RIverNotes: Mom & Pop on the Mississippi
The Captain ordered groceries for the boat this morning and at about 1700 hours an aluminum skiff from S&S Boat Store out of Burlington Iowa, tied up alongside the Theresa Wood and delivered food.
"They probably don't remember," said Captain Rusty Joyner, "but I'll never forget it."
The pilot, Tim Richards, has a favorite boat store too, the River View Boat Store out of Bellview, Iowa, owned by a man named Jeremy. Richards said one time he got off the boat there, but the company he worked for didn't have a contract with a taxi service to get him to the airport. So Jeremy called up his dad, who drove Richards to the airport.
