Back in 1973 as we were traveling through this part of the country we were listening to Glenn Frey as lead vocalist of the Eagles on the radio singing Take it Easy about standing on the corner in Winslow, Arizona, lyrics he co-authored with Jackson Browne. A few years later civic leaders in Winslow decided to capitalize on their fame by creating a Standin’ on the Corner Park with a bronze statue of a guitarist, presumably Browne, and a mural of a girl in a flat bed Ford. Just four days ago they celebrated the installation of another bronze statue, Glenn Frey (1948-2016). We enjoyed being among the folks that come to town specifically to stand on the corner, to find a geocache, and to patronize the local businesses. What fun!
