    We're from Owasso too! Both grew up in Tulsa. Heading back to CSA in 50 days! Can't wait! Jack & Donna ...totally agree with you re: Mexico vs Jamaica ...we made the mistake last year...Jamaica is the only place we want to be! Seriously considering 2 trips a year...the waits are too long!

    Lucky dog .... we aren't headed back until June. But we are headed to the British Virgin Islands in December/January for 10 days. That will hold us until we can get back home.

    I was actually born and raised in Owasso. I only moved away in 2005 when I got married. It really used to be a very small town ;-)

    My husband I leave for CSA on December 1st and I can't wait! Hope you have an awesome time during your trip!
    tkingle66 - We are from Douglass too! Wow, what a small world. There are only 1500 people here in this town and you are the first that we have heard of being "Couplesheads" too. The town is small enough that the people at the bank know when we are going to Couples by word of mouth and set up our credit card for travel mode without us even telling them...lol

    soonerfans - just look at it this way, since we go twice a year, but only for a week at a time, your one 25 night trip takes us almost two years (4 trips) to match! lol We hope to extend our trips to 10 days at a time, but we still have 4 kids to grow up and get out of our house first. One down, four to go

    Well Brian_Mendy....I do see it your way and I do consider us to be lucky enough to be able to go for 25 nights but we have decided if we are going to pay airfare(which I have know idea what we will be spending) I figure if we're there we might as well do all we can do on that one trip!!! 4 kiddo's left??? oh my...haha
    Well enjoy all of your stays at Couples!!!

    You may have known my brother and some of his friends. He graduated from Sooner 1978. Our last name is Heald. Do you remember us?

    oh yeah ... we understand. As long as we were replacing the system, we decided to bite the bullet and get the high efficiency one. So that made it even more expensive. We had to forego a couple of vacations to get past that expense. Our summer vacation was at home by the pool. It wasn't bad but we sure missed being at CTI with our friends.

    And wasn't that OU / TX game the best !!!! HA HA HA ... I loved it !!!! I am still smiling over that one !! But the AP polls are ticking me off. That win should have put us back at the top.

    OMG I think every Sooner fan is still smiling over that win and it was beautiful!! yeah I would have thought that might raise us up in the polls too but we are still #1 in the coaches poll and I keep being told that poll factors in alot but they are showing predictions for the BCS poll and looks like we may still be #3 going into that one dangit!!! Well we did not bite the bullet and go for a high efficiency a/c cause I never wanted to spend that money anyways so I went what's the bottom dollar for a a/c and it was still 4000.00 . Rob said lets just wait it out and I was like Rob it's in the 100's......there is no way we can wait this one out!! LOL Sorry that you had to forego a couple of vacays and hope you get to make it back to CTI soon!!!!! you never told me what island you were staying at in the BVI!! We leave next week for Key West and Key Largo so looking forward to that trip!!! BOOMER SOONER AGAIN MY FRIEND!!!

    Coloradojuli,

    The name doesn't ring any bells, my last name is Murray. But those were the last years of the rivalryand most of the Sooner people I knew wer from playing sports with or against for years.

    We're 27 days out now before we go back home.

    Enjoy your next reach (like there's much chance of not enjoying!)

    Really??? That's so funny! I (Brian) have lived my entire life in Douglass and also graduated from there. I have been a little league wrestling coach in town for 27 years. Your hubby didn't happen to wrestle, did he?

    We will be staying on Jost Van Dyke. This is our 3rd trip there. We stay at the Sandcastle Hotel which is part of The Soggy Dollar Bar on White Bay - best place ever!! We will do New Years Eve "Old Years Night" at Foxy's for a second time. Such a great place to relax for a while!! You two have a great time in the Keys!!

    Let's hope those guys come to their senses and put OU back up there where they belong ;-)

    We'll be back at CTI and CSS in June, 2012 .... not soon enough but at least we'll have the other vacay in December / January to tide us over. We are going to Jost Van Dyke, BVI (do you listen to Kenny Chesney ?) and will be staying at the Sandcastle Hotel on White Bay. It's not got all the amenities of Couples, but is a really nice, quiet and relaxing place.

    Key West !?!?! I would love to go back there and take my bride. I was only there briefly when our cruise ship stopped there for a day. I didn't get to explore much but would love to go back. Have fun !!!

    BOOMER SOONER BABY !!!

    Yep, I graduated in '83 with the first class of Bartlesville Bruins. Can't say I wear the title proudly. I wanted to be a Spartan like my brothers. I was the only one who played sports, both of my brothers were into the music programs.

    SOOOOO, glad to see the OKIE turnout on here. I keep trying to sell this place on my landlocked friends, but some just aren't too willing to bite. ONCE YOU GO....YOU KNOW! However, we may have some" kiddos" from CO coming with us in 2012, and yes SHE is an OKIE, but he's from the Rushmore State.

    Then you're brothers must have known David Innis who transferred over to Sooner because of the music program and went on to Restless Heart fame?

    That Kansas game was a nail biter !!! It was a win but it was a sloppy one. Anyone watching the game wouldn't think OU was rated #3.

    So you can't talk your friends into going to Jamaica ??? They really need to look at it closely. Jamaica is a great place and Couple is the best !!!
