Something dawned on me very early this morning, as I was listening on SiriusXM to Howard Stern's amazing Monday interview with Paul McCartney. I've been concerned lately because I've become completely, entirely, totally out of ideas for titles for my daily blog posts. So I made the decision that, for a while at least, I'll use Beatles song titles that fit the general feeling of each day at Afton Station. Shortly thereafter, the most glorious sunrise revealed itself in the Eastern sky. How perfect is that!
With visits from folks from Australia and Wales, it was a sunny international day on Route 66 and at Afton Station. Of course, we also had an abundance of domestic travelers as well.
We also had visitors from Kalamazoo MI, and Miami, Cleora, and Shawnee, OK. The owner of the old Marathon filling station in Miami (OK), Daryl Buckmaster, came for a visit and to tell us that he and his son are almost ready to open their station to the public. It's been restored and will sell antiques, vintage signs, etc. Can't wait to visit it. I'll let you know when the opening day is officially announced. On Route 66, we are always happy to promote those who are doing their part to bring the Road back to life!
