  2. Gee this brings back fond memories for me. Some day I hope to follow that old Route 66 highway that I've heard some towns have brought many of the old forgotten places back to life!

  3. really paint the setting nicely here. Scuttlebutt is a perfect word for a short verse, really adds much more to the piece than being but one word of the short verse. Really nicely done. Thanks

  11. Scuttlebutt - a different menu every day; plenty of material for a poet to get to work with. That sure sounds like my kind of place :-)
