2009 Blog Review and Highlights

In 2009, this blog had the privilege of having over 6,300 visitors with over 12,000 page views.  Having just started in late December of 2008, I was pleased and want to thank all who stopped by for a peek and of course all of you who might be so bored that you feel compelled to follow the ramblings of a somewhat deranged Towboat Captain on the "Mid-West Coast".

There were a total of 99 posts in 2009 and I recalled the top four which I felt were the most fun for me and seemed to be visited the most.  There is no order in these selections, there was no vote - (only mine) and they have no particular meaning other than to take up space on this post - -.

#1 - January 18 - Classic Lady - - Down  A story about the sinking and loss of a Classic Chris Craft cruiser

#2 - May 2 - BUI- Boating Under the Influence - Recipe for Arrest - This somewhat "tongue in cheek" story kicked off our BUI tows for the season which turned out to be quite numerous.

#3 - May 25 - Be Careful What You wish For! - This really fun story, which actually had its roots in a post back on April 25th (Who you gonna Call - COON BUSTERS)  told the tale and lead to the "movie" about the "removal" of a Raccoon from a boat.  Yup, we don't get out much here in Missouri - - it was also the rise and fall of my brief movie career - -:(  Please hold the applause until the end of the post - -

#4 - July 7 - Negotiation 101 - A Blond Story - This story depicts a typical day for one of our boat captains and details some of the hardships he must endure - - - - - - - -  yeah - right -
