Default For His Gal Pals?

Will the right answer to your query garner another Snickers Bar, or better yet, a 5th of Ole Betty?

The origin of Captain, Old Doc, Carr's bandanna neckerchiefs is unknown to me, but his colorful hankies served as his own identifying personal trademark. He had a load of 'em, too, that he presented to his many favorite gal pals in much the same way a newcomer by the name of Elvis Presley did later .

Cap'n Carr, undoubtedly, was one of the most colorful steamboatmen I worked with. But six years before we were working together on the deck of the DELTA QUEEN, I first met his acquaintance, by chance, one dark night at a Wood River fuel dock; perhaps one of the few times the DELTA QUEEN and the AVALON were tied side-by-side at a landing other than one of the regular Ports of Call.
