The best news of this Memorial Day weekend for me is that Ron M. is finally back from his tour of China, Japan, Korea, Russia, Alaska, and Vancouver and came with me to Afton Station today. He brought me salmon jerky! Yum! So great to have you back!
The day started out slowly then the pace picked up close to the time we wanted to close (but then, what else is new?). As a result, we headed for home a full hour late and now I find myself rushing again to post to the blog.
Our visitors came from Claremore, Tulsa and Nowata OK, Los Angeles CA, Lawrence KS, Irving TX, and Houston TX.
My friend Susan made four awesome Route 66 fabric-covered Christmas balls, and no sooner did I put them on our little Christmas tree than a woman came in and bought one! I think they're going to be a big hit at $12 each, and I hope I can talk Susan into making a few more for me. Since she reads this blog faithfully, she now knows my hopes. :-)
This little girl came in with her parents from Kansas. It's not unusual for little boys to be enamored of the cars, but this little girl was actually extremely excited to see the vintage vehicles.... until she met Tripper the Penguin and suddenly her attention was diverted as she made a new friend.
