Overnight a couple more loopers docked at Midway Marina mile 394 on the Tenn Tom so now there are 7 looper boats.  We departed the dock @ 7:20 & headed for Fulton Lock the first of 3 we transited today, the other 2 being Wilkins Lock & Amory Lock.  The day’s travel was only 36 statute miles but because of the lock waits we didn’t arrive until about 3:00 PM.  Upon arrival the dock cocktail party started.  I was updating the ship’s log & doing my due dillagence while YOU-KNOW-WHO was right in the middle of the female instigations.  Supper consisted of appetizers & more appetizers.  No need to cook.

The group were fun to be with.  All day long the men were hacking it up on the VHF channel 72.  After docking the women took over the conversation.  It was a nice day & fun night.  It’s especially comforting to be with other loopers in this stretch of poor scenery, many locks (12) & long stretches between marinas or anchorages.  Tonight we are @ Aberdeen Marina & tomorrow we hope to be at Columbus Marina in Columbus Miss.
