Have you felt lately that the action at Afton Station has calmed down, with day after day of excellent visits from engaging travelers but not much in the way of excitement?
Well, just you wait!!
Stay tuned for Saturday's blog post, when there will be a report about a VERY exciting event that will transpire at the Station. It's never been done before, and my guess is that it's happened very seldom in a Route 66 venues. I look forward to reporting the event right after it transpires on Saturday!
Meanwhile, today held our usual helping of grand visitors, and today most of them were on full Route 66 trips. They were undeterred by the 90+ temperatures although most thought temperatures like that would be reserved for their time in the desert, not on the plains of Oklahoma. Whew, it's stinkin'!
Other visitors came from Bella Vista AR, Queens NY, Brea CA, Buchanan FL, and Neosho and Lebanon, MO. Postcard dealer Jim Taylor also stopped in for the 2nd time this week. He may have left with a chunk of my money, but I now own a couple of beautiful vintage postcards.
We now have a small supply of those beautiful Route 66 Christmas balls and coasters hand made by my friend Susan Yates. There aren't many, but I know there are some who have been wanting them, so come and get them.. And thanks so much to Susan for both her generosity and talent.
