Our last day in Oklahoma

We managed to fit just a little more into our last day in Oklahoma. We met a local celebrity at L&B Yarn Co., Gnorbert. Gnorbert is a traveling gnome with a daily photo blog. He will be making his first international trip this Spring. We are hoping to keep up with him. He is following our blog too. It was nice to meet another traveler. We visited historical Main Street in Norman. American flags lined the street and many of the buildings looked much like they did in 1900. We saw the James Garner statue. He is a famous actor from Norman. His statue was dressed as the professional gambler Bret Maverick in the comedy Western series Maverick. After walking around Main Street we had our last meal in Norman at Tarahumara's Mexican Cafe and Cantina. We tried the carne asada tacos. We were told that it wasnot really Mexican food but Tex-Mex, a style of food influenced by Mexican cuisine served in Texas and Oklahoma, we aren't really sure what that means but it tasted good. Norman, Oklahoma was fun. We enjoyed the Christmas celebrations with our hosts and their family. We cooked a lot and made a lot of people smile. But our bags are packed and we are off to California. We are excited to see our next destination.
