Among other daily-weekly themes is this for my Route 66-based story, posting it chapter by chapter:
[i drove Route 66, September 2009.  I road tripped at least once a year 2002-2011 to meet people & see family-friends.]

A chapter of my Route 66-based story posted Sunday.  This, from Saturday, could be a scene from that story, with the caption something like:
“Um, sir, you know the train don’t come through here anymore, right!?”
Speaking of Route 66, which would you rather drive along it: 1957 Chevy or 1967 Pontiac?
Anyone like Andrew Llloyd Weber tunes?
