It seems that I've been away from Afton Station and the blog for such a long time that I fear I might lose some of my loyal readers. I'm still here, and after the Christmas madness passes, I intend to be back to blogging, exploring interesting Route 66 places, and relating stories about what's going on in the life of little Afton.
I had a visit at home from Ron "Tattoo Man" Jones yesterday. He wanted to show me something. Well, he sure did! He has had the entire back of his head shaved and replaced his hair with a very large tattoo of Afton Station! I don't know if I have words for this, so I'll just say thank you to Tattoo for his loyalty to the Station, and also warn him to be sure to keep up the shaving, lest Afton Station will be spouting hair in a couple of weeks. He now has over 150 Route 66 tattoos. No matter how you feel about the art of tattoos, Ron has to be singled out for his loyalty to the Mother Road.
