No boredom today, with 18 fine guests who came in to Afton Station in a lovely, random way which allowed us to chat with each and every one of them.
They came from Galesburg MI, Battle Creek MI, Perkins OK, Coralville IA, Norman OK, Jefferson City MO, Checotah OK, Vancouver WA, and Leicestershire, England.
coincidence occurred when a couple from Michigan arrived about three minutes after another Michigan couple had entered the Station. And. . . they lived 5 miles from each other! Here's a photo of them after they learned of the proximity of their homes. Fun! One couple is doing Route 66 east to west and the other heading west to east.
Meanwhile, the folks from Perkins, OK are members of the Cimarron Starlite Cruisers and have recently acquired a DX gas station from 1960 which they are in the process of restoring and equipping with lots of DX memorabilia. He was obviously interested in our D-X station. (Note the difference between D-X and DX. Our station is older, when the logo still had the dash between the D and the X. Later, the dash was removed.) Here are some photos from their website, http://slauener.tripod.com.
Marly and Robin worked out back today on a fence project for David. It was cold outside, but they worked tirelessly all day and will do so most of next week as well.
