    I love this for many reasons, first I love the water and boats, second it’s a great portayal of hardworking people and last, my husband calls me becky sue, even though my middle name is not sue. Don’t ask.

  • Thanks Rebecca, love the water too, the Mississippi is the source of my city, don’t worry about the Becky Sue, I won’t ask about your middle name! Just glad you liked the pic!!!
