On the other hand, our other visitors from foreign countries today -- a couple from the Netherlands and a couple from the Czech Republic -- were also having a ball and were fun to talk to. The Dutch folks spoke perfect, unaccented English. Amazing! The young Czechs were fun, and were excited about heading back to Chicago after a 6-week tour of Route 66.
Other visitors today came from Nowata OK, Hutchinson KS, Landrigan TX, Bartlesville OK, Indianapolis IN, Florissant MO, and Neosho MO. Everyone was understanding about the children and the fact that some of the cars weren't available for viewing. Long-time friend Jim Griffin and his wife Sherry from Frisco, TX were in the area and came over to help David with the kindergarten party. It's always good to see him. John, one of the technicians at my dialysis unit, came up with his girlfriend to finally check out the Station, too.
Ron took this photo of the interior of Bassett's Grocery. I haven't asked him from which window he took the picture, but it puts a new perspective on the ruins of the once vital grocery store.
I'll be back on Tuesday with more fun and games!
