Standin’ on the Corner in Winslow, Arizona
For many baby boomers, just a mention of the town of Winslow, Arizona will trigger a line from the Eagles 1972 hit, Take it Easy.
Spontaneously, you’ll hear them sing “Well, I’m a standin’ on a corner in Winslow, Arizona. Such a fine sight to see. It’s a girl my Lord in a flat-bed Ford. Slowin’ down to take a look at me”.
Here’s Carol, with friends Bob and Karen Schroeder, standing in the Standin’ in the Corner Park in Winslow, Arizona. You can see the reflection of the girl in the flat-bed Ford in the window, as our gang poses for the photograph.
If you find yourself driving down Route 66, make sure you stop on this corner in Winslow, Arizona. It’s such a fine site to see!
