Mural on Motel Safari, Tucumcari, N.M.

The Motel Safari in Tucumcari, N.M., has added another mural image, courtesy of local artist Doug Quarles. It’s a 1953 Flxible Clipper bus.

Motel owner Richard Talley also passed along this news:

On another note, we just had our first celebrity guest check-in! No, it wasn’t Sir Paul!!! During the annual Rattler Reunion weekend, a week ago, we had country singer sensation Rick Trevino nd his posse stay with us while performing a concert in town. They had a great time at the Motel Safari, and said they would return again soon. I happened to be out of town last week, for a family reunion, so I completely missed out on Sir Paul’s arrival!
