Default Happy Birthday Capt. Wagner!

Today, August 4, 2010 marks the 100th birthday of Capt. Ernie Wagner! This legendary man needs no introduction to all of us that read these threads. I'm a former summertime employee of the DQ in the early 70's. These were the years of Ernie at his best, and even though I'm a "fence sitter" on these threads, I couldn't let this day get by us all.

Here are some of my memories:
1. Cap doing TV Interview during 1970 "Save The Queen" campaign.
2. Cap in pilothouse.
3. Probably my favorite picture of him. A bright Summer evening in the pilothouse, spread-out on the lazy bench, stogie in hand... LIFE IS GOOD!
