Two boats

This afternoon I had to go into town, and while I was there I saw two boats passing Huntington.

First was the Paul G. Blazer upbound. I rarely see this boat around here.

Second was the Mae Etta Hines.

As I looked at the nameboard, I had the terrible idea that maybe someone whose daughter was born in the town at the mouth of the Muskingum River in Ohio might name here after the city of her birth: Mary Etta. Okay, bad pun. But it's the kind of thing that goes through my head.
