APRIL 25, MONDAY
** While at Rich Henry's I bought a CD of Mother Road Songs by the Road Crew. I've heard of them often, but never had one of their CDs. Great Route 66 music and listened to it the rest of toady and much of Tuesday on our way home.
** Drove through Mt. Olive and by Soulsby Station and the Miners' Cemetery where Mother Jones is buried.
** We continued on 66 to Litchfield and past the Ariston and new museum. After the fried chicken, tacos and cookies, we weren't hungry and did not stop at Jack's for more tacos. But, we glanced longingly as we drove by.
** Back on I-55 to Springfield and got a room again at the Route 66 Hotel and Convention Center. We plan on coming back for several days this summer.
