O is for… OHIO

Ohio is a state in the Midwest.
Or, it used be called the Midwest Territory.
I noticed weather maps include Ohio in “Mid” zones,
Or was that “Central” United States?

I think Illinois is Central, as in Central Time.
Ohio is in part of Eastern Standard Time.
Okay, so I don’t know where it is.
I just live here.

Ohio is the friendly state,
Drop the O’s… hi, hello!
The terrain rolls with hills,
Just like the word rolls, O hi O.

Common misperception:
People in Ohio all think alike.
Tell you true, that is so not true.
I have four sisters and we rarely agree.

Maybe that is why the vote in Ohio
Usually predicts Presidential elections.
We are an eclectic mix, a diverse population.
From Cleveland Yuppies to Ohio River Rats.

Well, no art today.
Thought I’d do something different.
Share a YouTube video of my all time favorite band.
The song? What else… OHIO.


I could not find an “Ohio” video that did not have the “must watch on YouTube” restriction.  I assume the reason why is the advertisement, which by the way, is very short.

I graduated from KSU but years later.  In 1970, I was 10 years old… that was the year we moved from Colorado Springs to Seagraves, Texas.

  1. Love that song! Great, if shocking, photos–but shocked is what we should be at how protesters get treated. Thanks for the visit over at Life In Dogs !

    • Yes, so agree. I bookmarked your blog so I can wander back and stay awhile after the holiday as I so enjoyed the read.

  2. Ohio sounds like a nice state to live in. I didn’t know about the 4 May massacre, have read about it now. Always shocking when protests end up like this. Also in Europe there were lots of protests against the Vietnam war.
