That's Better

Another day on Route 66.  After our disappointment at  having no visitors on Thursday, we had great news about yesterday's roster of visitors.  Marly reported that he visited with 20 people, from the U.S. as well as Kenya, London, and Australia.   Then, today started out slowly and I was little worried again until about 10:30 when travelers started to arrive.

We started the day with a big batch of popcorn.  Our popper makes the most wonderful popcorn.  It was enjoyed by us as well as several of our visitors.
Our 17 visitors today came from Washington MO, Fairmont WV, Miami OK, St. Louis MO, Amsterdam Netherlands, Grove OK,  Guthrie OK, and Tulsa, OK.
These folks from Amsterdam indicated that during their two Route 66 vacations, they are almost constantly asked if they smoke pot, since Amsterdam is known as the city where marijuana is legal.  They said they're tired of saying no, and that not everyone in Amsterdam is a pot head.   Ha ha....
This nice lady from Washington, MO is taking one of her first solo vacations since the passing of her husband.  She's been enjoying a few days on Grand Lake, with a bit of Route 66ing as well.
These gentlemen, from Fairmont, W. Va and Miami OK , have been here before but this time came back with a camera to immortalize some of our beautiful cars in pictures.
Our new little "townie" friend is Bryson, an 8 year old who loves to come in, look around, play the penny pincher, terrorize the rubber snakes in the snake box, and ask an incredible number of questions.  You might say he  has a severe case of the "whys".   Today, he also had some popcorn and a Mountain Dew and became very at home hanging with us. Nice kid!

We also had some folks come in to plan a trip to Afton Station in July for their Corvette club.  We're always so glad to schedule car clubs (or any other clubs for that matter.)

I only hope tomorrow is as much fun as today.  We shall see....
