Floating like a log

Another thing to put on you list of things to not do in the Ohio River: Grab a log and float along for a while. Things turned out okay for these two teens, but it could have been a lot worse.

Be sure to read the comments to get more on the story.

In the Waterways Journal

Several people have written me to compliment my photos in last week's edition of the Waterways Journal. I haven't seen them yet, as my copy is still in the mail. I thank everyone for the compliments.

By the way, Adam has started putting towboat photos on another wall in his bedroom. So far, he's put up 14, with more to come after he discovers a stash I've been hiding. The boats so far: Detroit (3), Mary Ellen Jones, Chuck Zebula, Paula Ruble, Steven J. Mason, AEP Mariner, Buckeye State, Hoosier State, D.A. Grimm, Bill Stile, Aliquipppa, Tennessee Hunter. We have another that I'll be putting up as soon as I get an 8 x 10 copy and a frame. I'll post a photo of that, as it's special.

This weekend, Adam is supposed to meet someone who works on one of those boats. The guy is the husband of someone Adam's grandmother works with. It could be an interesting conversation.
