Thread Name: TAVERN STEAMBOAT Albert Hansell - Part 4
Subject: RE: TAVERN STEAMBOAT Albert Hansell - Part 4
"YES!!!!" Was the cry as Huck, Jim, Jeremy, Slick, and Miss Barky joined in a 19th-century equivalent of a high five. They scrambled to the wreck of the Mary Greene and claimed one of the Mary's big lifeboats for their own. Huck happened to have a bucket of white wash on his raft, given to him from his pal Tom...
Slick Philly picked a rather large cattail, and since he had a bit of the artist in him, was chosen to paint the new name of their boat. In a somewhat sloppy hand, Slick wrote "Sweet Angel" about the prow. Slick had a reason for naming it so...
He then joined the others in moving Huck & Jim's paraphenalia from the raft to the Sweet Angel. Jeremy and Huck stood at the ready with their oars, as Slick Philly aided Miss Barky onboard. Jim, with the pole from the raft, stood in the gunwhale and pushed them off. Now it was their goal to catch up with the Albert Hansell at all costs....
