Cold Front, Warm Hearts

The chill in the air kept most away from Afton Station today, but those who did visit were from a couple of very different climates and all were warm-hearted indeed.
This couple, formerly from Vancouver, British Columbia , has recently moved back to her original home in Bayfield, Ontario Canada.  They're traveling now in their beautiful Mercedes RV.
.And here is another couple from diverse climates.  She is from Cuba, he is from Formentara, Spain.  They, too, are experiencing Route 66 for the first time.

Betty spent much of the day with Ron M. and me, but not much else took place.  I found a wonderful article in yesterday's Tulsa World (newspaper) about the life of 105-year-old woman who lives in Tulsa, spent most of her life on Route 66, which was very different when she was a kid, and also experienced first  hand the terrible Tulsa Race Riots of 1921.   I won't have time to write about this for a couple of days, so come back and read about it later.  Fascinating stuff!
