Cute kids. . . cute bunny. . . cute sign. That pretty much wraps up our day at Afton Station. These cute kids came to visit with their mom and grandmother and, as is not uncommon, they took an immediate interest in the pressed penny machine. They're from Broken Arrow, OK and are home schooled by a mom who thinks it's important to give them a good basis in Oklahoma history with emphasis on Route 66. Today, they visited the Totem Poles, the Coleman Theater, and us. We're all for that!
This cute bunny (who has been hanging around the Station for several months) stopped hopping long enough for Ron M. to take a quick photo. He seems to live between the front showroom and the back showroom.
Ok, "cute" might not exactly be the most descriptive word for the small billboard Marly has almost finished painting and which will soon hang on a fence across from where Route 66 travelers exit the Miami section of the 9-Foot Highway. "Beautiful" might work better. I thank Marly so much for all the work put in to make the sign, and I can't wait until it's in place and guiding people to the best museum in Afton!
I took the photo below on the way home. The clouds inspired me to think of the famous 1947 Andreas Feininger photo, so I snapped this and converted it to black and white. When I got home I made the comparison, and it was then that I realized that Andreas Feininger I ain't!
