Along 66, December 2017: Virden Mural, "The Elvis of France" and Onion Burgers

DECEMBER 5--  Virden, Illinois, mural deemed irreparable and will be wholly repainted instead of touch up.  It will be repainted from scratch and with a new design.

Love those murals.

DECEMBER 6--  Johnny Hallyday, "the Elvis of France" and a big Route 66 fan died at age 77.  I never heard any of his songs.

DECEMBER  9--  50 Years of Making Fried Onion Burgers.  Monty Hall of El Reno, Oklahoma has been making them for that long.  First at Johnnie's Grill and then at Sid's Diner, which he has owned since 1989.

One of those great foods you can find on 66.
