    Cap'n Walnut.......is MISSIE jealous of this new "gal" in your life. To bad the creeks up or I am sure you'd have company looking to deck for you this weekend.

    Hope we see you and your new lady friend on the river soon.

    David: At least it is blue and not blew! MISSIE is blue too...mud drums intact, though...so far!

    John: MISS BLUE won't get her new rod 'til late this week...then a sneak trip to Big Bone for a shake-down. I ran her a bit in Florida but had trouble keeping up steam...I cannot see into the firebox I'm firing! She burns wood. THEN, a trip up the Licking or ???...Cap'n Walnut

    A wood-burner, eh? I'll be keeping a watch on the Rabbit Hash horizon for tiny puffs of steam and my ears open for the sounds of a strange steam whistle in the valley.

    Sam: You on watch all week? Last time (July 3, 09; 'bout 3PM) I blew for the GVII, she dozed right on thru it! The "new" whistle is a Cedric Witham, Laconia, NH.ca 1988.

    Lord Willing, I'll be keeping the daylight covered through the 12th of August. All the excitement is on the inside expect for Thursday thru Sunday when the outdoors Tiki Deck (4th) is jumping; so unless someone notifies the Knowledge Box, such grand events, as your esteemed presence, could go unappreciated.

    Tom, think if we scrap the wood and replace it with a few lumps of good ol' eastern Kentucky cannel coal we could get that sucker up on a plane?
    I really think Harrods Creek would be a perfect stream for a shakedown cruise.

    Jim: If them there alligators in Fla din't make her git up on plane, don't reckon cannel coal will do it!

    Harrods Creek sounds good, but I wanna know that her rod is right and tight before I go.
