Sometimes I look at the clock and realize it's time to close Afton Station and go home, and it seems like I just got there! Other than being a bit disorienting, it's the happy sign of a very good day. Our 31 visitors today made it so.
I'll begin with friends. Very loyal Ron M. was with me, of course. Betty came for a while, Marly stopped in and helped out with some mopping (flood, y'know), and Route 66 friend Dean Kennedy used Afton Station as a short break on his way to his new home in Albuquerque. Another Route 66 fan Rhys Martin came for a visit with his fiancee Sam Extance. They are truly lovely people who will be married on October 10, but more about that later.
