Over the years, we've greeted quite a number of visitors to Afton Station who are traveling Route 66 on their honeymoons, but I believe this is the first time we've met a couple who is heading for Las Vegas to be married -- via Route 66 of course. Furthermore, they're from the Netherlands! Following a lifelong dream, Roger and Kitty from Haastricht, Holland are having such a good time. Oh, I fell in love with this wonderful couple -- so enthusiastic, so talkative, so aware of the charms of the Mother Road. They don't want to be married by an Elvis impersonator or the like... just a simple ceremony in a small Las Vegas chapel for them. They won our hearts today, and (Ron M. and I) wish them the very best in their life together.
Robin is on a week's vacation and taking her place tomorrow and Wednesday is Rann Lee, a new recruit to my volunteer corps. He's a great guy who looks forward to meeting and greeting travelers. On Saturday, Marly is taking over because I have to give a presentation to a group in Oklahoma City. And remember, we're now closed on Mondays. That's the only Fall change in our regular schedule.
