A group of 22 New Zealanders driving Mustang convertibles were next, a pleasant surprise. I love the Kiwis. It seems like every day is a party for them.
There were also the 23 other visitors not with groups. They came from Broomfield CO, Pryor OK, Las Vegas NV, Fern Creek KY, St. Charles MO, Blue Ash OH, San Antonio TX, Neptune NJ, Lincoln AR, Ft. Scott KS, Union NJ, Deptford NJ, and Fairland OK. Dean "Crazy Legs" Walker also visited for a while. He was accompanying the Ride for the Relay folks.
Here are a couple of photos I took before my camera imploded. This is my one picture of some of the participants in the Ride for the Relay.
The shaved ice stand next to Afton Station is now "Closed for the Season". It's barely been open at all this summer. That doesn't sound like much of a business plan to me. I had hoped for a summer of yummy sno cones and an increase in visitors because of shared customers. Never happened.
My friend Frank Gierhart from Sapulpa, OK surprised me with a great gift. He owns a frame shop, and on Sunday he brought me this beautifully framed copy of the article about me that appeared in the Tulsa World last week. What an extraordinary surprise gift! Thank you, Frank!
