First in the door this morning was this couple from Shorewood, WI. . .
. . . followed by this family from Devon, England with two adorable little boys. They're traveling all of Route 66 in a rented motor home, which makes it easier when there are two kids of napping age to contend with. The children were beautifully behaved.Rick Thompson and Richard Fox from Cimarron Photography and Design in Oklahoma City came to take photos of the Station and to interview me for their upcoming DVD about Route 66. They stayed a long time, much to our pleasure. These are delightful men and I look forward to seeing their DVD. Meanwhile, examples of their creativity can be seen here. http://www.cimarronphoto.com/.
The rest of today's 22 visitors hailed from Festus MO, Pittsburgh PA, Buffalo NY, Caledonia MI, and Portland OR.
On the way home, Ron M. and I stopped at the Blue Whale to pick up some brochures. We talked to "Mr. Blue Whale" Blaine Davis for a few minutes, and all of a sudden the day was over. Where did the time go?____________
A quick note and some photos of last night, when Ron M. and I attended Michael Wallis's birthday party in the garden of his home in the Sophian Plaza. I wouldn't ordinarily report on a private party, but since so many of you know Michael, either personally or by reputation, I thought you might like to see the pics. The theme was Michael's turning 66, a big milestone for "Mr. Route 66". A good time was had by all. It was also fun to catch up with Pat and Larry Wofford, formerly of Route 66 Harley Davidson, and truly enjoyed the balmy night, good food, and great company.
