If you're tired of hearing about our torrential rain, I'm pleased to report that by the end of the weekend it should be over. Meanwhile, Lake Afton was reactivated this morning. Lake Afton is nothing more than a low spot in the road in front of the Station, but if the rain is heaviest the little pond could stay viable long enough to spawn a nice small school of largemouths..
These two are from Little Rock, Arkansas (she) and Bastrup, Louisiana (he). More beautiful, shiny smiles on a dreary day.
Our other visitors came from Fredricksburg Virginia, Forestberg Texas, Columbus Georgia, Liberal Kansas, Kingsville Missouri, and several towns near Kansas City. Two larger family groups who were vacationing at Grand Lake chose to spend the rainy day with us, too.
I was becoming nervous about getting low on some merchandise, but just in the nick of time some orders arrived and now we are virtually loaded up on anything you might want, including t-shirts, EZ66 Guides, beautiful embroidered caps, maps, and Route 66 flags. One of my favorite new acquisitions are these sparkly t-shirts, which Robin has named "bling shirts". Initially I only have a few but I plan to order quite a few more soon. I love them!
