Mother's Day in Gate, Oklahoma

Driving east from Liberal, KS, we stopped in front of an out-of-business gas station in a small town in Oklahoma to stretch our legs and walk the dogs. As I stepped out of the door, I found myself staring at a cowboy
painted on the old garage door.  The dogs and I walked up the street a bit, and found ourselves at the Gate, OK town park.
It appeared that almost every building in town had been painted with murals.  I walked back to the motor home and got Dinah so she could also admire the art work.
Across the street was Lauries Cafe, and we decided to go there for lunch.  It turned out, according to a couple that we sat with for lunch, that Lauries was the only restaurant worth its salt within a 30 mile radius.  The restaurant was bustling with families celebrating Mothers Day.  The food was good, and the people friendly.
In the course of dinner conversation, the couple we sat with recommended Fort Supply Lake Corps of Engineers Park.  We liked the idea, and changed our destination.  So after a nice Mother's Day lunch we were off to Fort Supply, OK.
