A very special day

Adam and I attended the dedication and open house of the AEP towboat mv. Hoosier State. Enough happened to fill several blog entries, which it probably will. Today was a day of escalating surprises.

First, we enjoyed the open house.

We couldn't attend the christening ceremony itself, as it was for AEP employees and invited guests only, but we staked out a spot to see the champagne bottle being smashed.

As we were walking to the car, and AEP employee ran up to invite us on a short ride on the boat, which we accepted. Here's Adam on the starboard tow knee.

The high point came when ....

Yeah, that's Adam steering the boat. He's making a 180-degree turn to bring the boat back to the dock.

It was a very good day. More later.
