Riverboat Cruise

My son, Brandon, asked me to go with him to a company dinner the other night so of course I couldn't very well turn him down because he hardly ever asks me to go anywhere with him. The event took place on the riverboat the Arkansas Queen. We got a dinner cruise on the Arkansas River and a prime rib dinner. Not bad. One of his co-workers snapped this picture for us. I'm amazed how much Brandon favors me as an adult. He used to as a baby, but I didn't realize that he still did until I saw this picture of us side by side.

This is a picture that I took of the sunset through the old Union Pacific railroad bridge that spans the river. Beautiful.

This submarine is the USS Razorback. It is a WWII sub that is now permanantly docked in Little Rock. They have it set up so that people can go down inside of it and take tours and stuff. I hear it's pretty neat, but I've never gone inside. It's not my thing.

Well, I've got some errands to run today. I guess I'll get to them. The boys are content watching the baseball play offs. It's that time of year already. I get in alot of good knitting time while Tony watches baseball.
