We especially liked the cowboy boot look!
Another special guest today was Larry Kinsey from Kansas, completing his 31-day tour of the western states. He's a good Route 66 friend who stopped in last month at the beginning of his trip, and came today to deliver a report. He stayed a while and told us about all his enviable visits to national parks and other wilderness areas. Nice! Larry collects Indian flutes, showed us several he bought on this trip, and even played a little bit for us. I love that sound!
Later in the day we were visited by folks from Tulsa. The patriarch of this family group told me about a Packard dealership that used to be on Boulder Ave. I'd been wondering where the Tulsa Packard dealership was located, so this was an interesting piece of information. He also told me that his father had started a chain of restaurants in Tulsa in 1936 called White Knight Nickel Sandwich Shops.... and yes, the sandwiches were all really a nickel!
We finished the day with visits from a group from Ketchum, OK, then several very hot and uncomfortable motorcycle riders from Welch, OK who were eternally grateful for a few moments in our air conditioning! So much for another weekend in steamy Afton, Oklahoma
