 Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Eldon T. Bixby. I am 114 years young and arrived by train on a cold December day. I was named for Tams Bixby, my godfather. Tams handed down a magic candy cane for me to watch over the town and its citizens. I have been to war with my   brothers and sisters and have shucked corn by my family’s side and even raised a barn or two. For the past several years I have been on an adventure of a lifetime touring our great state of Oklahoma and the Country. I had so much fun visiting everyone last year, I jumped for joy when the Bixby Historical Society asked me to spend my holidays again with you. I invite each of you to come with me as I travel through downtown Bixby! Each day I will post a clue of where I will be visiting in Bixby. Keep checking  and follow me as I travel through Bixby.

Hello Everyone I am in Bixby now and I hope you have picked up one of my Travel Logs. They are in several of the businesses of you can get one here. Just download that and print it.
