From a summer romance that started at an Iowa cabin built by John McKean, his dad and brother to Broken Bow Oklahoma’s Old Glory, John & Judy McKean have created a life together for more than 50 years.
Anything worth having is worth sharing, and J&J’s story is no exception. Whether it’s impeccable client services here or at their boat dealership on Cedar Creek, Texas, their admiration of wildlife and nature, or John’s random acts of kindness, this couple has touched oh-so-many lives.
You might notice their dedication to wildlife through Old Glory’s nature-inspired amenities. And, although, sometimes human clients are a little harder to please, J&J do everything they can to make sure their Oklahoma and Texas patrons feel as loved and appreciated as the stray dogs, cats, ducks (and any other abandoned/injured critters) they take in. If you’re dining nearby, don’t be surprised if the waitress delivers your bill as already paid. You see, doing things for others, wanting nothing in return, is John’s favorite pastime.
Perfect? Nope! And they’d never claim to be. Sometimes John’s jokes and pranks get a little out of control and not even Judy can reign him back in. If you read through the comments left by guests of Old Glory, you’ll note that the dishwasher doesn’t always work or the mattress occasionally squeaks (now whose fault is that?).
However, whether your stay involves rainy or perfect weather, hand-washing a few dishes or is perfectly divine, John and Judy’s wish is that you’ve enjoyed your time (and your wine) at Old Glory.
