Howard Steamboat Museum on Youtube
The Clark-Floyd Counties Convention & Tourism Bureau recently sent a crew to the HSM to make a promotional video. Their goal was to especially feature local tourism sites and showcase those which are presided over by people with longevity and a passion for their work.

Go to Youtube and type in [B]Howard Steamboat Museum "My Sunnyside". [/B]

There is also a video on Schimpff's Confectionery, with a "sweet history" in downtown Jeffersonville since 1891. Jill & Warren Schimpff are great people and loyal supporters of the HSM.

Thanks for looking!

Very good, Keith. That was a great promo for the museum and under you leadership the place never looked better. Keep up a full head of steam!

Most enjoyable, Keith. Keep up the good work.

Great job, Keith! You make a really good spokesperson.

Many thanks, one and all, for your kind and complimentary comments! Sitting there with those BRIGHT lights in my face and "wearing a wire" for half an hour was a new, but fun, experience! The Louisville Convention & Visitors Bureau made a similar video two weeks ago, but it was done with me interviewed at the pilotwheel of the towboat ED J. HOWARD. Of course, much was edited from both productions, as they also had me tell about my six summers as a crew member on the BELLE of LOUISVILLE and one season on the DELTA QUEEN, writing the Old Boat Column for [I]The Waterways Journal[/I], etc. Yammering on and on about my "past" for these productions made me truly realize just how long I've been involved with the river and steamboating ---and how OLD I am!

THANKS again!

HI Keith: Twice now I've seen you posting about your age, I'd give a lot to be just 60 again. You will have to move faster to catch me. Here's how I do it, every morning I read the death notices, if my names not there I just go to work as usual. Think young!!

Tom Schiffer 06-03-2014 08:55 AM

Yeah, Keith, oh to be 60 again! We've got 19 years on you! Like Bill, when I see the green side of the grass in the morning I start in again...and if you think you are busy now, wait'll you can do ANYTHING you want to like me...busier than ever and that hasta be 'cause it takes a LOT longer to get ANYTHING done! Still don't have my steamer in the river, big event coming up in mid June, new lathe coming tomorrow for my machine shop, new steamer not up and running yet...
But I agree with Jimmy, Keith...great job! Cap'n Walnut
