~Hum it, Sing it, Play it, get it stuck in your head…

“Take It Easy” by the Eagles

Well, I’m running down the road
tryin’ to loosen my load
I’ve got seven women on
my mind,
Four that wanna own me,
Two that wanna stone me,
One says she’s a friend of mine
Take It easy, take it easy
Don’t let the sound of your own wheels
drive you crazy
Lighten up while you still can
don’t even try to understand
Just find a place to make your stand
and take it easy
Well, I’m a standing on a corner
in Winslow, Arizona
and such a fine sight to see
It’s a girl, my Lord, in a flatbed
Ford slowin’ down to take a look at me
Come on, baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me
We may lose and we may win though
we will never be here again
so open up, I’m climbin’ in,
so take it easy
Well I’m running down the road trying to loosen
my load, got a world of trouble on my mind
lookin’ for a lover who won’t blow my
cover, she’s so hard to find
Take it easy, take it easy
don’t let the sound of your own
wheels make you crazy
come on baby, don’t say maybe
I gotta know if your sweet love is
gonna save me, oh oh oh
Oh we got it easy
We oughta take it easy

Tuesday afternoon we visited the Homolovi Ruins, the Visitor Center and drove to Town to eat a late lunch.  Main Street in Winslow is lined with cute shops and restaurants.

We selected the Relic Road Brewing Company to eat, because we thought it was a functioning brewery. The restaurant is new and the brewery will be opening in the future. It’s small dining area was welcoming with Routh 66 and old truck decor, the bar beautifully crafted out of wood. They are known for their hamburgers and homemade chips.

They had several brews on tap and the one we selected was brewed in Oak Ridge, near Sedona. The food and brew were very good! Our waitress was horrible. One other waitress in there was excellent. Couple of things we didn’t like:  TV’s hanging on the wall, thankfully muted, we never did figure what they were showing. And, the music playing was too loud. I guess we are just old like the song”Take It Easy”! HaHa

After eating we walked across the street to “stand on the corner”. We think if it wasn’t for this “famous” spot made so by the Eagle’s song, it wouldn’t be nearly as nice a downtown.

~Wednesday, October 18th…

We traveled 144 miles from Homolovi State Park to Trailer Village RV at the Grand Canyon today. We had a nice ride arriving around 12:30pm. More on what we enjoyed today later.

Because of our slow internet here, I will post my blog on the Homolovi Ruins tomorrow.

    1. Hi! Hope you enjoyed your time in Williams. Sorry it took awhile to answer. Our internet connection while at the Grand Canyon wasn’t
      good. I didn’t try the lodges, too busy having fun. Where are you heading now?

  2. Two nights at Blake Ranch RV park and Horse motel. Today we drive down to Black Meadow Landing to our winter home until March. Spotty internet here too.
    I’ll keep following!!
