Back aboard Istaboa...

...and very happy to be.
The interior project is still (begrudgingly) in the works. Seems nothing works out as one expects these days, but we're sure it will all wangle out to our liking in the end.

Today as we flew out of Memphis we circled downtown's riverfront and caught a bird's eye view of how much Ole Man River has broken from his banks. I've lived on this river my whole life and never seen it so swollen.
Made me think of an old Zeppelin tune.
If it keeps on rainin', levee's goin' to break,
When the Levee Breaks, first recorded by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie after the 1927 flood, later by Led Zeppelin

And, if it does break, my little home town in Arkansas will float away.
