Just wanted to let everyone know that I'll be taking approximately the next 10 days away from blogging. My daughter and I are planning to spend a week together, and since I see her so infrequently I want to devote every moment to her and the activities we've planned. You might hear something from me, but it won't be much, and I don't plan to go back to Afton Station until June 2. While I'm gone, the Station will be open for its normal days and hours, and will be lovingly tended by Phil and Marly.
Just wanted to let you know that I wasn't raptured or anything like that. I will be back, and I do look forward to resuming my blog.
I spent a good deal of last evening watching the Weather Channel's coverage of the tragic Joplin tornado. Sad, unbelievable, and so close to home. Having lived up that way for a couple of years, I'm quite familiar with that area. My heart and my thoughts go out to all who have been affected.
