I,m very interestd in the superstitions which have haunted the steamboats. Do any of you crew folk have any stories other than the M thing? maybe Richard or Mary can remember when Mary was given that cat, Tippitywitchit, and it was on the DQ for a few days..and I was warned to shut up about the cat due to thesuperstition of somebody? It was as curious to me as it is when actors have fits if you utter the word Macbeth in a theater..You're supposed to refer to it as "The Scottish Play", but woe unto you if you say Macbeth..Anyway what's the low down on River supers?
