Some odds and ends while we await your next posting
Ted. Keith reminded me of the communications guy on the
pre trip. I ran into him in downtown Wabasha. You know
what he was looking for? A pay phone! Keith also
remembered the stories about the lockmen cutting the
grass in the middle of the night and doing other
touchup work on such short notice. As for Lexie and
her sign, she felt guilty leaving me on shore as she
got to ride overnight on the DQ, so when I came aboard
in St.L, she handed me a photo of the President, Capts
Martin and Fehlig in the PH autographed "to Judy, Jimmy
Carter". Its front and center on my coffee table. Under
that table I have the scrapbook I put together from the
newspaper coverage. I had people from all over the
country send me stuff, I think I ended up with 39
different newspapers represented. I made 3 scrapbooks:
one for myself, one for Capt. Martin,and one for the
boat. I put the one on the boat during the fall foliage
cruise. Ted, did you ever see it? My suspicions are
that it ended up in the Interlocutor's room, but I was
hoping that other people had seen it first. Pete: was
339 your grandfather's usual room? Ted: Who else was
on the crew? Keith and I came up with Mate Dick and
Nancy Webber, but who was Chief Engineer? Was Louise
still on that year? And your fellow pursers?
