Museum Trip

Will's room

We recently visited the Will Rogers Museum in Claremore, Oklahoma. The witty rope slinger who never met a man he didn't like was born less than 20 miles from my home, and although I count him among my heroes, I'd never been to the museum in Claremore. I pretty much want to just move in there and live in this room, a recreation of his study in his California home.

After we'd had our fill of Will Rogers memorabilia, we headed just down the road to the J. M. Davis Arms and Historical Museum which houses the largest private gun collection in the world. There were guns, yes, but so much more. Here are some of the things that caught my eye.
