Auspicious Autumn Day

 Autumn has arrived on Route 66 in Afton, Oklahoma.  Well, at least one tree in the park across from the Mental Health Center has burst into color.   Love it!

It was an auspicious day at Afton Station, too!  Our 38 visitors consisted of 14 from the Sapulpa (OK) Draggin Masters Car Club and 24 others from everywhere.  Here are some of the Draggin Masters, just milling around and checking out the "stuff".
Our friends Deanna and Joanne from Tulsa dropped in unexpectedly and we were so happy to see them.  Unfortunately, it was at the same time that many others were there, so there wasn't a lot of time for chatting.  Here's Deanna making the acquaintance of two visiting ladies, one from Grove, OK and one from Valais, Switzerland.
The Draggin Masters came with a few good looking cars!
Folks from Lawton, Oklahoma were visiting Grand Lake and decided to take a day to explore Route 66.
And these little kids from Chelsea, OK seem bewildered by all there is to see and do at Afton Station.  Their parents showed them how to use the penny pinching machine and they were excited to get to make their own souvenirs.
Other visitors came from Neosho MO, Springfield MO, and Taipei Taiwan.

At one point there were so many visitors milling around that we lost track of one man.  Then Ron M. walked over to the rear of the DeSoto, and there he was! But how the heck did he get trapped in there?   (Never fear, he's fine, except for a couple of very sore arms.)
