Amid a wealth of two-footed guests to Afton Station today came a couple of four-footed friends with good stories to tell.
Rescuing a pup from a bad situation is as lovely as doing the same for a human being. In the case of the two dogs who visited today, the kindness of their owners shone through when they related their stories.
Ron M. who was working here today, was very understanding of the emotions behind dog adoption, as his dear companion, Chewy, a rescued pup, was the love of his life for 17 years until she passed away several years ago.
But there were plenty of other visitors today, not accompanied by their pets, but just as wonderful. They came from Paris France, Los Angeles CA, Houston TX, Broken Arrow OK, Wilton ME, Janesville WI, and Guatemala.
Regular readers have probably noticed that my posts have become shorter and perhaps less interesting lately. For some of you, this is probably a relief. However, for those who are used to reading my longer ramblings, I apologize. Its all a matter of time... i.e. I have none! I don't know what happened to my life that's causing this lack of organization and time management, but I hope to correct it soon. For now, just be glad things are going well at Afton Station and for all of Route 66.
