Default Merry Christmas! A Holiday Whistle Salute!

MERRY CHRISTMAS and BEST WISHES FOR A BLESSED NEW YEAR to all the great people who post upon and read this message board, so generously provided by Franz, Carmen and, of course, Capt. Leonie! This medium has undoubtedly brought many river minded people together who otherwise probably would never have met. I treasure the new friendships made through Steamboats.Org and look forward to many more! Thanks!

Here's hoping that 2009 will be a brighter year in all ways and I look forward to seeing many of you at the steamboat museum. Happy Holidays to ALL, a whistle salute to herald the new year and may God bless us every one.

Keep up steam!

In this season of lights, herewith are photos featuring a watercolor of the Str. BECKY THATCHER aglow at St. Louis, and the Str. BELLE OF LOUISVILLE on a cruise at sunset in 1972. The frigid image of yours truly with the BELLE in the snow and ice was taken by my dad in 1989 when I was still a "youngster" of 35!
