Ardmore is a great place and I know I'm from Oklahoma


HomeSnacks User

I understand. I live in Ardmore. I'm a single mom. I have a vocational certificate and some collage education. I grew up in Tennessee and when you say that to people they look down at your feet. They say you mean you actually wear shoes there. I reply yes with a smile on my face.

Every city, no matter how big or small, has educated and uneducated citizens and crime. It's just life. I enjoy living here on the outskirts of Ardmore. It's a beautiful city with much to offer.
