M/V Michael T. Somales christening, part 3

Rain or no rain, people gathered at a park along the Mon on June 20 to celebrate the christening of the M/V Michael T. Somales.\

Somales himself was there, of course, as the boat was not being renamed for him posthumously.

Somales personally greeted Robert E. Murray on his arrival. Murray owns Murray Energy, which owns the M/V Michael T. Somales.

Murray took a quick tour of the boat, including a stop in the pilothouse.

These girls were having too much fun.

And it wasn't until the other night, when I was reviewing photos to see which would be posted here, that I decided this one had to be here. Why? Because of the logo on the umbrella in the foreground.

Next: Wedding pictures.

That area between the tow-knees should have been roped off,those children should not be there.I'm very surprised to see that.I don't think you should post this,but this should not happen again.Maybe put a bug in someones ear at McGinnis.

Shortly after the girls were there, so was I. A Murray American employee asked me to move because of the danger of falling in. I noticed after that that they had people to keep visitors like me away from that area.
