Along 66, November 2017: Deaths

NOVEMBER 17--  Help is needed to decorate that wonderful old Devils Elbow Bridge in Missouri.  Get into the Christmas spirit and have some spirits at the nearby Elbow Inn.  I've seen pictures of it decorated and that sure says Christmas to me.

NOVEMBER 18--  RIP Marian Clark who wrote the Route 66 Cookbook.  She died at age 83 on Nov. 16.

NOVEMBER 21--  Dawn Patterson of D.K.'s Garage in Towanda died.  She turned her two-car garage into a Rt. 66ers nirvanna.  She was 59.  If it was open, everyone was welcome to stop in.  She closed it in May 2017.

We stopped by many times and really had good times during the Red Carpet Corridor weekend when she would have a band.  We'll sure miss Dawn.
