Coming up

Two things I hope to post in the next few days:

1. Adam came home from school today with a headache. He didn't want anything to do with anything electronic. So he went to his room, grabbed a few pieces of Star Wars Legos and built a couple of simple towboats, including wing wires for the barges. He took some pictures. After I download and crop them, I might post a couple. Meanwhile, we'll have to dig up some more Legos pieces to make another boat or two.

2. Sometime early this month -- I don't know the exact day yet -- I rode the mv. Tri-State of Ashland Oil from Neale Island near Parkersburg, W.Va., to Kenova, W.Va. The highlight was locking through the old Gallipolis Locks and Dam after dark. Somewhere in my archives is the article I wrote on that trip. Once I dig it out, I'll have to summarize it.
