The formal name of the arena at its opening was the Jim Norick State Fair Arena, named for the city's mayor at the time. The building was also unique in that it had the largest roof of its type in the world. It is the third largest city-owned multi-purpose arena, after Chesapeake Energy Arena and the arena at Cox Convention Center.
It has hosted the state high school basketball playoffs in the past and was home to the Oklahoma City Blazers of the CHL from 1965-1977.

Today, it is used primarily to host events such as rodeos, horse-shows and other equine events, as well as a backup facility for concerts and sporting events. Most recently, it hosted Sam Smith's In The Lonely Hour Tour in 2015; it was his first Oklahoma concert. Coordinates: 35.470604°N 97.573438°W

Graduation and Parents' wishes, Happy Mother's Day


Graduation is a time
When our thoughts turn naturally
To vandalism, sex, and crime,
Now that we at last are free.
Our teachers think we're well prepared
To make decisions on our own;
But now, perhaps, they're running scared
As they listen to this poem.
Don't worry, folks, we aren't crazy,
Though sometimes we look that way;
Just annoyed, bored, and lazy
As we make it through the day.
So just like birds out of a cage
Or slaves set free from toil and pain,
We aim to try to act our age
And be for now a bit insane.
For life too soon will close its doors,
And then as we grow old in years
We'll teach our own kids to be bores,
But hopefully they'll stuff their ears
And do as we dream, not as we do,
Facing life a tad askew.

shadow trail... 

starting from  Anne Ezzell Peters,
we record music at Lone Wolf, with Zhang Chunqiao, Julie Cohen, Emily Claude in it

beginning August, 2016,
Lucinda Southworth, Susan Wojcincki, Beryl Schmidt, and Anne Wojcicki renew driver's liscense

leaving behind old memory,
the yearning moment for silken fire is tense

seashells remain white washed,
egglands use cell phone device to lighten up thoughts exchanges

Grace Hans and Engler Hans sit, feeling boundless wisdom,
joining in Douglas Aichele, Cathryn Castle, Patricia Lee, Alicia Ottino, Alissa Schapiro

Libby Wuller and Jordan Stine will house a summer party,
Kyle Wallace, Dalton Jones, Ann Hargis, Ann Halligan, and Janet Schmidly have fun moving around

printing Leah Henry, Baylee Henry, Laynie Henry as lady of the grace,
we smile, we walk, and we dine at Aspen coffee

Olive Garden is sweet with Italian bread sticks and fresh salads,
Texas Road house and Jimmy's Eggs serve omelets and yummy pancakes

food is good,
soul food is a must

looking at our back,
we find Bill Conger, Connie Fawcett, James Waldo, Amanda Shankle-Knowlton in sherwood

we are grateful for Joseph Singer and Charles Rosenberg, including Larry Page,
we put our hope on David Boren, Barbara Perkins, Doug Perkins, Debbe Leftwich, Joe Dorman

jumping for joy for this summer's rests,
we sit, write, and pin a ribbon on Kim Henry, Mary Fallin, Todd Lamb, Melinda Johnson, Andrew Grimes
