Another G'Day

It's always a g'day when Dale Butel brings one of his Australian tour groups to Afton Station, and that happens at least three times a  year.  Today was such a day, with some other nice surprises as well.

Dale and his group, riding motorcycles or driving cars, arrived at noon, right on time as usual.  There were 31 in the group today.
Here's Dale (right) sitting with my friend Joe Meeks who also visited for the day..
 The Aussies perused the guide books. . .
 . . . chatted around the penny smashing machine. . .
. . . and lined up to buy souvenirs.
Ron M. took this very cool photo of their bikes, which were lined up outside.

These two lovely and personable ladies are from near Springfield, MO.  Charlotte (left) reads my blog every day!  (Hi Charlotte!)   They are traveling with their husbands, who didn't make it into this photo. They were probably in a showroom ogling the cars.
This couple came all the way from Grass Valley, California in their big Bluebird RV.  They're having a good time on a nice long trip.
Our doggie visitor of the day was Miranda, a sweet puppy belonging to this couple from Evansville, Indiana who were passing through in order to meet someone who is selling them a race car!

Other visitors came from Lafayette IN, Cleveland OH, Neosho MO, Derby England, Melbourne Australia, McPherson KS, and Langley, OK.

We will be closed tomorrow (Sunday) as Ron M. and I will be attending the meeting of the Oklahoma Route 66 Association, but will reopen as usual on Monday.
