Mostly pictures

It was a busy day at Afton Station today (How many times have I said that lately?). Well, it really was. So, this recap will rely heavily on photos I took during the day.

Guests included a Tulsa, OK family of five (three generations). The little kids loved the pressed penny machine......

...then, four guys from Denmark on motorcycles..... ...followed by a guy from Gravell, AR who had some neat stories about growing up in the countryside outside of Afton..... a couple from Kansas City, MO.... two guys from Miami, OK..... a couple from Kilgore, TX who were tired on the 16th day of their Route 66 trip... and then our friend Jane Dippel from St. Louis MO, a veteran Route 66 traveler, a friend to ALL along the Route, and a very, very fun person.....

...then, two brothers from the Netherlands......
...and finally, adorable Rascal the Dog (and his parents) from Ponca City, OK.
To that mix, please add Ron M. and Betty, who kept me happy and occupied all day. Ron did all of his usual (and voluntary) chores around the Station, like emptying the garbage, taking out and bringing in the signs and flags, and everything I'm too lazy to do, and Betty brought a newly acquired photo of Afton in the '50s that includes a view of the Ritz Theater! We've been wanting one of those, and this is a good one.
