Missouri Day at Afton Station

I just went over my visitors list today and realized that 9 out of the 14 visitors were from Missouri -- 4 from Carthage, 3 from Kansas City, 1 from Grandview, and 1 from Freeman. These two fellows from Freeman and Grandview were returning from a trip to the Gun Show in Tulsa and decided to take a spin on Route 66. Since Betty B. was visiting for the day, we double-timed them into buying a couple of the very cool do-rags which she makes and sells, as well as some other merchandise. It was a fun visit.
One of the Kansas City folks was repeat visitor Dave Eames. You may remember him from last year, when he brought me a wonderful metal mobile which now hangs in the front window of Afton Station. It was good to see him again. Non-Missouri folks who visited today came from Coopersville MI, Ottawa Canada, and Afton and Miami, OK.

Ron M. took it upon himself to wash all of the windows.... and we have a LOT of windows! Wow, I didn't realize how dirty they were. The sun was shining much brighter after he finished. Thank you SO much, Ron!

It was fun having Betty B. visit today. We changed some things around and made room for another shelf of her great merchandise. I meant to snap a picture of it, but I forgot.

Overnight last night, my number of blog hits went over 40,000. Thanks so much to all who continue to read the blog. I hope you enjoy reading it at least half as much as I enjoy writing it.

I think it's time for a cow picture, don't you?
