The best I can say about today is that it was surprising. I could also say it was disappointing, but since every day at Afton Station is a good day for me, I'll just stick with surprising. Why, you ask? Because Ron M. and I sat there ALL day, until nearly 3 o'clock, with ZERO visitors! I wish I knew why, but I guess it's just the luck of the draw. There was very little traffic passing by today either. I wondered if it had anything to do with Father's Day, although in previous years we've had a number of families come on that day so Dad could enjoy the old cars. But not today.
To assuage our boredom, we made (and ate) popcorn. It was delicious and made the place smell like a movie theater as usual, but of course without a movie. Michael Scruggs and a local frequent visitor, Scott, came by for a while. Otherwise, many magazines were read and Sunday crosswords completed.
One more thing. . . today we saw a young man who appeared to be skateboarding Route 66. He didn't stop, but he had an enormous pack on his back and was being followed by a guy on a bicycle with equally as large packs. This is a first for us, and we wish they had stopped. If anyone knows anything about this, I'd love to hear the details.
Here's a photo just sent to me from Jean from Australia who visited the Station with Laurie Garth on Thursday. Laurie is in the middle, and no need to identify the other two. . .
