Granny's 1950 Jergens Lotion Bottle - Connecting the Present to the Past in Brown Addition, Idabel Oklahoma 74745   Fall is in the air in Brown Addition, Idabel, Oklahoma (74745) as it is in most of the country.  View Larger Map Even though we are in zone 7 of the USDA Hardiness Zone Map,our average minimal temperature range in the winter is 5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit.  Around here starting in August, many people are cutting wood or ordering wood for fireplaces and wood burning stoves. I love a wood fire in the winter.  We keep and maintain some hardwoods on the farm for our firewood.  August is our favorite time to get some of the week-end exercise of cutting firewood. Don will pick what trees need to come down and cut them.  Then a young man that works for us on the farm will come alo...

'Twas a Froggy Mawnin' in the Land of Green.  I often refer to McCurtain County Oklahoma, as God's Green Country.  And the green went a little beyond the grass this mawnin'.    Don and I were busy winterizing the pool and up pops a little green visitor.  Just like a friendly elf, he was in the grass where we were working and was not scared of us at all.  In fact, I put him in a bucket to move him away from where we were working so that he wouldn't get stepped on and when I dumped him out, he jumped back in my bucket!  If he's a tree frog, he must be looking for a new tree.  Maybe he wanted me to help him find a new tree...Sometimes it's time to find a new tree home... just like this little green guy.  Well, if you're moving to Southeast Oklahoma...McCurtain County or Choctaw County, jum...

A friend in Idabel, Oklahoma 74745 has this tree growing in her front yard.  It was the first time that I had seen one like this.  Went looking for the ID on some tree ID sites... no luck. I finally emailed Dr. Wayne J. Elisens at The University of Oklahoma, Norman Oklahoma 73019, Professor, Plant Systematics, Biogeorgraphy and Curator of the Robert Bebb Herbarium and asked him for help in identifying the tree. He came back in a matter of minutes with the name and information on it. So does everyone else know what this tree is and I'm the only one that didn't?  The leaves are heart shaped.  The seed pods are sectioned like an orange.  No noticable blooms and the trunk is really quite interesting.

Clearing Chain of  Title Issues Oklahoma- Hanging Tight With Your Home Sale Transactions!First let me say that I am NOT an attorney and I am NOT giving legal advice.  As a Real Estate Broker in Southeast Oklahoma, I hang tight with my transactions.  When I have a sale contract on a property that I have listed, I make just about every step that happens in that transaction.  Oh yes, there are specialized professionals at every step too.  Like the chain of title in our abstracts.  When the seller's abstract is brought up to date, it goes to the attorney for a TO (Title Opinion).    When that title opinion is finished, I want a copy. I always ask for a copy.  I usually get a copy.  I want to know if there are any title issues that are going to have to be dealt with and if there are, get bus...

This is second in a series on the history of my home town, Idabel, Oklahoma. Again, I invite you to hop up here on my cloud with me so we can see the past and present time for Idabel, Oklahoma 74745.    This is my magic cloud that lets us look back in time.  Today we're going to look back at the time that McCurtain County was established and Idabel was established as the county seat for McCurtain County.   Idabel, Oklahoma is the county seat of McCurtain County.  Not all counties in our nation have a county level of government.    Oklahoma counties do, so being the county seat means that Idabel is home to the county sheriff's office, the county courthouse and jail, and various other institutions that want to be in the same town as the county level of government.  There have been stories...

There are many different types of businesses in America. It looks like this person's business has something to do with goats and he must need to transport several at a time.  I've never seen a trailer quite like this one, but he either bought what he needed or remodeled one to fit his need. . His real estate needs would probably include some pasture for those goats and would need to be a reasonable distance from feed stores and veterinarians.    I had a past client that was a butterfly breeder.  She's a really interesting lady and from time to time, I hear from her or her husband.  The vacant lot that they were looking for was a waterfront lot in Choctaw County, Oklahoma and it needed to have adequate land and space for a greenhouse and enough room to handle the shipping of the butterf...

