Today’s story will be a source of insight into how this whole virtual vintage video museum got started.…cuz back in 1950 it was Bone Daddy the boy and his God given talents….who was significantly influenced by the place and time that was Midland, TX in the heart of West Texas….which was affectionately known by the locals as “God’s Country”…..a place of vast lands and ranch barons with large herds of cattle which literally overnight became “Oil Country”….that’s right, we’re talking “black liquid gold”. It was in the early 50’s that the oil business found a solid hold out in West Texas. The way Bone Daddy and every other Midland local would answer the question about what a person did for a living was to say….”yep…he’s in the oil bidness”. I said all that to say this….Bone Daddy was heavily influenced by growing up as a boy in West Texas. West Texas really consisted of everything in the State of Texas that was west of Abilene…. south to Eagle Pass….east of El Paso….and north to include the Texas and Oklahoma panhandles….including the part of Oklahoma that is west of Norman. It is important for all ya’ll to understand that until the Texans let the boys from Oklahoma split away and become their own State….they were part of West Texas. The fact is that they always have and still do look like….smell like….act like…..think like….and taste alike West Texas. Today they are bitter rivals of the highest order….but the truth is….no two places in the whole of the USA are more alike than West Texas and western Oklahoma.
