Pre-dawn Winslow is a wonderful time of day.

Morning air in Winslow is calm and clean, the trains are rumbling, coffee is hot, and people are visiting with “Easy”, Glenn, and the girl in the flatbed Ford.

Morning Blues with Tommy

Tommy Dukes sets up at the Arizona Trading Company around eight AM most days and jump starts the the corner with a few sets. Tourists’ love for him frequently results in spontaneous dance.

Living in Winslow

It’s been a few months in Winslow and I’m not sure life could be much better. We mess with stuff, hang out with friends, sit around, drink coffee, watch Lori’s feral cat “Babbitt”, and as always, we eat. The only things missing are our motorcycles, and a proper kitchen, that said, our motorcycles are in a top secret Southern California vault and our kitchen will have to wait.

Babbitt the feral cat, he’s cute and he likes Lori, eggs, cream, and ground beef.
