 Hello, let me introduce myself. My name is Eldon T. Bixby. I am 115 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 brought my great grandchildren Ellie and Elliot with me  this year to spend our holidays with you. I invite each of you to come with us as we travel through downtown Bixby! Each day I will post a clue of where we will be visiting in Bixby. Keep checking  and follow us as we travel through Bixby.

Hello Everyone we are in Bixby now and I hope you have picked up one of our Travel Logs. They are in several of the businesses or you can get one here. Just download that and print it. To help everyone out I have decided to give the clues to the places we are visiting and then I told the Historical Society to give the answers.
