The September REFLECTOR landed in the HSM mailbox this morning! Indeed, those ISLAND QUEEN photos are, as Ruth Ferris would say, "like catnip" to river people!

Thanks, Dave, for yet another stellar issue! I've been enjoying it -- with a cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin -- but I must literally FORCE myself to put it down in a minute and get on with the business of the day!

In response to John's inquiry about Homer Denney, attached herewith is an image of one of his business cards as a young man. When I met Mr. Denney aboard the BELLE of LOUISVILLE many decades later, he was elderly and VERY hearing impaired -- but he could still make that steam calliope SING! He passed away on September 20, 1975 at age 90.
