Bob: I can just hear your mother saying THAT in her delightful southern accent! I recall the time she drove us back to the DQ at Memphis and when we reached the foot of Union Avenue she said, "I refuse to drive on those awful cobblestones so THIS is as far as I go!" Indeed, our perceptions change over the years. Judy relates that she thought the old abandoned ferry boat W.J. QUINLAN, sitting high and dry in the Kahlke boat yard at Rock Island for years, was "spooky" and wondered WHY anybody would want to go near it"! Nowadays, she would be all over it - with tools! -- and we'd be there to help!
