At last! Back to Afton!

After what has seemed like a very long time, I was back at Afton Station full time today. It wasn't the most beautiful day (cold and kind of dark), but that didn't stop three visitors from stopping in. Ron M. was with me, Betty stopped in for a while, and David dropped in, too. There was also a trucker from Fond du Lac WI, a man from Seneca OK, and another gentleman from Miami OK. The man from Miami has a Model T of his own which he's restoring. The trucker has traveled all of Route 66, both for business and pleasure. One of David's winter projects has been to restore the end pieces for the corners of the roof. They're ready to go on as soon as the weather clears a bit. Gee, it was so good to get back in the swing again.

Ron M. made a snowman (a very small one) to celebrate our return to Afton.
Ron is proud of his snowman, which has eyes of grapes and a mouth of pretzel
Ron kissed his snowman. This, I cannot explain. :-)

By the end of the day, the snowman was still standing, but sans eyes and mouth. The temperature went into the 40s, and that's sure death for tiny snowmen.

Only about a month and a half 'til spring!
There's no place like home. But, one has to get out once and a while.
