APRIL 23, 2016.
** We've spent the last two days driving around in the '11 Malibu listening to a double CD set of the Lovin' Spoonful which I bought at the Dixie Truck Stop. It has all the songs, plus bonus tracks from two of their albums. Lots of songs I've never heard before. These guys could blues it or folk it with the best of them.
** Our next door neighbors at M-M were Roamin' Rich and family. All five kids with the oldest at about five and youngest a pair of 5-month old twins. I'd never heard of him before, but he is one young gung-ho Route 66er with a website hookedonroute66.com.
** We're here to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Bob and Ramona buying the Munger-Moss back in 1971, the 70th anniversary of the Munger-Moss, and, of course, the 90th birthday of Route 66.
** Bought a huge (and reasonably priced) bag of kettle corn from the wife of the guy at Orchard Hills Package Store and settled down for some great music and lots of good friends.
** The U.S. 66 Band played and did Jess McEntire from the late afternoon hours to the night time hours. I bought my copy of his Man on a Mission CD at the Munger-Moss Motel about four years ago.
