Subject: Re: 1979 Delta Queen Presidential trip


Quite a few years ago, one of my students told me that he would be a little late returning from his either xmas? or Easter? vacation because he was going to attend hisfather's wedding, 2nd I guess.When he reutrned, he showed me the pix of the wedding of Henry Mitchell Jr. and Margie Simonton! I said, Mark! I know these people!!" He asked how? I said "from the Delta Queen!" He was astonished and said, "Oh,wow, Miss Greene, were YOU on the Delta Queen before?" I smiled ...and said "Yeah..I took a trip or two on there." And then I remembered when that very Mark was born...Henry Jr. was then the bar tender and was passing out cigars for the birth of his son. I, of course, took one and lit up..but I didn't tell his son 17 yrs later that history...just let him believe that I had taken a few trips.
