    Hey all,

    What fun we had at the Howard Museum the last two days with the Chautauqua and Dave's calliope! As the weekend went on, I tried to remember and play all requests we had posted on here. Dave assures me he will post them on YouTube for everyone to see (at least the ones he had the opportunity to record).

    If I forgot anything anyone wanted...next time we are near a calliope together just ask and I will gladly do it (unless I don't know it...then I will tell you a good story instead!).

    We had a great attendance from the .orgers at the house on Sunday. I had the pleasure of meeting some of our lurkers and got to see several past past passengers from my days on the DELTA QUEEN, MISSISSIPPI QUEEN, AMERICAN QUEEN, and BELLE OF LOUISVILLE. What a treat!

    After the festivities at the mansion a few of us met at Kingfish in Jeffersonville, IN for a dinner. They put us in the back room where it was a little warm (or maybe it was the sunburn I am nursing as this is written). Thanks to a great crowd of steamboaters we had some VERY lively conversation! If what we discussed actually happened...we would have solved all the worlds problems and created world peace...not to mention Saved the DELTA QUEEN! If you weren't there...we missed you.

    Next year at the Chatutauqua I think we need to put some steamboaters in a cage and let them talk about steamboatin...the public loves eavesdropping into our conversations anyway...so why not make it a sanctioned event? It should of course, be right next to the calliope...right?

    Attached are a couple of pictures I took this weekend. On Saturday Kalliope Keith emerged triumphant from his laying of hands on the keyboard of Steam CaLLiope 44. He sounded as if he never left his post as Calliopist aboard the BELLE OF LOUISVILLE. Also, I have attached a pic of the wagon with the Howard Manse in the background...there were always too many vehicles in the way to get a good picture...but, you get the idea from the pic.

    The weather was great and there were plenty of dot orgers out there, wish I could have made it out to dinner with everyone but I had something to take care of. Here's a pic of all of us with Dave and his Calliope 44!

    Good shot of your calliope, Dave, with the Mansion in the background. I've never 'met' your calliope in person - hopefully one of these days! Imagine that Keith is very busy, since he'd planned on Judy being there to help out. Jo Ann and Phillip will both be there today, so maybe they can lend a hand.......

    I'm sorry to have missed it, but can't do them all.

    David,

    Looks like I will be there...so I will play all songs requested. Only one problem...since I still don't have my computer back from the shop...I am requesting any and all suggestions, requests, inquests, and bequests be brought to me in person at the Chautauqua.

    It is really problematic for me to get online to see and answer requests at this time...thanks for understanding!

    Looking forward to seeing lots of the dot orgers this weekend!

    Travis

    Phillip, looks like you and I will be burning up the highway late Saturday to get back to Louisville, so as not to miss ALL the fun. I've got to be in Atlanta for a Bridal Shower early Saturday afternoon. But I'm thinking I can't miss Sunday at the Howard, so will have to drive back once the shower is over. Sure hate to miss Saturday though.

    If you put it on Youtube, can you do "Goodbye, Little Girl, Goodbye" for me? Thanks, Dave!

    One of my all time favorite songs on the calliope is "My Old Kentucky Home," and somewhat corny but so fun, "Take me out to the Ball Game" But if these are played please make it during the sunday afternoon performance as I have a wedding out of town Sat and will be rushing to get back in time sunday! Can't wait!

    David, if I could be there, I would surely be making my digital audio recordings for a CD! I hope somebody is able to do it.

    Okay, and if Travis will be there - ask him to play "Eli Greene's Cake Walk" a la Vic Tooker.

    Travis HAS to play the "Delta Queen Waltz," then you can all shed a tear. I sure hope someone records all this, we need a new CD to play.
    REALLY wish we could be there!
    Steamcerely,
    Linda & David D.
