Notes from the Mother Road

It was a relatively calm, casual day at Afton Station on Route 66.   We had visits from old friends and new ones, and even a multi-legged friend.   He looked pretty attractive on our red windowsill!
Betty, Crazy Legs, Tattoo Man, and Scruggs all stopped in for a while, so it was nice to chat and catch up with all of them.  Our new friends included folks from Krakow Poland, Kalamazoo MI, Seneca MO, Redding England,  Wausau WI, and Grove and Vinita OK.
Some bikers from just down the road in Grove were taking advantage of an unseasonably cool (or, at least, not as hot) day on their bikes.  And off they go to other Route 66 adventures. . .
I had to talk this couple from Redding, England into having their photo taken.  I fail to understand, since they're a very handsome duo!   I talked them into it and I'm sure they'll be  happy when they see the results.  They are on a four-month tour of the U.S., which of course includes Route 66.
Well, I must go and do some reordering.  I'm happy to say that Route 66 items are selling very well this year.  It helps my pocketbook, of course, but mostly it's a sign that our beloved road just keeps getting more and more popular.  That's what we're all about !

Sounds like a great day!

You should submit that grasshopper photo to a photo contest. It is a VERY cool photo! National Wildlife Federation, or National Geographic...something like that!
