    I finally got the picture I wanted!!!

    I have been trying for over 10 years to get a shot of one of these that I liked. I finally got it just the other day. I was sitting in the dinning room eating and I saw the smoke stacks out of the window, closer than I have ever seen them before so I ran and got my camera and got some great shots! I am so proud of these! We were sitting still doing tow work so they were able to pass closer than we have ever been to one of them.

    Here you go! ENJOY!

    I would highly reccomend a trip on one of them. The Mississippi River is awesome to travel, daytime or night time, there are some amazing sights and places out there and TONS of history! My Captain is a history buff on the Mississippi River and I find his stories so facinating.

    One day, maybe when I retire, I would love to take a trip on one of them. I think they stop so you can visit all the towns along the river and that is something I would love to do.

    My thoughts, exactly! I was going to say it looks just like a postcard. That is so cool.

    I did the right thing by setting you free
    But the pain is very deep.
    If only I could turn back time, forever, you I'd keep.
    I miss you


    I hear you whimper in your sleep
    I gently pet you and say, no bad dreams
    It will be alright, to my dog as dark as night.

    Fur as dark as the night.
    Join me on this flight.
    Paws of love that follow me.
    In my heart you'll forever be.
    [/SIZE]



    How I wish I could hold you near.
    Turn back time to make it so.
    Hug you close and never let go.

    Hey! I only live 2 hrs away from Blytheville. :]
    I thought the same thing, too: That should belong on a postcard!
    What a gorgeous picture, the boat looks amazing.

    It was worth the wait, Laura! What great pictures.

    A friend of mine from high school took a job, after college, on one of these boats. She was a hostess or something, I think, for a couple of years, and loved it.

    One day, I would love to cruise the MIssissippi on one of these boats, too.
