Default Stale cookies

That newspaper pix was from fall 1977... the year I rode 28 straight days, took 6 off and rode another 9. (my car loan had been paid off so I had some cash burning a hole in my pocket)
It was always interesting to be on the lock wall and visit with crew and pax as I delivered the cookies - one of the most interesting and surprising times I had to go up to L&D 14 for some reason, and as the boat was entering the lock, I heard familiar voices: Helen "HotFingers" Prater and Lil Smith - I had no idea they were aboard, so we had a great but too short visit.
Then there was the 'airmail delivery' to the AQ from the Centennial Bridge... yep, there were some good times both aboard and following the boats on land.
