A Shout-Out to Claude Scales.

From the shores of Lake Superior - the last steam-driven tugboat to operate on the Great Lakes: the Edna G. She's still in operating condition, with a hull reinforced for icebreaking, but was retired in the early eighties.

Just thought of you when I saw her this morning, Claude.

Hey, TK,

Thanks so much, buddy. She's a rare beauty. It took me a while to find your post, since I hadn't checked your blog in a while as it seemed to have fallen into desuetude. I'm delighted that you're posting again.

Best wishes to you and to your bride-to-be.

Thanks, Claude! I'm a little surprised you found it so quickly, but I figured well-wishes aren't the kind of sentiment that come with a quick expiration date.

I am reanimating the blog, slowly, as time allows.

Thanks for the well-wishes, Claude. I'll pass them on.

And thanks for stopping by, Hipparchia and Arch. Not so cold this time of year, up there. Quite nice, really.
