February? Oh, you'll love the walk to the ruins. Just be sure you got your hooded sweatshirt.


Yeah well I know that song, but let me tell you Winslow today is one seriously depressed-looking donkey stop.

and such a fine sight to see
It's a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin' down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don't say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
we will never be here again
so open up, I'm climbin' in,
so take it easy...

And there was a popular TV show called Route 66 back in the (?) early 60's? ...I vaguely remember a convertible, Kookie, and, ...two other guys. Route 66 was named "The Mother Road by John Steinbeck in his 1939 novel, The Grapes of Wrath, and the rest is...history, since I-40 was built and zoomed past it. Never read the book but I saw the movie (on TV of course). We drove home from California in 1952 on it. I pleaded with him on that trip to stop at the Painted Desert and to let us pick up some petrified wood but he only gave it 5 minutes.

Kookie ("Lend me your comb") was on Sunset Strip; he was played by Edd Byrnes. Oh my, that's going back a ways...

And... it's really pathetic when some of us know all the words to the lyrics! (Don't ask me to sing)

Route 66 ran from 1960 to 1964 starred Martin Milner and George Maharis with Glenn Corbett replacing Maharis in 1964. I remembered the series IMDb did the rest.

Kookie, Kookie, lend me your comb. Oh my, are we old. That was Edd Byrnes and Connie Stevens, now 82 and 77.
77 Sunset Strip.

Zimbalist died in 2014 at 95. He was the most sauve thing going back then.

When I was a kid, we lived outside of Grants Pass, OR along the Rogue River. The opening credit film showed our home every week....
