Relaxing here in my office at the museum, I just enjoyed the last of the leftover Jambalaya for lunch on this beautiful and warm afternoon -- which certainly feels like a prelude to SPRING!

"Mr. Mel", my faithful 88 year old Friday docent at the HSM, was back on deck today, after a jaunt to Gulf Shores and New Orleans last week with family members. Mel was absolutely glowing about the Str. NATCHEZ and the exemplary red carpet southern hospitality extended by Capt. Matt Dow and the boat's terrific crew. As we all know, people on the river are happy to give! Thanks Bubba and NATCHEZ crew! You made some Jeffersonville folks MIGHTY happy!
