Route 66 is alive and well!

 
This is Bernie, the mascot of the Dodgers' single A farm team, the Inland Empire 66-ers! They're based in San Bernardino, and while I don't really know what Bernie is, he gets his name from San "Bernie" dino.
 
I just thought it was kind of cool that Route 66 is still a presence here, although the original roadway is mostly gone in California. The 66-ers logo is a Route 66 shield! I also noticed, while reading the paper today that Route 66 was mentioned in an article about a community of homes, right on historic Route 66.
 
This afternoon, Dillon (that is the correct spelling) has been working on one of Ros's computers, and things got a little wonky with the wireless. Dillon, Ken, and I have been trying to get everything up and running (only minor assistance from me), and Ken just brought the laptop out here to me on the patio and asked me to try it out. It all looks good! Actually better, since before I had to be hardwired and couldn't use the wireless.
 
Wow, looks like we're up to 96 out here. Ouch!

Of course, I am totally flummoxed because I don't know what Bernie is either except probably really hot in that outfit!--Sheria
