The Best Place to Get a Manicure in Ft Towson, OK 74735   Some time ago, I decided it was time to buy all the necessary tools to do gel manicures on my own nails.   So, different colors of gel soak-off polish, a super nice adjustable lighted magnifier, UV LED light, varioius stainless tools for scraping on the gel polish after soaking, cuticle pusher, cutilcle oil.. etc etc were soon purchased and a "manicure bag" was put together     BECAUSE I'm not going to sit in one spot very long to do a manicure unless the scenary is totally gorgeous or I'm doing something else at the same time; like watching a movie or some similar activity. That's part of the reason that I don't like going to the Nail Salon to have my nails done... just can't stand to sit that long in one spot.    So off with th...

Multi-Family Occupancy of a Unique Kind ~ Geese on Raymond Gary LakeThis week gave me a much needed comp day out of the office.   I'm pretty intense as a Real Estate Broker; carrying my "to do" list with me all of the time. For those of you that want to offer advice, writing it down does not remove it from my mind.   I've always been intense at whatever career position I've taken on. It's the way I'm built.  At the same time, there has to be days away from it.  Wednesday was just that day.  I'm not schooled on the difference in geese and ducks so if these are ducks bear with me. :)   My early morning discovery of a family of geese on our shoreline was not new.  This family, of two adults and 6 young ones, had visited when the babies were much smaller.  I love watching them.  The 2 adult...

RAYMOND GARY LAKE IS A VERY SPECIAL PLACE! Week-End at Raymond Gary Lake.  We've had lots of fun over the years at Raymond Gary Lake. Don and I have fed the ducks and geese at Raymond Gary Lake. I've got photos of Philip, my son feeding the ducks and geese when he was a boy. I've got photos of his children, my grandchildren feeding the ducks and geese. Now it's the fourth generations' turn. We had a week-end with my granddaughter, Chassy and her husband Travis recently at Raymond Gary Lake. Their little one, Travis III, had a blast. No ducks or geese came but their time is coming. Some places that we frequent during this life, become special to us. Raymond Gary Lake is one of those. It's smaller and quieter than the big Corp of Engineer lakes. Did I say quieter?.... unless there's a fam...

Property has been removed from this blog.    One of the most beautiful yards around the lake.  Gorgeous Flowers and Shrubery. So much work and thought has gone into the plantings in the yard of this home. This is 1.79 acres that is waterfront Raymond Gary Lake. You will not find a better fishing lake where you can own the shoreline.   For information about Lake Raymond Gary, please review the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservations rules and regulations concerning allowed activities on Department owned lakes.These regulations can be found at http://www.wildlifedepartment.com/laws_regs/fish1415.pdf  or in the printed Oklahoma Fishing Guide booklet.

Raymond Gary is a spring fed lake.  Many springs flow into this lake.  Water flows over the spillway all of the time due to the supply of spring water that is always flowing into Raymond Gary. I've been told that these are some of the same springs that supply water for the town of Fort Towson. The water is fairly clear water.  The lake doesn't look that way because it has a black mud bottom that you are looking at.  Look at this picture shot today.  The lake was overfull... lots of runoff in it so it was more turbid than usual and YET look at how clear the water is that is over the boat dock.  Those boards are about 4 inches below the water's surface.  Look at these two water surfaces.  One is in the lake and one is over the boards.  One looks murky and dark, one looks clear.  We have h...

You must visit Raymond Gary State Park. It's a favorite spot to spend time if you live in Fort Towson, around Lake Raymond Gary, Sawyer, Hugo, or Valliant, in Southeast Oklahoma. Raymond Gary state park is enjoyed by everyone. It's a great place for: Fishing:  In the past, The Oklahoma Department of Wildlife has conducted electrofishing surveys  on the lakes in Oklahoma.  The last data that I could locate was released in February of 2003.  According to that article on the Kansas Angler Website: "Among lakes smaller than 1,000 acres, Adair Recreation Lake in Adair County produced the most bass per hour during spring electrofishing surveys conducted by the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation. In terms of overall numbers, Adair Lake produced 198 bass per hour of electrofishing, a ...

Reasons to own property at Lake Raymond Gary at Fort Towson, Oklahoma: It's the people!  I've not met a group of people anywhere that are more "down to earth" friendly than the folks that live around the water on Lake Raymond Gary.  They have moved to the location from just about every state in the union and from all walks of life and occupations.  It's the quiet!  With a speed limit of 6 mph on the water, it's a pretty peaceful lake.  Summertime is best with kids out of school, enjoying the water....but then fall is great with the vivid yellows of the hickorys and elms mixed with the evergreen cedars....but then spring is nice with the fish waking up and hungry....but then winter's great, sit by the fire and watch the water or go fishing on warm days.  It's the Fishing!  Crappie, Bass...

Living at the lake, Raymond Gary Lake in S E Oklahoma is a little slower pace than life in other places - including the speed limit allowable on the water. Raymond Gary is called a "no-wake" lake.  Your boat is not supposed to make a wake when it goes across the water.  Speed limit is 6 miles per hour.  It doesn't matter what kind of motor or what kind of boat - don't go faster than 6 mph. There is often a discussion at the Lake Association Meetings on how to enforce the water speed limit.  The People that have chosen to buy property around Raymond Gary Lake have decidedly chosen the slower pace of living and they expect lake users to obey the law. Raymond Gary is a spring fed lake meaning that the water stays just about the same level all of the time.  It has a wide spillway so water i...

  It always amazes me that people drive through Ft Towson, Ok on a daily basis and do not know that the town is nestled on the banks of Lake Raymond Gary.  They will call me and ask why they can't find waterfront property in S E Oklahoma and when I tell them about Lake Raymond Gary, where you can own the shoreline and catch record size bass, crappie, and catfish, they do not have a clue as to where it's at.  Yet they will tell me that they drive between Hugo and Idabel weekly, sometimes daily.  They travel highway 70 which cuts across the northern tip of the lake, but the lake doesn't look like much at that point....just the highway bridge and a train trestle.   But now if you want to know about the lake and how beautiful it is and how to live right there on the water in a lakehome even...

Fort Towson is a hidden small gem in Southeast Oklahoma.  It is nestled on the banks of Lake Raymond Gary.  City limits takes in the lake and the houses around the lake.  You can fish from your back yard, and still have city utilties including sl,  and paved streets, garbage collection. What more could you ask for? Although there's not any major industry to speak of in Fort Towson, per se., Hugo Oklahoma and Paris Texas are near by. Are you a history buff?  Then the old fort remains and the story and artifacts that go with it will interest you and a new museum is planned for the area to highlight the fort. Great country folks, crappie, bass, and catfish fishing, 4 lane highway right through town. We truly enjoy Fort Towson, the people there, and the lake. Interested in property in Fort ...

Raymond Gary Lake, The Only Lakefront Community in Choctaw County with Boat Ramps - Near Hugo, OklahomaRaymond Gary Lake in Choctaw County Oklahoma is the only lake of any size in the area where you can own the shore and live on the water. Lakefront property where you can have a boat dock..there are boat ramps on the lake for your use also.  There is one other very small lake in Choctaw County, Schooler Lake, but it is so small, it does not have boat ramps...Raymond Gary Lake is very unique for our area being the only lake where your back yard ends in water and if you've built a dock, it ends with a dock out over the water.   This lakefront community has approximately 10 mile of shoreline that is mostly privately owned.  There are about a dozen sub-divisions around the lake with varying...
