    I recently learned that Route 66 has been decommissioned in part and superseded by more modern highways. When I mentioned this to my man (who has had a dream of driving the Route) his disappointment was tangible. There was certainly a wistful dream for many in this regard. Even though I doubt he (my man) would have ever driven the Route; it carried a dream of old world charm in its bosom, so to speak.
    Love the images, Catherine.
