Capt. Mike,

What a great message. Anyone without goosebumps might as well head inland, cause they don't get it!

I'm indeed envious, but I'm feeling kind of lucky myself this evening, which I'm spending in Sacramento aboard the Delta King.

It's sad that the King has been guitted, but fantastic that it's afloat, back in its original home, and welcoming guests. Considering it was under water in the early 80s, not a bad comeback.

What are the odds that both the King and Queen would still live, 75 years after their debuts? Must be about a million to one, and we're all luckier for it!
