This week, day job requirements prevented me from sallying forth and grubbing around for new content. That being so, we are sending you to one of the all time favorite CornDancer Photo of the Week pages and its attendant post on our blog, Weekly Grist for the Eyes and Mind. The subject of both is the fabled Delta Queen, which we captured on her last southbound trip on the Mississippi River.
As we suspected at the time, the Queen's trip on the Great River during the fall of 2008 would be her last. Period. End of story. However, the old girl gained a reprieve of sorts and is now moored in the Tennessee River as the Delta Queen Hotel in Chattanooga. Some, but not all of the panache is preserved. She is like a world class performer housed in a velvet cage.
Wanna read the original story? Just click the whistling pilot house and smokestack at the top of this paragraph. A link will take you there.

Most of the time, there is more to the Photo of the Week story than can be told in an essay. And most of the time there are more pictures to be seen. Presuming that some folk will enjoy being privy to this trove of information, I have created a blog, “Weekly Grist for the Eyes and Mind,” where I am showing and telling “the rest of the story." There are also some blatantly commercial mentions of some of the things we do to earn our beans and taters. Click on the Weekly Grist logo and go to the blog. — J. D.
