It's not really a Christmas tradition, but usually on Dec. 25 I like to go out to the river and see who's working this day. Someone has to be on the boats, I guess, and I have heard that some folks stop running for a little while to let the crew enjoy Christmas dinner, call home, rest and do whatever for a few hours.
I'll have more photos later this week, but here's one of two deckhands who have been out on the barges of the C.J. Queenan.
Again, more later in the week. It's getting late and I have to go back to work tomorrow.
