Oklahoma Calm

I'm thankful for a beautiful sunny but chilly day in Oklahoma.  I have lots of friends on the East Coast, so of course I worry about them as I hear news of Hurricane Sandy getting closer and closer to shore.  My thoughts are with my readers who may be waiting in anticipation for the result of unpredictable nature.

The gentleman below, Randall from Greenville SC, stopped at Afton Station to check us out before heading for Tulsa to catch a plane back home to South Carolina.  During his visit, he got a call saying his flight has already been delayed for at least an hour due to the hurricane.   He's been in our area for 6 weeks on business, so is eager to be home.  We enjoyed meeting him, however, and wish he could have stayed longer.  I  think he would have enjoyed a longer visit, too.
It was another quiet day at the Station, with the remainder of our guests coming from Sherwood Park Alberta Canada, and Pryor, Grove, and Miami, OK.   There were not too many people on the roads this weekend, but our Canadian guests were staying with elderly relatives in Tulsa and decided to take the day to check out what Route 66 is all about. They were intrigued enough to say they'd like to do the whole Road soon.   The Grove, OK visitors just moved to Oklahoma a few days ago, and they too wanted to check out the Mother Road in the region.  They'll be back.   The Pryor, OK visitor was a familiar face, a nice young man who used to live in Afton but hadn't been back for a visit since he moved last year.  Good to see him!

Ron M. was with me today, but none of the other "regulars" came by all day.   We got quite a bit of reading done between visitors.
