On The Bricks

December 19, 2022

Tom and Judy Love built gas stations in Oklahoma. The Love’s businesses are 50 years old now and they recently posted the picture above and the following words on the Love’s Country Stores page, “After eight years of building business based on the cheapest gas in town, Tom and Judy Love were ready for their next challenge. In 1972, Love’s opened its very first Mini Stop ‘Country Store’ in Guymon, OK. This revolutionary store combined a convenience store with self-service gasoline, which was a new concept at the time.”

That store sat on the corner of 12th and Main and today is Dizzy B’s. It is known for being one of the top selling lottery ticket stores in Oklahoma. The owners, Jennifer and Lowell Williams, and their crew make some of the best homemade quick lunches in town.

Just a little Guymon history shared today.

Here’s a little life lesson to share today: The best time to make friends is before you need them.

Here’s a quote by E.A. Bucchianeri that shares some wisdom for today: “An acquaintance merely enjoys your company, a fair – weather companion flatters when all is well, a true friend has your best interests at heart and the pluck to tell you what you need to hear.”

Here’s an important reminder from Brandon Mull shared today: “Want a reliable road to emotional and spiritual suicide? Spend your life trying to fit in.”

And here’s the most important thing to remember today: Merry Christmas. Remember the reason for the season is Jesus. And Jesus is love, forgiveness, and understanding. You are loved.

There is a Christmas Morning Candlelight Service at 10:30 am at Victory Center Church, 6th and Quinn. If you don’t have a church home and would like to baske in the Christmas spirit, this is a good place to try.

The Community Christmas Dinner is held at the Methodist Enrichment Center from 11:30-1 pm for all who would like to attend. Bring your family or just yourself and share the holiday with other families.

See you on the bricks.
