No Crybabies Allowed: The Past as Told by Me - Autographed Paperback Book by Dr. Terri Ryburn - $19.99 plus tax.
No Crybabies
                      Allowed Book

“Daddy had ‘itchy feet’ and couldn't stay in one place for very long. Over and over again, he said to Momma, ‘Hazel, git the kids ready. We're movin'.’ Momma cried, but by the time we piled into the back of the truck and Daddy backed out of the driveway, Momma’s tears had dried and her jaw was set in a familiar, unforgiving line.” This story collection, told from a child’s perspective, ranges from hilarious to poignant, as Terri encounters bullies, suffers from unrequited love, puzzles over religion, abandons plans to run away from home, and upholds family honor, while shedding the “crybaby” moniker. Terri shares vivid memories of growing up in the 1950s, as her large family moved from Illinois to California, to Kentucky, to Oregon. The family lived in a tent, a tarpaper shack, chicken brooders, and a smokehouse because of her father’s "need" to move. Terri was “the new kid” at seven grade schools (including three third grades, where she never learned her times tables!) and two high schools. If you’ve ever said, “We were poor but we didn’t know it,” you were never really poor. Terri knew that she was poor but as her Aunt Mary Agnes said, “We come up poor but we come up proud.” No one could have foreseen that Terri would transcend the poverty of her early life to earn a doctorate in history, to retire from a university as an administrator and instructor, and to own a small business.

Route 66 in Illinois - published in 2014, Arcadia Publishing, 218 pages, by Joe Sonderman and Cheryl Eichar Jett. "Between the great cities of Chicago and St. Louis, there are 300 miles of adventure, history, culinary delights, and quirky attractions. This is the "Land of Lincoln" and roadside giants. There are cozy motels, cozy diners, and Cozy Dogs. Interstate 55 will speed travelers to their destination, but Route 66 offers something more. It goes through the hearts of the towns, wandering onto old brick pavement far from the roar of the interstate. Historic restaurants like Lou Mitchell's in Chicago, the Palms Grill in Atlanta, and the Ariston Cafe in Litchfield still keep their coffee pots warm. Waitresses, pump jockeys, gangsters, cops, and politicians all gave the "Main Street of America" its distinctive personality, and their stories are within these pages. So slow down, take the next exit, and head toward the beckoning neon in the distance. Come explore Route 66 in Illinois -- where the road began."

Route 66 in Springfield (IL) - published in 2010, Arcadia Publishing, 218 pages, by Cheryl Eichar Jett. "On its three different alignments through the capital city of Springfield, Route 66 took motorists around the Illinois State Fairgrounds, past the state capitol, and through Abraham Lincoln's neighborhood. Mom-and-pop motels, gas stations, and eateries opened along the highway and became familiar landmarks to travelers in the "Land of Lincoln." In Springfield, the "horseshoe" and the "cozy dog" became popular local foods, and one of the first drive-up window restaurants opened. A man spent 40 years on Route 66 operating his gas station before transforming it into an internationally known museum. Meet the proprietors of these businesses, witness the growth of the highway, and enjoy a generous dose of nostalgia."

Route 66 in Madison County - published in 2010, Arcadia Publishing, 128 pages, by Cheryl Eichar Jett. "Route 66 zigzagged southwest across Madison County, Illinois, before crossing the Mississippi River into Missouri. Various alignments of this segment of the "Mother Road" rolled through pastoral farmland, headed down main streets, and later straightened as it bypassed towns. From 1926 to 1977, the path of the highway changed numerous times and crossed the Mississippi River on no less than five different bridges. Along the way motorists watched for the blue neon cross on St. Paul's Lutheran Church to guide their nighttime travel; they counted on the doors of the Tourist Haven, Cathcart's, or the Luna Café to be open for business. Travelers crossed their fingers that they wouldn't get stuck at the bend of the Chain of Rocks Bridge and hoped they could make it up Mooney Hill in the winter. A later alignment took motorists right by Fairmount Park and Monks Mound."

Route 66 in Kansas - published in 2016, Arcadia Publishing, 234 pages, by Joe Sonderman and Cheryl Eichar Jett. There are only 13.2 miles of Route 66 in Kansas, but the Sunflower State packs in as much history and adventure per mile as any of the eight Route 66 states. Route 66 in Kansas includes the wild tales from the days of "Red Hot Street" and the "First Cowtown in Texas." Blood was spilled here during the Civil War and when workers in the mines fought for their rights. Travelers will meet a beloved character from the motion picture Cars, cross a rare Rainbow Bridge, and see classic scenes along the Main Streets. Kansas was completely bypassed and was not even mentioned in the Bobby Troup song "(Get Your Kicks) on Route 66," but it would be a major mistake to pass it by today. It deserves to be experienced slowly--with the top down and the radio up.
