Separated at Birth

We've all heard about siblings separated at birth and then finding each other 40 or more years later, but I never expected to meet anyone to whom this has happened. Today, we were visited by two brothers who found each other recently under just such circumstances. They were traveling together and enjoying each other's company. What a nice story!

Other visitors had nice stories, too, today. It was just Marly and me today, and the morning was absolutely flat. But around noon things turned around and we ended up with 15 visitors, not bad for a Thursday in October. Yesterday, Robin worked and had only 8 people drop in. Today, we hosted folks from Orlando FL, Wilmington NC, New South Wales Australia, and Owasso, Broken Bow, Vinita, Tulsa, Miami, and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

Looks like Afton Station will be getting another wonderful iconic Route 66 "art object" in the near future. That's all I can say except that some very generous people are donating it to Afton Station. I'm very excited about this acquisition, but can't let the cat out of the bag just yet. Stay tuned.

We are gearing up for what should turn out to be a very big weekend at the Station. Saturday, for example, we are expecting 25 Model A vehicles to visit. Fun!
