Adam was disappointed this morning as he left for school. He has a couple of family reunions to attend this weekend, meaning he won't be able to go to the Point Pleasant WV river celebration, where usually at least one towboat will have an open house. He had to skip last year, too, but he got to board several earlier in the summer.
So unless something happens between now and next Labor Day weekend, he will go more than two years between opportunities to step aboard a towboat. Life is tough sometimes when you're growing up, ain't it?
