Default Christmas on the towboats

I've never been stuck on the river during Christmas, but I've heard a lot of radio traffic between the people who have. The big, BIG topic is who gets to be off the boat. Much of what is spoken is a in sort of resigned humor, often very funny, but the underlying homesickness is always there.

Those dot-orgers who are duty-bound to be away from home have my sympathy and good wishes.
