Catching up: Marathon triple christening, 10-8-2019, part 1

It's taken a while, but computer problems are behind me (I hope). This is the first of two installments of photos from the christening ceremony of the motor vessels Patoka, Mt. Vernon and Kenova at the Marathon dock at Catlettsburg, Kentucky, back on October 8.

This installment is of the boats and stuff. The next one will be of people I saw that day. There might be a third installment with some other pictures. I don't want to overload one post with too many pics.

Anyway, here goes:

I don't know when the next installment will be. My best guess is that it will be in a few days as I catch up with a bunch of stuff.


After years of having an Instagram account but never posting anything, last night I made the jump and put up a few photos. I'm at @jimross90 if anyone wants to take a look. There's one Ohio River photo on there now with more to come.

I'll be able to post more after I have my new computer repaired. The thing will run Lightroom but not an internet browser, so the posting I do is done on my wife's computer. That gets old really quick, even if her machine is a lot better than the one I have.

Next weekend I plan to post a longer piece about a historical artifact I've wanted to see and how have in my possession. It's not a world-changing or highly sought item, but it's important to me for reasons I hope to share next weekend.
