It's a good thing we didn't have any visitors to Afton Station in the early part of the day because Ron M. and I spent a couple of hours trying to figure out what's going on with my camera.  We finally narrowed it down to a problem with my SD Card Reader, not the camera.   So on the way home we stopped at Radio Shack and got another one which works like a charm. Whew!  And lucky you!  You won't have to listen to me bitch about cameras any more!

There were only 6 visitors today,  not counting a person bringing brochures for a local event and a politician politicking.   A couple from Miami, OK were the first to arrive.  Although they've lived just 15 miles away forever, they'd never had the chance to drop in to the Station.  They were glad they finally did!

A young woman and her two little boys came next.  They're from Vinita, OK, 15 miles in the other direction, and they'd never been to the Station either.  The little boys, a 7 years old and a 2 years old, were very sweet, personable, and well-behaved.   They derived great joy from the penny pressing machine.  Here they are!

 Our final visitor was a woman from Ft. Worth, TX on a Route 66 geocaching expedition which will take her from Amarillo, TX to southern Missouri.   She visited with us for quite a while, then toured the showrooms, found her cache, and went on her way.

Robin worked yesterday and had 12 visitors, some from England and Italy.   Dean "Crazy Legs" Walker also stopped by to deliver a box of goodies relating to a discussion we'd had with him last weekend.  Without giving away what we plan to do with them (you'll see when we get it all done), I can say that the box contained a number of mannequin heads and masks.    Ron M. just had to try a couple of them on, although I don't really know why. How creepy is this???!!!

Thanks, Dean.  Ron M., I think I like your regular face a lot better!     I'm outta here!
