Patti and I are in Kingman (upper right red balloon ), Arizona.
In a few hours Patti and I are going to drive from Kingman over to Oatman, Arizona, to meet Detroit Tiger Tom and Ginny who are coming from Laughlin, Nevada, for a nice visit.
Oatman, Arizona, and its famous burros.
Last night, Patti and I ate dinner at Rutherford’s, a relatively famous, Route 66 theme, restaurant here in Kingman.
Historic US Route 66 passes by Rutherford’s (you can see it on the extreme left below).
Notice if you will, the mention of Oatman in the above photo mural.
Rutherford’s is a 1950’s theme diner.
We enjoyed our dinner. I had a tuna sandwich and Patti had a Greek Omelette with toast and country fried potatoes.
When we finished our dinner night had fallen.
HOW CAN THIS BE? ..
WHAT IS .. IS!
As the two of us drove away from Rutherford’s and headed back to our motel, I, wearing a sweatshirt, was feeling very cold. I asked Patti if she was cold and if she wanted me to turn on the heater in our truck. Patti said that yes she did and that some heat would feel really good to her.
So I turned on our truck heater and we both felt much better.
You have to understand, at night the desert cools down and while in Rutherford’s, the temperature had plunged down into the 50’s and we were so ‘freezing cold’ that each of us really needed some heat!
Last week we saw 101 F. Now with temperatures in the 50’s or lower at night we are c-c-c-cold.
IMPOSSIBLE! .. HOW CAN THIS BE? .. WELL! .. WHAT IS .. IS!

Why? Why are you in Kingman, and why are you staying 8 nights? That’s more than enough time for moss to grow on you rolling stones.
We are in Kingman because we wanted to be in cooler weather (watch what you pray for huh?). We are in Kingman because our pleasant, two-queen-bed, motel room cost is in the $35 price range. And night-after-night in Phoenix we were in the $70 or higher price range.
A very pleasant and large room at 50% or less than we were paying in Phoenix.
