There's an awful lot of rain here in northeastern Oklahoma today. It's nothing compared to what Oklahoma City got yesterday, when they accumulated 10 inches in one day. Even so, it's been wet for most of the day with occasional breaks in the cloud cover which made it possible for travelers to enjoy their convertibles and motorcycles for a little while at least.
Shellee Grahan and Jim Ross sent me a couple of their new t-shirt designs which they're just starting to market. There are 4 designs depicting scary or haunted ledgends on Route 66 and are beautifully done by TouristTrapTees. Here are a couple of them. Their partnership with artist Joel Rayburn will surely be both fun and financially worthwhile. www.touristtraptees.com
A family from Coweta OK,who just happened to be old friends with Betty Wheatley who was there at the time. They had a wonderful reunion right there in the Station.
A couple from St. Louis driving a '71 Chevelle Malibu convertible with the top down when they arrived at Afton Station, however it had been a matter of up-and-down for the last couple of days as they dodged raindrops!
Since Betty never comes empty handed, today she arrived with some roses from her own yard for me, and an incredible coconut cream pie for all of us to share. As usual, the pie was inhaled in no time at all. Since Tattoo Man was visiting on his way back from the 3rd birthday party of the Boots Court in Carthage, MO he helped us with the pie.
I'm home now and drying out. Come see us tomorrow, when the weather is sure to be better (maybe!).
