Historic highway Route 66 runs from Chicago to Santa Monica. Though it was developed from trails used by pioneers and settlers in the California Gold Rush, the route wasn't officially commissioned until 1926. Major cities on the famed route are St. Louis, Oklahoma City, Tulsa, Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Flagstaff. It was originally 2448 miles long.
young 66, you understand. We aren't dwelling on numbers...much. But I do have to admit, we're both seen a lot of hard miles. As a single mother of three, working to keep them in stylish sneakers and the brand of jeans of the day, plus put them through college, I often worked two jobs. Twelve hour days were light workdays. Yeah, these size 9's have seen a lot of long, hard road. But the journey was full of beautiful sights and happy memories.
Here's a pic taken in '86. Any was a freshman in college, Steve, a junior in high school and Mike, a 9th grader. It's an old pic and I have no clue what that mark is near Mike's face. Amy was a cheerleader until she switched to Band Front and became the captain. Steve was into theater, school choir, a rock group called Shrapnel and karate. Mike was into football and wrestling. I was the taxi driver.
Diners along Route 66 have served a lot of burgers and french fries. So have I. Heavy on the mayo, hold the lettuce and PLEASE no onions for Amy.
