Sunrise over the Rose Bowl, Tulsa Route 66
David arrived at Afton Station early and took away the finished Citroen 2CV. He leaves tomorrow to take it to the Concours d'Elegance in Greenwich, CT. Here 'tis, with it's proud owner. Greenwich Concours d ' Elegance
A visiting sign maker from Grove verified that renting a billboard on the Interstate to advertise Afton Station would be ridiculously expensive. I love the idea, but I knew the answer even before he told me. He also told me about the red tape necessary to erect a billboard on that right-of-way, so I gave up on that pipe dream. I guess I'll stop fantasizing about luring folks off the Interstate and continue to concentrate on those folks that prefer the back roads. They're more fun, anyway.
There were also visitors from Shadyside OH, Galena KS, and right here in Afton, 14 in all. And then, as I was getting ready to leave, a couple stopped in on their way home to Stillwater OK from a visit to the husband's mother in Lexington, KY. Well.... when I heard that, of course I had to ask about his Lexington connection, and it turns out we went to the same high school in Lexington and we both went to the University of Kentucky! He's a bit older, but even so, we were able to do some reminiscing. Although I didn't know him then, we established that he lived fairly near me, and we had mutual memories of several teachers. I love it when that happens! Another great day.
