Puppies, Babies, Lovebirds
Among our 20 visitors today were . . .this cute puppy who followed a group of local Afton kids into the Station late in the day. He refused a doggie biscuit but didn't mind posing for this photo. . .
. . . and this couple from Afton biked into the Station. Baby Emily Lou had a nice ride on dad's back on a perfect day for a bicycle jaunt.
Here's Emily Lou up close. Really a beautiful child!
There were others, of course. They came from Odessa MO, Vinita OK, Alta Loma CA, Miami OK, Punta Gorda FL, and Parsons KS. Ron M. and Tattoo Man were also on hand, Tattoo Man sporting -- you guessed it -- a new tattoo! That makes 90-something. Frankly, I've lost count.
I've had more time to read Jim Hinckley's new book "Ghost Towns of Route 66" and I become more and more enthusiastic about it each time I pick it up. The photos are magnificent, and of course Jim's deep research and his way with words puts the icing on a very beautiful cake. I hope many of you will consider buying a copy, available at Barnes and Noble, Amazon.com or at the 2011 Route 66 Festival in Amarillo in June. If you're a true Route 66 fan, you need this in your collection!
