Hey all, hello from Robin Street, Just wanted to make an entry in "The Captains Log" and let you all know what's going on here. We are making great progress in getting the Magnificent Mississippi Queen ready to sail. Most of the starboard side is painted (by professional painters!) and the interior areas are being dressed up. carpet cleaned, and replaced in some areas, new drapes and fittings in passenger cabins, Mate Buford and the deck crew have been painting and cleaning in the crew holds, it is really starting to look spiffy, Mikel York, David Simmons and Teresa Eberling are all here, the best crew you could ever imagine, all seasoned lay-up veterans! Today was the first day I personally acknowledged that it was going to happen, that we were ahead in the ball game on every front, and that we will positively, without a doubt, be steamboating again soon! And yes, Chief Dennis Shenk is also here, adding his expertise to the mix, he's a cranky coot but he is a devoted steamboater and knows the MQ as well as anyone! We are glad to have him in the mix! Sales are great, but there are lots of great cruises yet to book, like the upper Mississippi, Chattanooga on the Delta Queen in the fall, and many others! Come on, what are you waiting for ,go ahead and call, I promise you, this year it will be more special than ever, we will make it that way for you, you deserve it! Staenboatin" Lives!
