My breakfast mates at the Sun & Sand Restaurant on Route 66 in Santa Rosa. Bill helped me with directions drawing a map on a table napkin. The other fellas told stories of farming alfalfa, fixing trucks and Billy the Kid.
“Every business that wants to make a buck was visited by Billy the Kid,” said Bill.
He was visited by one of his 35 grand kids. “This pretty girl is Miss Shelby,” he said “I also have great grandkids,” he clarified.
The waitress brought my scrambled eggs with green chili. “You eating with them,” she asked.
I looked at Bill for approval. He nodded and said, “Bring another spoon.”
