The last day of the month brought a plethora of folks to Afton Station, and almost half of the travelers were from foreign countries. They came from Mackay Queensland Australia, Norberg Sweden, Linkdping Sweden, Taby Sweden, Tampke Finland, Helsinki Finland, St. Alberts Alberta Canada, and Ararat Victoria Australia. We also had visitors from Pittsburg KS, Waldeboro ME, Pleasant Hill MO and Checotah OK.
Just check out the photos. . .
Aussies from Mackay, Queensland. . .
Three lovely Swedish ladies, from Norberg, Llinkdping, and Taby. . .
A most interesting couple from Tampek, Finland. . .
This fellow, traveling alone, from Helsinki, Finland. . .
The gentleman from Victoria, Australia (who, incidentally has about 13 gorgeous vintage cars of his own), chats with the gentleman from St. Alberts Canada while his wife looked for some iPhone photos of their Aussie car collection for me to admire. I did!
.A kind grandma from Waldeboro, Maine is taking her granddaughters on a Route 66 adventure. All are having a marvelous time.
This is the 1936 Ford Roadster C-18 which was driven by the fellow from Alberta, Canada. It was made in Canada and it is breathtakingly lovely.
And finally. . .
For those who have an interest in such things, Ron M. and I stopped by the famous McDonald's that straddles the Interstate in Vinita to snap a picture of the demolition that's going on there. The arched portion will remain and be revitalized, but the two side buildings are being razed and will be replaced. Ho hum. . .
I learned how to say "thank you" in Swedish today, so take
(pronounced tack-eh) to all my guests today!
Oh wait! Two more things: I totally forgot to report yesterday that Ron "Tattoo Man" Jones surprised us by driving up to Afton. He is healing nicely from his most recent surgery and seems to be right back to his old enthusiastic self. And speaking of our frequent lovable but crazy visitors, Dean "Crazy Legs" Walker dropped in for a visit today, too.
