On the excursion boat America there were garbage holes that led from the roof to the paddlewheel housings. Small boys could get down on hands and knees, push the little door open and watch the paddlewheel turn. I was one of those small boys.

Years and years later I was playing trumpet in a dance band. Walt Ecker, the guy next to me, mentioned the America, then told me about that little door.
