SEGMENT 4--Lake Havasu, AZ to Winslow, AZ
In preparing for my journey, I found a website www.find.mapmuse.com/interest/diner-guy which locates the restaurants on Food Networks' show "Diners, Drive-in's, and Dives". In Flagstaff, along Route 66 we had lunch at Salsa Brava. Little Mexican Restaurant where I had Chimichanga Blanco and Grandpa had Cajun Shrimp Tacos. They also had a salsa bar.
Off to Meteor Crater near Winslow, AZ. Not really worth the $15 they charge to view the crater, but none the less it is a huge hole in the ground in an otherwise barren, flat landscape. Grandpa had never seen this crater before.
Stayed in a rest stop tonight.
Grandpas Joke Corner:
My Uncle Abner was a member of a church in Arkansas. The church was having a meeting to decide what to do with some extra money they had collected. Abner rarely attended church 'cause he was a bit of a rebel, but he decided to go to this special meeting to see what was up.
Some one in the congregation suggested they buy a chandelier for the church with the money. The room started buzzing in agreement.
Uncle Abner, being the rebel he was, stood up and said, " Now just wait a minute, I don't think we need a chandelier for the church. First of all half of this congregation doesn't even know what a chandelier is... and the other half can't even spell "chandelier". What we need in this church are some lights."
