The Way to (or through) Amarillo

Turns out it is none other than Steinbeck's "Mother Road" - Historic Route 66.

How could I not have realized this before today? In any event, 'twas lovely contemplating a classic road trip today from Halifax through to Boston to New York to Philly to Washington to Columbus to Indy to St Louis and on down the Main Street of America for the coast.
"Just beyond the city
There's an open plain
And it keeps me going
Through the wind and rain..."

oh Amarillo! Who knows - maybe we'll yet get there, some Texas Sunday morning, before 2006 is through. And find a sweet Marie who waits for us.

To live is to dream.
