Bob neglected to mention that he was the star painter on the DQ...when he went over to towboats, we spotted his right away - stars on the deck. And acorns: good luck, decorations, and supposedly caught the lightning strikes. Each line had its own acorn color scheme, although red and gold was very popular. The NATCHEZ has been blessed from the beginning with acorns made by Larry Walker of Cincinnati, in his home workshop...pix later
