John and I moved to Tishomingo with our two children (now grown) many years ago after he finished his tour in the military. John was raised nearby and when we moved here I fell in love with the people, lakes, rivers and woods. Having grown up on the bare plains of South Dakota, I was delighted to move to such a beautiful area. John is retired from his pallet building business, and enjoys watching television and talking to his two dogs. Donna is a Cosmetology Instructor and manager of a beauty college. She is looking forward to retiring soon and spending more time spoiling great grandchildren, gardening and meeting visitors.

We fell in love with the property and built the home so we could enjoy being in the country. It is located one mile by road to Lake Texoma and only nine miles to Blue River, which makes it ideal for fishing, hiking and swimming. The woods are full of wildlife, birds, wild grape vines and dogwoods that add beauty to the ever changing seasons. When John and I moved to this area we found the people to be friendly and down to earth. We can go fishing, hunting or hiking close by and we love it!

We celebrated our 19 wedding anniversary in your community this past weekend. We had a great time visiting with your local people, shopping in your stores, and eating some really good food.
We were very pleased to find that your local airport runway was newly resurfaced. This allowed us to fly directly into Tishomingo instead of landing in a nearby town and commuting in. We appreciate the value your community is putting into general aviation.
We hope that you are able to continue to implement improvements in your local airport. What will attract pilots is a good restaurant and a form of transportation to get there once landed. This most often is found in a courtesy car located at the airport for the pilot use.
You already have the good restaurants. We think we ate the best BBQ we have ever had at one location, and the homemade salsa at another was fantastic. I think you would be surprised at how much more your airport would be used if there was some type of transportation offered up landing. (A restroom would be great too!)
We would also like to say "thank you" to Donna Pope for her wonderful hospitality. Her accommodations and willingness to arrange transportation for us played an instrumental role in us choosing your community as our destination for the weekend.
We were bless with a perfect anniversary weekend. Thank you.
