Route 66 in Missouri
This motor court was built before the fifties, but it was in prime use during that special decade that I'm celebrating! Our stay felt pretty authentic, although it would have been a lot move fun had we been traveling in a '57 Chevy! Then we could have parked it in our own little carport, which came with our room!
I'm not sure how common TVs were in motels in the 1950's, but we didn't have one. Instead we enjoyed the evening listening to some tunes on a vintage radio. We didn't even mess with our cell phones or IPads. Instead we chatted and read and wondered about Clark Gable. Our host Donna claimed the movie star had stayed in our very room when he was in the service!
57 Celebrations of the Fifties!
April 9, 2014...My BYB!
I don't remember the 1950's, since they ended when I was 2. But since I turned 57 today and this is my BYB (Birth Year Birthday) I'm going to just appreciate the flavor of 1957! My goal is to celebrate in at least 57 simple ways throughout the year! I will dabble in the fashion, the foods, the music and the culture of those times...just for the fun of it!
