Ladies of Spain. . .

Four ladies from Valencia, Spain were early risers today and arrived at Afton Station before we were even officially open.  They were very nice but spoke almost no English. They were in buying moods, so I can't complain!

And this beautiful woman, traveling solo from Clayton, NY (in the beautiful Thousand Islands area of upstate New York), was enjoying a partial Route 66 trip, and although she claimed to be in a hurry, Phil and I managed to entice her into a half hour visit.  We really enjoyed her cheerful attitude!
 Tom and Pat Wanko from St. Louis, MO also came by with gifts given posthumously from dear Bob Waldmire.   They were given, by Bob before his death, the job of distributing his ashes to 10 places on Route 66, and since Bob was my good friend, Afton Station was one of them selected by Bob.  I am honored to have this memory of Bob, and intend to find an appropriate place to memorialize him.

And now, I'm so tired I can barely lift my fingers to type, so I'm stopping.  I will try to find the time to expand on this post tomorrow.

Bob Waldmire all along the Route and there at Afton Station--it seems just right.
