Default River Ramblings Reviewed

Its a glorious Sunday morning which follows an equally glorious Saturday for the 8th River Ramblings at the Howard. Curator Keith couldn't have ordered better weather nor a more congenial crowd for the event. Everyone was comfortable in the Carriage House and Jim and Annie Blum delighted the audience with their memories of the ADMIRAL in St. Louis. Annie related some of her crew experiences while Jim showed aspects of the ADMIRAL's existence which most in the crowd had never seen: the 6 Flags and casino years. He also had scenes from her demolition across the river from St. Louis. Afterwards we filled 3 tables at Kingfish and 15 river rats filled my room at the Towne Place for a post feast fest, which included shots of the Tschiggfries' European trip tracing his roots, and sad shots of the PRESIDENT's demolition in Alton. Today the remaining rats will take another trip on the BELLE this afternoon, and most likely hit Kingfish one more time.
1) Curator Keith introduces the program in the Carriage House.
2) Annie shares her crew memories.
3) Jim is showing shots of the 6 Flags era on the brand new Howard flatscreen.
