For so many people from so many countries, the long and winding road means Route 66. Particularly this year we've been overflowing with visitors from all continents so we decided it was time to honor those who come so far to see our wonderful country. We hope this little display of flags will reflect pleasure we get from meeting so many foreign friends. (If your flag isn't represented here, let us know and we'll try to find one.)
We also had a visitor from San Francisco, CA, an employee of a tour company planning to bring several bus tours to Route 66. She was checking out some of the places they wanted to visit on the tours. I hope we passed her inspection! We also visited with folks from Bowie, TX, and a couple from Conshohocken, OH. The Ohio folks were on their way to Texas to fetch their son who is returning from a one-year deployment in Afghanistan. We certainly shared their joy at getting their son back safely from his third deployment!
Marly, Ron M., Tattoo and I held down the fort today. Despite the day being mostly cloudy and gloomy, we know that people are still out there traveling.
