It seemed strange to get back to Afton Station after six whole days. As it turns out, the first thing Ron M. and I found out upon arriving there was that not much had happened while we were gone. There were minimal numbers of visitors, and all of them were local. Long-distance traveling has apparently faded for the season, so we'll be going to "Open-only-on-Fri.-Sat.-and Sun." for the winter.
It must be winter! Tripper is ready for cold weather, with his scarf, mittens, and Santa hat. Since flipper mittens are hard to come by in Oklahoma, I had to stitch up a pair out of an old Indian blanket last night. Tripper has lived in our climate for so long now that he's lost his ability to withstand cold temps. I think this outfit should take care of the problem.
