Passing Time

The coach is in the service bay getting worked on and they have completed many of the items we had for them to repair, but still a little ways to go yet before they are complete. Yesterday we discovered that the front passenger tire had a big bulge in it, so added replacing the front tires to our list. It's day 2 of sitting around waiting for them to finish. Yesterday we took a 5 mile walk down into Miami and stopped at Walmart to pick up a few items.

Today we went for a 2 mile walk and found this vintage gas station turned into Dairy King in Commerce, which is just north of Miami. At lunch we walked back down there to enjoy a great cheeseburger, fries and a whole lot of local history from the owner. Of course, this place is right on old Route 66.

 Walking through downtown Commerce (a whole 5 blocks long) we found this big building the size of the whole city block that is a flea market.
 It was just rows and rows of junk (sorry - antiques). Yea there was a lot of junk, but there were some nice old pieces also. I think there was a little bit of everything in that place.
 Even an old wood burning stove.
Did you know that Mickey Mantle grew up in Commerce, OK? 

Hopefully they will finish up on the RV tomorrow so we can start heading back on Thursday. Yesterday the weather was beautiful in the low 80s with a bit of humidity. But today it's overcast, in the mid 80s and humid, so not so pleasant. It's calling for possible thunderstorms, but so far none. Maybe later today.
