper we looked for Luby's Cafeteria, but were twarted by road construction closures. Apple Maps suggested that we drive for seven hours to Austin. Google Maps showed the location, but added that the restaurant had closed months ago. A search on my iPad located a very fine seafood place (fresh items flown in twice a day), and we ate well.

We did a driving tour of the Oral Roberts University campus in the dark, and Expedia on the iPad found us a cheap but decent place to stay for the night.

Tulsa, day 2, and Claremore —>
