Seeing America - One Job at a Time

Oakley, Kansas
Birthplace of Buffalo Bill

He claimed to have killed over 4,000 buffalo while riding a horse.

Now here's a couple of old buffalos

There was also some Annie Oakley information there. 
She was a star in Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show.
I wonder if he gave her the stage name Oakley after his hometown.
(As a child, I wanted to be just like her -
or at least like the Annie Oakley on tv! 
She wore great fringed outfits!)

And there was an great quote attributed to her

"Aim at a high mark
and you will hit it.
No, not the first time, nor the second time,
and maybe not the third.
But keep on aiming, and keep on shooting,
for only practice will make you perfect.
Finally, you will hit the bull's eye of success."

Didn't the Apostle Paul say something like that?

I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call
of God in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 3:14)

 Aim for perfection, listen to my appeal, be of one mind, live in peace.
And the God of love and peace will be with you. (2 Corinthians 13:11)

Well, our AIM for tomorrow is Tioga, ND.
The roads are reportedly open through flooded Minot.

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;
And through the rivers, they will not overflow you.
When you walk through the fire, you will not be scorched,
Nor will the flame burn you. (Isaiah 43:2)

We left the fires back in Texas
and headed for the floods.....
I have no doubt that He will be with us there too.
