12 noon - Police cars are speeding through town at about 80 mph, so something must be going on. Otherwise, there's nothing but the hum of the heater to break the silence. This reminds me of the "old days" when I'd sit here all day with no visitors, looking out the window and counting passing trucks. I'm cold. I've cleaned my desk and made a few price signs. I've read two magazines. I brought sushi for lunch, however, so all is not lost.
1:00 p.m. - Finally, some visitors, a wonderful couple from Gothenburg, Sweden. They're traveling Route 66 during a lull in his business trip. He works for Volvo in Gothenburg (of course!) and is test driving a 2014 model on this trip. Good looking car, from what I could see of it.
Shortly thereafter, Betty came for a short visit and we had a good chat. Two guys from Oklahoma City also came in and took a look at the cars. One of them had been here before and wanted to show his friend. After all that, I went back to staring out the window until it was time to head home.
One thing I can see from the Station is this window in the 2nd floor of the building across the way. Kind of spooky, don't you think?
