More Kicks on Rt 66

The Mother Road in Arizona turned many dreams into reality. I started thinking about what I might see last year when I created tags of each state on Route 66.
The car I drove from Flagstaff to Willliams maneuvered easily through gusts of 45 to 60 mph and snow flurries!  Not the picture I had envisioned of this road trip but...alas, take it or leave it.  I took it!

Williams, Arizona is  the sweetest spot for sentimental 1950s kitch.  The town boasts plenty of road signs, car memorbilia and perfect places for photos.

Fill 'er up?  How many of you remember the slogan, "You can trust your car to the man who wears the star"?  The Big Bright Texaco Star!  I'm one of the few girls who wouldn't mind having a gas pump like this next to my driveway!
Peddle cars, real cars, I love em all!
Lots of happy memories on this fabulous highway, some of them are mine...


  1. Looks like a great trip!!! Love your tag!!! You are one creative gal!!! chris

  2. Love your pics and tag. Our order from AAA came last night of maps and state tour guides. We're getting excited to plot our trip out West this summer. Keep sharing the magic!

  3. Oh, great post! What an adorable tag. Williams AZ is on my bucket list. Have I somehow missed following you? Not anymore. :) Pam

  4. I remember that saying too! The tags are too cool

  5. Oh, man! If I had known about that cool gas station diner I would have made George stop in Williams for dinner on our way back to Vegas. We ended up driving up and down the main roads of Kingman looking for a decent place to eat. We ended up at Golden Corral...I hate GC! But my annoying BIL was in "Hog Heaven" at the Barf-et...I mean buffet...lol! That morning we had stopped at Cracker Barrel...which I love...but Harold...the big baby that he is...kept chanting "IHOP, IHOP, IHOP!" over and over. IHOP was next door, so George told him to head on over to the IHOP by himself...cuz we were eating at CB. He ambled a ways in that direction...then turned around and came back when no one begged him to stay. Don't you just love trips with family members? It was fun...for the most part!

  6. What a great trip! Seeing your old teacher, Sandy and Meri! Delightful! New memories to remember when we get "old".

  7. Those gas pumps are so neat and would be fun to have!! Have a great day Tammy! xo Heather

  8. How fun of you to create those tags! :) Love the old gas pumps!! :) xo Holly

  9. I love the tag! I took a Route 66 trip from Chicago to Arizona. It was such fun and I loved seeing the things in books in real life!

  10. Okay, now you're makin me wanna go to Williams......I haven't been there in years. See it takes an out of towner to make me appreciate my own state.
