My steamboating mentor, Ruth Ferris, used to say, "Keep the muddy water flowing in your veins until distilled water flows to the sea!" And of course there is that well known saying of "Once you ride behind two stacks you are doomed to steamboat until you are tombed!" And, although our beloved DQ has only ONE stack, she counts for having given "steamboatitis" to many, many "kids" of all ages!!! And, as Elaine said, no cure is being sought for this marvelous malady that has afflicted so many of us!
