Hey, Ted & Keith: Thanks for the 'reminder' Re: the DQ's then new calliope. Gosh, has it been that many years ago? Got big 'press' here in 'Rag Town' and there was even a 'Calliope Duel' between the DQ & AVALON. Can't recall the exact date for the 'duel' but it was still miserable weather. The DQ was at the GL wharfboat and the AVALON tied off on the lower end. Seems to me Doc Hawley played for the contest on the AVALON suited up in a long yellow slicker and I can't remember who played on the DQ. Jane may remember if it was part of a Mardi Gras departure. Keep the 'factoids' comin' from that calendar. Keith ranks as one of the best on the 'steam piannie.' Cheers & keep warm--Brrrrr, R. Dale Flick
