Fun Friday by danette

Fun Friday

For those of us at a certain age, we are familiar with the song by the Eagles, "Take It Easy". One line of the lyrics talks about "standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona", which is exactly where this photo was taken! Winslow has done a great job attracting tourists based on this song from 1972! While we were there, many people came to take their photos by the statues of Jackson Browne and Glenn Frey, or by the red pickup truck. It was great fun. While I don't know anyone who went prior to me (as it is very far from Florida), I have had 3 friends go there since (all from Florida!).
As soon as I saw “Winslow★Arizona” on the building, I immediately thought of the song. I guess I'm of that “certain age” ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I see the girl in the flatbed ford slowing down to take a look… I’ve been there three or four times now… always a fun spot to stop.

A great image for an iconic song and an iconic highway. I'm also thinking of the TV series Route 66 which pre-dated the Eagles song, and the theme song from that series, 'Get Your Kicks, On Route 66'. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Route_66_(TV_series)

@gardencat I know the show, but didn't watch it. I have always known the draw of US 66, but have not paid a lot of attention since I live so far away. I always thought it would be fun to drive a portion of it. Just joined a FB group dedicated to it.
