Dry period again

Sorry for several days of no posting, but life gets in the way of blogging sometimes. I can say that a nine-month-old baby can eat into your time something powerful. My wife says the kid used to go through 2.1 adults per day, but that's up to 3.7 now.

Traffic on the river has been light during the times I've been able to get down there. Today I did see a boat that I hadn't seen before: the M/V Capt. Kirby DuPuis.

The other day I was on the iPhone checking Ohio River lock activity when I noticed some boat ID numbers had hyperlinks attached to them. So I clicked one to see what information would come up. Next thing I knew, my phone dialpad came up on the screen and I heard a phone ringing, so I hung up immediately.

Speaking of which, how do you "hang up" when there is no handpiece and no hook to hang anything on? But "hang up" sound more colorful than "ended the call," you know?
