Later in the day, a rather sad looking gentleman riding a bicycle and pulling a small trailer containing his sleeping equipment as well as, I speculate, all his other worldly goods. He looked around a bit and warmed up before moving on. He said he was originally from Indianapolis, but was vague about his current lodgings. I felt sorry that the chilly nights will no doubt make his travels less comfortable.
The only diversion of the day was watching Marly, Phil, and David wash David's enormous motorhome in the front driveway. He's taking it to Missouri this weekend and wants it to be clean and in good shape after several months of inactivity.
Saturday, November 12 has been set as the date for the dedication of the Ribbon Road monument marker in Afton. Please try to attend. It will be dedicated at 1:00 p.m., followed by refreshments at Afton Station (just a mile away) immediately thereafter. The Oklahoma Route 66 Association will be represented, as well as local officials and everyone we can entice into coming along for the fun.
