News From Along Route 66-- April 2015

APRIL 10TH--  "The Blue Whale" film will be made at its namesake in Catoosa, Oklahoma.  (I've always liked that town name.)  It has a $600,000 budget and is directed by Johnathan Rossetti and regarded as a coming of age film.  Always good to get Rt. 66's name out there.

APRIL 16TH--  The historic Milk Bottle Building in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, will reopen as the Prairie Gothic boutique.  The building was constructed in 1930 and is just 350 square feet and triangular.  But what makes it neat is that 11-foot tall sheet metal milk bottle that was put on top of it in 1948.  It is quite the attention-getter.  Several different businesses have operated in it.

Always good to find new uses for old buildings, especially the really neat ones like this.

APRIL 19TH--  That woman, Molly Schulyer,  who was defending her record for eating steak at the Big Texan in Amarillo, Texas, downed three 72-ounce steak meals in 20 minutes.  I'm figuring that is a record which will stand for a long, long time.  Again, she bites and swallows without chewing.  That would gag me so fast it's make me cry.

You can see a video of her attacking the steaks on You Tube.  Just don't watch it directly after you have eaten.

Just Some Stuff on Route 66.  --
