Don, I don't know if I ever mentioned to you, that James Franks...my cousin, grew up
in Ponca City, OK...was the Geologist who tested and told the "oil field
workers" where to dig to discover the biggest gas well in the world, in Liberal, KS.
Just thought you'd like to know that. He heads up one of the biggest oil companies
(either Kilpatrick or Kirkpatrick Oil company,) in Oklahoma City, as head of the
geologists. Very astute "young" man, now in his 60's. (He had all girls,
by the way.)
Am going to talk to his brother Richard Franks (65), and see if he might be interested in
this reunion this summer. I am, and think he and his new wife would enjoy it also.
Hope everyone is staying well. I've just had a complete knee replacement, and am
doing great! Albeit, not sure about the long trekking that might be involved in June,
but love to get outdoors and this sounds like a really neat outing. And of course, am so
anxious to meet all the families who were at the Fort, etc. I really enjoy all the
e-mail you send out. AND...all the inquiries....whew...sure has grown a lot since the
1700's eh! lol
Oh..by the way, please know that I am involved as a Missouri Legislator...Silver Haired ~
House Majority Leader...no less...you can look this information all up on the following
website. This fall I will be a candidate for Speaker Pro-tem when we have our Silvered
Haired Legislation Meeting in October 7-9)...think those are the right dates.
DHSS = Department of Senior Services
The directory has pictures of all the Silver Haired Legislators for 2008. Missouri was
the state that began this pilot program back in the 70's....when we were all younger!
:O) Now..there is a greater need in our state to help our Seniors...especially the frail
ones who cannot speak for themselves.
God Bless..look forward to meeting all of you soon.
