I just have a few comments for today. It was a good day, but I left my enthusiasm in the 107-degree weather on the way home. Don't get me wrong -- Afton Station, my car, and my house in Tulsa are all wonderfully cooled. It's just that it only takes minutes of the in-between to wilt me. And wilted I am!
The morning started off with Marly and Phil making last-minutes repairs/modifications to the trailer they took to Elk City to pick up the Waldmire UHaul. They got a later start than expected, but finally pulled out around 11 a.m. I trust that right about now they're taking advantage of the pool at the motel I arranged for them, or perhaps enjoying a cold brew. They'll be back tomorrow evening with the treasure.
Most of our 25 guests were from the midwest, and for the first time in ages we had no visitors from any foreign countries. The folks we visited with today were from Anthony KS, Montague TX, Little Elm TX, Midwest City OK, Independence MO, Tulsa OK, Westville OK, Spring Branch TX, Dennison TX, and winners of the Distance Award for today, this couple from Lino Lakes, MN.
This fellow is a former firefighter from Tulsa, but is now engaged in another career. I liked him a lot (I admire firefighters!) and am happy that he'll be back next week. Nice guy!
