On the way home from Afton Station tonight, cruising down the usual stretch of Route 66, I told Ron M. that it was a fairy tale kind of day. I'm not completely sure what that means, but it was just a feeling. Perhaps it goes something like this. . .
They came from far away lands. This lovely young couple came from Glasgow, Scotland, hoping to find the secrets of middle America. Finn MacCool would be proud of their adventuring spirit.
These travelers, along with some from Leesburg VA and Myrtle Beach, SC are today's Afton Station fairy tale. They are on fairy tale vacations, but they seldom realize that my work at the Station is the fairy tale in my own life. It's something I've wanted since childhood. That I have achieved it is the stuff that fairy tales are made of Like all good fairy tales, everyone lived happily ever after.