I did so enjoy the snow this morning.  Even though it was was not easy on the new baby calves... it was so pretty.  They looked like chocolate chips out in the pasture.... but not the pics today.  Drove into town and shot some along the way. We got quite a bit of snow, but no roads closed here,  in fact when I awoke at 6:30 this morn, the snow was actively melting and gutters were dripping water. The car dealers didn't even try to remove it from their inventory because it was already melting.  Snow just doesn't hand around long here if we do happen to get any.  This is the most that we've had since the year 2000.  Ten years ago! There were even people out building snowmen before all of the construction materials were gone. Downtown Idabel. This was shot about 10 am.   By 3 pm today mos...

SNOW!  SNOW!  I'VE GOT SNOW!  YAY - I'M SO EXCITED! The weatherman has been predicting snow for today, all week... I thought, yeah, sure.  Snow... no.  We don't do snow.  Or let me say that we seldom do snow...maybe just a faint white layer once a year that hardly makes it until noon, here in Idabel, Oklahoma 74745 So this morning, I looked out, no snow.  We've had a lot of rain though.  Living on the farm and having my office here also is great... went to check on the cows about 9 am on the Polaris - it was overcast but no snow... in fact quite warm - one of my apricot trees has been working on budding out now for a couple of days.  (I knew I shouldn't have planted apricots in southeast Oklahoma, but the trees have grown into nice ones and I do get a few apricots every year). It's calv...

  I could tell as we approached the flashing lights that someone was not having a good day.                 Sometimes we know by the way that the day starts that it's not going to be a good day. This was early in the morning as I was leaving Idabel... I didn't stop or slow down too much, shot the photo moving along at a pretty good clip, did not want to get in the way, the police and fire truck were already there.    Hope this person's day got better.

My Home is about making memories and I hope that yours is too.  These two boys, Davin and Christopher are my grandsons.  Their father, Philip, learned to cook in the kitchen that they now are learning in, when they come to visit.  There's been a lot of memories happen in this kitchen. It doesn't have granite counter tops. The cabinets are custom built by the boys grandfather out of pine and I wouldn't trade them for any other cabinets in the world, they were a work of love when he built them and that means a lot to me.  This is what HOME means to my family.    It means different things to different people.  If you've got a home to sell in McCurtain County or Choctaw County, call me and let's find that special buyer that appreciates your home.  If you're a buyer looking for a home in my...

It's exciting to watch the change on SE Washington.  This will change the business district somewhat and fill in the gaps on Southeast Washington Street in idabel Oklahoma. We had 23 acres listed immediately next to Wal-Mart and Pizza Hut.  We now have 22 available... There are still approx 6 acres that have road frontage on the busy Southeast Washington Street.  You can be in good company... Pizza Hut, Wal- mart. First Bank and Trust, Kentucky Fried Chicken. Lin Cruisine, and now the new - Aaron's Rent To Own.  They have been advertising in the McCurtain Gazette to hire for the new location. 1 Acre commercial parcels available at $95,000.

D V Fennell Bareback Rider - Final Night at Wrangler National Finals Rodeo - Oklahoma / Missouri Cowboy Wins a Third Place. It wound down last night... but it was a big wind down. D V came out on a horse named "Dirty Jacket".  That horse came out of that chute in a wild high jump but she didn't lose D V.  In fact that would have been a common spot for many cowboys to fail to mark their horse out because Dirty Jacket was high and had a twist in the middle of the jump.  It also looked D V's shoulder took a hit from the chute at the end of that jump that Dirty Jacket made.  D V marked him perfectly.  This mom was tense watching it.  I already knew his score because T V schedules were off last night and the broadcast always runs a little behind the actual rodeo... broadcast is a more conden...

I would like to tell the story of a GREAT referral experience I had with Judi Barrett with Integrity Real Estate. I had been working with a close friend of mine and his wife. I actually drove literally hundreds and hundreds of miles with these folks. They were searching for that "Perfect" piece of land with acreage, and water. Well after spending months with them, we found Nothing. Finally my client contacted me about a particular property in Oklahoma ... Well having only a Texas license, I did NOT want to lose them to an Oklahoma property, but they eventually were adamant about this property. SO, I had to make the decision to turn these clients over to someone in OK. That's when I contacted Ms Barrett at Integrity Real Estate Services in Idabel, Oklahoma. I must say , from the beginnin...
