Girl Power


  Something you may not know about The Radiotelegrapher is that I can account for a couple of thousand miles traveled in my Grumman canoe. Today to celebrate my birthday (51!), my little girl Fawn and I took a  trip up and down the Chicago river. We paddled from the northside down into The Chicago loop. Passing through a canyon of skyscrapers I was pleasantly surprised to learn that Fawn is a courier de bois in her own right and that she also pulls like an outboard motor. Highlights of the trip included a stop at Navy Pier and a downpour.

    Happy B day Tom,Good work with the canoe. I’ve always wanted one of my own. We did some sea kyaking for a couple seasons years ago but eventually got rid of them. Lots of fun but a pain to load up and get to the water.Much easier for me to just hop on one of my bikes.-Mike

    Happy Birthday! Looks like we have quite the nautical family. Great to see the outboard motor Fawn pulling away!

    Sure wish the back was able to still paddle a canoe. Brings back good memories of days past gone.
