Ruth Ferris always said that the glowing introductions she often received when speaking at meetings and events made her think of the oldtime river reporters in the newspapers who, through their liberal use of complimentary remarks, could "make a little old tub sound like a floating palace"! Alan is a treasure trove of river experiences and we're looking forward to an afternoon of hearing all about them! And I know where he lives in case he doesn't show up!
