Time flies, doesn't it?

Hard to believe, but my NEPHEW'S FIRST BIRTHDAY is less than a month away, mid NOVEMBER! Watching him grow is awesome; I try to spend as much time with him as possible.


It's also hard to believe I haven't been online for nearly 2 months, since before I left for my Route 66 road trip. A few days after I got home, I developed a virus infection (stomach flu) which requires fluids and rest, so unlike me, I've been in bed early every night since arriving home.

A lot is going on right now, too, and wanting to be "on the road" and the fall/winter seasons don't help much. Among other things, driving my older 4 Monte Carlos (1972, 1976, 1979, 1981) before the snow flies as much as possible when the weekend weather cooperates ... moving stuff out of my rooms ... deciding on a car for the winter (current choices = 2-tone maroon 1989 Caprice, white/tan 1994 Cadillac Eldorado, gold 1996 Furd Thunderbird, maroon/tan 2006 Lumina LTZ coupe) to keep my 1987 MC LS out of the winter weather this year.

But, I will visit and post when I can. I know I have a few Emails and notes on Facebook to answer ... as well as sharing about my Route 66 road trip, posting a newer version of the "Home State Sights To See" list, etc.



* ROUTE 66 *

As I finalized plans for this trip, I became a bit more apprehensive ... what if I missed the big things? What if I missed people along the way? I needn't have worried. The Route 66 trip I took September 5-16, 2009, was sssooo much more than I ever imagined ... and better than I anticipated. The places ... and more importantly, the people ... along the way are awesome! Route 66 is definitively alive and well (as is the Lincoln Highway).

I took HUNDREDS of pictures, which I WILL share once I take/have time to go through them and find a place to post them....

I started Route 66 in Pontiac IL and ended in Rialto CA (last night on Route 66 I stayed at the WigWam motel) ... and stopped at MANY places along the way in Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Arizona and California. I started and ended the trip with Lincoln Highway places (Franklin Grove IL and Kearney NE).
