During yesterday’s lazy day we had a look around the town getting ready for our road trip. We just happened to stumble across this well-known establishment while looking for the start of Route 66 with it’s world famous sign.
We eventually found the sign so we knew where to start from in the morning.
We done a spot of shopping while stocking up on some supplies, I got a couple of T-Shirts one of which speaks for itself. The other which I nearly bought says: “Rich girls break your heart – Poor girls take your money”.
We had a good rest overnight and started the day with a proper breakfast to keep us going. I couldn’t decide what to have, so I just had everything. Lynn on the other hand was much more sensible.
Chicago was also made famous by the quote in the classic movie – The Blues Brothers: “It’s 106 miles to Chicago, we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark… and we’re wearing sunglasses.” But as we are already here in Chicago we thought this might be a little more like it: “Springfield IL our next stop, our stomachs are full and we’re wearing our T-shirts”.
