And totally O/T but of course you knew Oklahoma is where the wind comes sweepin' down the plain... the wavin' wheat can sure smell sweet when the wind comes right behind the rain!
And Oklahoma... every night, my honey lamb and I
sit alone and talk and watch a hawk
makin' lazy circles in the sky!
Just tell me where the Jamison's are.
We're hard upon the first anniversary of the Jamisons having last been reported seen (08 October 2009), and nowhere notably nearer a solution to the mystery.
Anniversary-wise, state-wide, the Daily Oklahoman (a.k.a. the Daily Disppointment; newsok.com) will run something, and the Tulsa World might. Prepare to be underwhelmed; the Oklahoman won't top its last effort, though it's debatable whether that "batty people" article helped matters at all.
Deer season for archers started October 1st; for muzzleloaders, it's October 23-31st; for guns, it will be November 20-December 5th.
Gimme some proof of the dog and the dog's condition at the time, is all I'm saying.
Do we know that the Jamisons spray painted the old truck? When was the painting on the truck first noticed? I thought it had been painted for a long time before this happened. I guess I'm thinking why would someone paint up a truck if they were trying to get out of Dodge? Why would they have been spotted up there two days in a row if they were trying to skip out?
"Graffiti on a massive storage container outside their home also prompted questions. One message reads: "3 cats killed to date buy people in this area … Witches don’t like there black cat killed.” Beauchamp said the family planned to live in the container once they acquired mountain property."
If we accept the Oklahoman version of events prior to their disappearing, I'd say that logic was not a prime factor in subsequent actions the Jamisons may have taken.
Thanks, I must have missed that article. I agree there is no logic in this whole case.
All this time talking about the spray paint and messages, I was thinking it was on the old wrecked truck up on the mountain, not on a container at their home.
Did anyone date the paint? I'm not sure, but.... don't think so. Not sure there is a way to do that at this point.
But I'm off to look into it!
I meant to call today and check into animal laws because the interent was turning up very little except they will take your dog if it isnt secure to you property .
This guy might be able to find out who handles those issues in oklahoma and what the proper method of giving ones dog away to someone else might be.

I'm with you on the 'bad-idea-to-use-a knife-to-open-a bag-of-chips'. Opening any kind of plastic packaging with a knife seems like it never ends well.
But let's say the bag was already open, and partially eaten. And then whatever human was eating from this bag didn't have one of those clip-y things to tighten it up with- you'd just roll the top up, right? I would. So no scent isolation there, or even the need for a dogs' better nose.
If you were a very, very, very hungry dog...would you be able to resist an open bag of food?
Maybe this dog is smell-challenged? (Not trying to be funny, there. Seriously thinking about that now.)
And sillybilly: I did test this theory on my own. Didn't fly, and chips were eaten LOL. Please let me know how your test run goes.

If the chips were open and the dog didn't have a go at them, then the dog had not been in the truck for any length of time (CONJECTURE!).
My dog is ignoring my own experiment to see if he'll attempt to open a dollar store bag of chips; currently sleeping in sunshine instead. Perhaps miffed at inexpensive nature of chips in experiment.
I'm thinking, before a week or so is up anyway.
(BTW: that is an excellent idea for a headstone. I'm just gonna have mine say "Fig Newton."
People can make what they will of it.)
<If the chips were open and the dog didn't have a go at them, then the dog had not been in the truck for any length of time (CONJECTURE!).>
Or the chips had not been in the truck for any length of time.
One or the other- but not both, IMO.
(And just for the record- 'chips' is now short for "anyopencontaineroffoodinanenclosedvehiclewithahun grydoginside" )
