Enid, Oklahoma

I was born today in Enid, Oklahoma where my Dad was stationed in the Air Force at Vance Air Base.  Vance was and continues to be a cadet pilot training facility.

I spent my first six months on the planet in Enid before we were transferred to Roswell, New Mexico.  Enid's biggest claim to fame is not that it is my birthplace but that it appears quite frequently in crossword puzzles as a 4 letter answer.  Apparently, there are no other words that Enid can be used as a clue/answer to crossword puzzles.
Toby Keith was born in Clinton, Oklahoma only a few miles down the road from Enid.  Leave it to Toby to pull off a 4 minute Ford Truck commercial and make it funny and entertaining while weaving in the titles of several of his hit songs.
