on Route 66

Dec 16 - Sometimes I try to picture myself back in the days of the Great Depression. The fields have all dried up, there's no water in the ol' swimmin' hole, and there ain't a durned thing left to do but go to California.

On the way, I reckon I might jest stop at a big city or two, just to sees it fur m'self, or maybe some o' the attractions along the way, like Meramec Caverns or the Blue Whale. But we all know what the families were really looking forward to...

That's right, cowpokes! The Largest McDonalds in the Free World!

Now enter the ding dang contest!
