INSIDE THE ROUTE 66 CASINO THIS MORNING
Well first and foremost I am pleased to say this post is coming to you from Open Live Writer:)) A big huge thanks to Dave over at Going RV Way for recommending a simpler fix he worked out after reading other fix explanations. And a big thanks to Kelly this afternoon for applying Dave’s fix to my blog.
LATE SATURDAY WE CHANGED SPOTS AT THE ROUTE 66 CASINO
THAT’S US UP THERE SOMEWHERE
With Saturday's uneventful cloudy day being basically a wash-out we were up and out the door into the Jeep Sunday morning. Wanted to double check Camping World's location for Monday morning. Camping World was right where I remembered it to be and not at the location Google Maps currently locates it. Much easier to check out in the Jeep today than the Motorhome first thing Monday. From our Route 66 Casino location its an easy 10 mile drive East along the service road on I-40's north side right to Camping World. We've been there a couple times over the years.

Back to the rig we decided to walk over to the Route 66 Casino for breakfast at the Main Street Restaurant inside. It was our second time inside this Casino with the last being a few years ago when we slipped inside for supper at the Thunder Road Restaurant. I know I've said this many times before but I am not a typical Casino gambling type person. I go in because I love seeing all the colored neon lights and décor.

THE LAST TIME WE SAW ‘GEORGE THOROGOOD AND THE DESTROYERS’ WAS IN TORONTO’S ‘MAPLE LEAF GARDENS’ WHEN THEY OPENED FOR ZZ TOP BACK IN ABOUT 1994
WONDER HOW MANY FAMOUS CELEBRITIES HAVE COME AND GONE VIA THIS REAR ENTRANCE BACKSTAGE
Since last time overnighting here at the Casino we noticed they have put in an RV Park. It’s walled and gated but Pheebs and I on a Sunday afternoon walk were able to grab a few photos.

No idea where we will end up Monday night and I guess it depends on how our blown hydraulic line to the slide problem fares out. Too make things worse we noticed a fluid leak down our outside rear dually tire on the Motorhome’s passenger side. No idea what this is and may have something to do with a large unseen pot hole I drove into Friday morning west of Flagstaff Arizona. The large pothole was located at the entrance to a Pilot/McDonald gas and food entrance. When the rear passenger side wheels dropped into the pot hole the rig rocked violently enough to smash both our morning porcelain coffee mugs. That pot hole drop may have damaged a brake lining or something. Don't know if Camping World will be able to fix that or if we'll have to go to a different garage in Albuquerque. It has been a stressful RV winter for us. 'RVing is not for the faint of heart' and don't let anyone tell you any different.
THEY HAVE THE CUTEST LITTLE ELECTRIC SHUTTLE BUSES FOR SHUTTLING PEOPLE AROUND
Ever since Open Live Writer packed it in over a month ago and I've been forced to use Blogger's clunky writing program (until today maybe) and with Picasa's photo editing program soon destined to bite the dust my blogging interest has been slowly but steadily waning. Blogging has simply not been as enjoyable as it once was and it has been an effort of late trying to maintain my interest in it. I'm hoping once we get home I can get my mind re-organized again. Need to deal with all this traveling stress. Basically at 74 years of age I feel I am long overdue for a major overhaul. It seems most every day is simply becoming more of a frustrating struggle.
GROANER'S CORNER:(( Nine year old Joey was asked by his mother what he had learned at Sunday school. "Well, Mom, our teacher told us how God sent Moses behind enemy lines on a rescue mission to lead the Israelites out of Egypt. "When he got to the Red Sea, he had his engineers build a pontoon bridge and all the people walked across safely. "Then he used his walkie-talkie to radio headquarters for reinforcements. They sent bombers to blow up the bridge and all the Israelites were saved." "Now, Joey, is that really what your teacher taught you?" his mother asked. "Well, no. But if I told it the way the teacher did, you'd never believe it!"
"Daddy, did you know that girls are smarter than boys?""No, I didn’t know that.""There you go."
