Mike the Headless Chicken

Hanging out in Fruita, CO today doing the mandated 34 hour break.  Took a walk around town and spotted a neat old hooptie.



Lorren, the owner of this fine specimen of automotive art was in the yard, so we chatted.  It’s a 1958 Olds Fiesta Wagon.  I’m digging the West Coast mirrors.


Lorren also told me about another of Fruita’s claims to fame, Mike the headless chicken.  Interesting.

Got hungry and went to the local brew pub for lunch.  Calamari and Redneck Nachos (home made potato chips with bleu cheese and bacon.)  Chatted a bit with Tim, the General Manager of the Fruita Times.   Then it was off to check out the park and the Colorado river, which runs next to Colorado National Monument.  Pretty.  Off to Loveland tomorrow to make this delivery, then who knows where.
