I'm talking about two signs in particular, and I've been awaiting both for a while. First, the beautiful small billboard advertising "Afton Station -- 9 Miles" has finally been put up on the fence in front of Marly's mother's house. The making of the sign was a group effort by Marly, Robin, and me (although all I did was cut the stencils for the lettering). Marly's mom happens to live exactly at the intersection where the Miami segment of the old Sidewalk Highway alignment meets with the newer stretch which leads into Afton. A perfect spot to assure that travelers turn in the correct direction to get to Afton Station! (Click pic to enlarge.)
One more thing before I tell you about my day. . . The very creative Robin is at it again. This time, she decided to decorate a cow skull in a Route 66 theme! It isn't finished, and this is a terrible photo, but she is decorating the skull with sequins, beads, and other shiny tiny objects. When finished, it will be almost totally covered. Very interesting. I just might buy it from her. I've seriously always wanted a cow skull for the weird Route 66 room in my house.
