The Star

The star of the show today at Afton Station was this perfectly gorgeous Thunderbird driven there by folks from Claremore, just down the road.  The beautiful shade of blue doesn't quite come across in the shade of this photo, but believe me, it was stunning.   So were the people who brought it to  us.  One couple in the T-bird and their friends in a vintage Bronco were just out for a ride on Route 66 and they found a good day to do it.   It was the perfect fall day, cool and sunny.
A couple from Oklahoma City  also exploring Oklahoma Route 66 dropped in as well.  I was crazy about his t-shirt, which advertised the Exchequer Restaurant in Chicago, where Al Capone was known to take a meal now and then.  And, the back of the shirt is intriguing, too.  Ouch!
Our other visitors came from West Plains, MO and Kansas City, MO.   It was unsurprisingly quiet again today.

On the way to Afton this morning, we stopped at the little farmer's market in Chelsea for the last time this season, as they are closing after today.  I couldn't resist these two big turnips, which are beautiful. Peeling them will be a challenge, of course, but worth the pulled muscles and cut fingers.  Yum!
