One of my favorite things

Here is one of the most cherished sights of many Route 66 travelers — the neon of the Blue Swallow Motel sign in Tucumcari, N.M.

The sign was recently repaired after being damaged by a severe hailstorm this spring. As you can see, save for a slightly balky transformer in the “Motel” letters, it’s looking pretty great.

    My wife and I sat out there for several hours watching that blue swallow move. You could also see the Tee Pee sign and could imagine the ghosts of 66 moving along the road.
