*REFLECTORS are on the way*
Steamboatin' colleagues,
Before the angst sets in over possibly late arriving December, 2015 S&D REFLECTORS word just in that Jeffery Spear, S&D President and Marietta, Ohio resident, has been informed he may "pick up the extra copies [i.e. overrun in printing] from 'Richardson Printing Co.'. The December issue is on the way. Naturally, this depends on delivery by your local U.S. Post Office. As one sage riverman says, "I'm busy and when it arrives then I sit down and read."

Wishing you all a safe, healthy, prosperous holiday season and HAPPY NEW YEAR! 2016.
