 Diary of a Tramp on The River...


It's a relaxing thing, he thought, cruising on the Mighty Mississippi River.


The shoreline, covered with thick Eden-like jungles of beautifully green trees, seems to beckon one to stop and spend some time.  But, of course, you don't.  You're on board a paddlewheel steamship, waited on hand and foot by a retinue of highly trained wait staff, equally high trained pursers, tour guides, entertainers  . .  . it's a happy ship and a happy time.


He didn't want to go at first.  It was Her idea.  He fought it . . . but then they made the first trip two years ago, out of New Orleans.  And he was persuaded.  These cruises are fun . . . many memories to be made.


She had made the reservations for this trip without seeking his approval.  His approval was quickly granted.  He's a quick learner.
