June 10th, 2012 (Happy Anniversary Jill and Paul Varisco!)
Fort Worth to Route 66, Tucumcari
(for the record, no disrespect for Fort Worth.. It’s a great city, we just hit a shady spot)
First night of sleep kind of rough for Rivers.
He took his first hotel bath today.
And had one of his daily rides with his dad.
First stop – Fort Worth Stock Yards — to cross this out in our “1000 things to see before you die book”. (For the record, we got this book in 2008 pre-diagnosis:)
Lunch at Taco Casa.
No shortage of cheese at this fine establishment.
Can guarantee stomach aches in about 2 hours.
Stopped at a local Target (Rivers first buggy ride)
to get a bunch of these
Which are good for both Steve and Rivers.
Ended up tonight on Route 66 (another spot in our book). Warm and dry wind. Perfect.
Steve shot a 300 seconds
and we ate at the one place in the area that was open and not deserted, Pow Wow Restaurant.
Picked the Budget Inn because of location and advertisement of “wifi and HBO”, of which it had neither. We were definitely excited in a nervous way, looked like a site for a scary movie..
and the check in girl added to the unease. Seemed like a nice girl but up close looked like she was in The Thriller video.
Luckily for all of us, she did not end up in Blair’s room…
