Actually, there wasn't much to do BUT watch the construction. A mere seven folks came to visit, and they came from Van Buren AR, Kansas City MO, and Afton and Tulsa, OK. Some of them had been there before but none were on long trips. The gentleman from Afton came in to tell me that he has lived in town all his life and can attest to the fact that at one time Afton Station housed a small Studebaker dealership. Since I'd never heard this before from any of the myriad folks who have come in to say they remember various stages of the Station's history, I was at first skeptical. But the man swears it's true. This is quite exciting, since we do have a couple of Studebakers in our collection.
Ron M. was with me today, and Phil and Robin stopped in and stayed for a while. Last night, Robin came in and polished our floors to a beautiful shine! They really needed it, and haven't looked so good for a very long time. Many thanks, Robin!
I was facing the wrong direction this morning when the sun came up, so I took this rear view mirror photo. Can't waste a nice sunrise!
