Subject: Re: 1979 Delta Queen Presidential trip


The President and Mrs. Carter also did "photo-ops" with the passengers, I have a photo copy of a picture of both my grandparents with President and Mrs. Carter, and my cousin Vicki, which both the Carter's autographed, I believe my cousin Karen or Vicki should still have that picture. As I recall my Grandfather Zahn saying, there was a reception line in the Aft Cabin Lounge, now the Betty Blake Lounge. I do know that my cousins were up late one night "playing" with Amy, and the President came into the room in his underwear and undershirt scolding them to be quiet. I recall my grandmother hearing of the incident and apologizing to the Carters, to which they saw no fault. I know that the Carter's ate at least a meal or two with my grandparents, and as I recall my grandparents being interviewed by the Milwaukee Sentinal about their meetings, and as they always said, they were very down to earth, nice people.
