The above three guys made my day! Meet Rich from E. Longmeadow, Massachusetts, Rick from Portland, Oregon and Tom from W. Springfield, Massachusetts. They're Route 66 friends whom I've met both at Afton Station and at several festivals and get-togethers, and today they came for a visit to Afton Station. I was so looking forward to their visit, since they're so nice and so much fun. They stayed for about 90 minutes, and I'm pretty sure that 88 of those minutes were spent laughing and joking. It was just great! They're headed for Cuba, MO for a Route 66 gathering there this weekend, and I almost jumped in the car and went with them. Alas, that's not possible, but it was sure nice to see Rick, Rich, and Tom again and I know they'll be the life of the party in Cuba.
Tattoo Man was also around today, and he came in time to chat with the above trio. Phil was there all day, polishing one of the cars, and Marly and Robin also stopped in for a while. Our other visitors came from Grand Prairie TX, Brookville OH, Independence KS, and Ardennes, France.
A very large group is scheduled to visit on Saturday, so stay tuned for news.
