… at least for a couple of days. A trip to the KVK was in order, with an active morning to keep me busy.

We see them every day, the low profile tugs, Gramma Lee T Moran, Robert E McAllister, Eric McAllister and more. Some have come for a short stay and are now working elsewhere. A few years ago McAlister had them labeled “Tractor Tug”

Also today, Friday 20th 2015, my mother Stella Skelson is celebrating her 100th birthday. As she grew up right near the KVK, she has stories to tell of what she has seen in her time, including the burned out hull of the Normandie headed for scrap.

Happy Birthday Mom.
