The Station looks great. Kenny worked all day washing windows and scrubbing floors, and Marly came later and supervised the pouring of concrete out back. Tattoo Man stopped in briefly on his way to the Festival, and Betty W. spent some quality time with me today, too. Wonderful day at Afton Station!
I'll be away from this blog until Sunday night, at which time I'll have a Festival report. Have a great weekend. I intend to do the same.
