Among other daily-weekly themes is this for my Route 66-based story, posting it chapter by chapter:

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?
