The pecan balls and four (!) different kinds of fudge are made (darn you mother for making me in charge of dessert this year!! don’t you know I go overboard?). A few christmas gifts were bought – very few. I love buying gifts, but this year, as you know if you’re reading this blog, was pretty light. If you didn’t get any, it doesn’t mean we don’t love you, and you are in good company.
To all of you out there, if you are out there, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah (Chanukah?), Happy Kwanzaa, Merry Yule, Happy Chrismahanakwanzikah, or Good Tidings and Happy Nothing-At-All (for those who are anti-commercialism + atheist/agnostic = Combo Breaker!).
And Happy New Year. ’09. The year it’s really going to happen!
Oh, and because Rhys delights when I join him on the dark side, I’m going to include the following for your groans and/or amusement:
Oregano Christmas! Rosemary Hanukkah! Garlic Pepper Kwanzaa! Thyme and Sage Yule! Parsley Chrismahanakwanzikah! Curry Powder Tidings, and Salt n’ Pepper Nothing-At-All.
In other words, Seasoned Greetings from us to you.
Rhys Martin was born in Tulsa, Oklahoma in 1981. In 2009, he sold everything he owned and left the country, living out of a backpack for ten months. He discovered a passion for photography while traveling throughout Southeast Asia and Europe.
After returning home, he looked at his home town and Oklahoma heritage with fresh eyes. When he began to explore his home state, Rhys turned his attention to historic Route 66. As he became familiar with the iconic highway, he began to truly appreciate Oklahoma’s place along the Mother Road. He has traveled all 2,400 miles of Route 66, from Chicago to Los Angeles. He has also driven many miles on rural Oklahoma highways to explore the fading Main Streets of our small towns. Rhys has a desire to find and share the unique qualities of the Sooner State with the rest of the world.
Cloudless Lens Photography has been featured in several publications including This Land, Route 66 Magazine, Nimrod Journal, Inbound Asia Magazine, The Oklahoman, and the Tulsa World. In 2018 he published his first book, Lost Restaurants of Tulsa.
Rhys loves to connect with people and share his experiences; ask him about enjoyable day trips from Tulsa, locations along Route 66, and good diners or burger joints along the way.
