There's not much that can pull me out of a post-illness funk like opening Facebook and finding that a publication called Examiner.com has named Afton Station one of the "Top Ten Sights to See" on Route 66. I know almost nothing about the Examiner or the author of the article, Vicki Lundy, but I'm thrilled that someone would consider Afton Station to be among the likes of such renowned Route 66 tourist attractions as the Santa Domingo Pueblo in New Mexico, the Will Rogers Museum in Oklahoma, and Buckingham Fountain in Chicago. Whether the Station truly belongs among such well-known and important sites might be questionable, but I certainly won't turn down this kind of publicity for our little ol' home-grown museum. Folks who visit almost universally appreciate what we have there, and we certainly appreciate the vast assortment of travelers from all over the world who stop there on their Mother Road adventures.
