I DISTINCTLY REMEMBER THE MA-HU MANSION  - BUT THEN I ALSO REMEMBER OERTLES BEING AT 29th & MEMORIAL TOO NOT WHERE OTHERS HAVE SAID IT WAS
REMEMBER SEEING LEON RUSSEL & FRIENDS ( YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE WHO ALL WE SAW -- SERIOUSLY) DRIVING AROUND TOWN TOO -- AND GOING BY HIS HOUSE NEAR WOODWARD PARK
TULSA WAS THE BEST PLACE TO GROW UP IN IN THE EARLY 60's


Oertle's was on 11th street for many years.  Then moved to south Memorial in the late 60's.  There were still longhorn cattle at Ma-Hu then.  They gave out silver dollars at Halloween.  That ended after about the second Halloween we lived in the neighborhood.  Made it worth the walk up that long driveway!  And there was an alligator in the small pond on the southwest corner of the property next to the small concrete building - at least that was the story....

The barn at the back burned down and since it was full of hay, it made quite the conflagration!   The wind was very strong from the south that day, and there were a couple of houses in Johannson Acres that got their roofs toasted!  Flames were literally over the roof of one of those houses!  Did not catch fire, but it was close.  Did require a new roof.

Oh, yeah...you don't really have to yell.  We can hear you.

Seems like I remember Leon drove around in a white Rolls Royce.

I donít share my thoughts because I think it will change the minds of people who think differently.  I share my thoughts to show the people who already think like me that they are not alone.
