i thought a couple of the barge/towboat guys might appreciate this, a retired Missouri River ferry. made it's last voyage in 1963 & suprisingly the whole boat is open to the public to snoop around so i took a couple pics in the engine room. they just finished restoring the paddle wheel a couple weeks ago
All I've had today is like 6 gummi bears & some scotch
little range time today.. my .40 at 25yds. could be better. guess i need to shoot more
I have been a silent witness
to all of America's finest hours.
But my finest hour comes
when I am torn into strips and used as bandages
for my wounded comrades on the battlefield,
When I fly at half-mast to honor my soldiers,
Or when I lie in the trembling arms
of a grieving mother
at the graveside of her fallen son.
