For once, I really don't have much to say about today. It was a good day at Afton Station (but then again, aren't they all?), but it was a bit slow. To be honest, Ron M. and I rather enjoyed the slowness. We had 16 visitors, but they came at such a well-spaced pace that it seemed to be almost pre-planned. Our visitors came from West Hills CA, Grants Pass OR, Lincoln NE, Kansas City MO, Anadarko OK, Muskogee OK, Lexington KY, and Port Elgin, Ontario Canada.
A mom from Kansas City MO arrived with her three grown daughters from Lincoln, NE. The three girls always take a "sister trip" together, but this year their mother retired so they invited her to go along on Route 66. A fellow from just up the road in Miami, OK who has visited Afton Station before brought his visiting friend from Grants Pass, OR who happened to be a major collector of vintage Fords and has even built himself a repro Texaco gas station near his home. Photos he had assured us that his place is pretty darn incredible!
Some folks from Lexington, KY came in and I pounced on them for current info about a place I lived for quite a few years of my early life. Glad to hear my high school is still standing! They happen to live very close to where my parents and I lived when I was in high school in the '60s.
Also at the end of the day came the couple from Anadarko, OK and Port Elgin, Ontario. Lovely people all.
It was a perfectly beautiful day today -- cool, crisp, and sunny. Wish we could have many more like this before the winter chill sets in. I also hope we have many more days filled with such nice folks as we greeted today! ( At the beginning of this post I said I didn't have much to say. Hmm... .guess I was wrong!)
