Dateline : Yesterday  our driver was assigned a delivery for a lawyer who happened to have his office  on Foothill Blvd in Upland CA.. He mentioned that is the same road as Route 66. I got to thinking about the fact that my whole life I have lived on or near *The Mother Road*.This highway of dreams cuts a swath from Chicago to Santa Monica CA. When you think back there so many references in books, movies  and our lives. There even once was a TV show called “Route 66”.

Did you or your kids ever ride the Carrousel at the Santa Monica Pier?  Housed in the historic hippodrome rebuilt in 1990. This Carrousel was first built in 1909 and with a few hiccups is still in operation. It has been beautifully restored and It is delight to behold.
You can fish off of the pier. Lunch on the pier they have “Fair/ Carnival Food like great funnel cakes. Take a ride the rollercoaster. Perhaps best not in that order.
Memories of The Historic Route 66 is filled with adventures, fantasy and romance.
