The Hubs and I often have deep and meaningful conversations, especially on Saturday mornings when we’re trying to decide what we want to do besides eat breakfast…
The Hubs: “What do you want to do?”
Me: “I don’t know. What do you want to do?”
The Hubs: “You can’t answer a question with a question.”
We finished eating breakfast in relative silence, both of us checking our cell phones and sending each other goofy jokes. Yeah, we’re those people.
Then I saw a tweet from Visit Cape announcing that the MV Mississippi would be docked in Cape Girardeau and they’d be holding an open house. So I casually mentioned to The Hubs that we should go check it out. The MV Mississippi is the largest diesel towboat in the U.S. operating on the Mississippi River.
I don’t know what I was expecting… Maybe something that looked like the tugboat from the children’s story, Scuffy the Tugboat, I don’t know. But what we saw was something much more grandiose:

I’d like to thank the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers for providing us with a fun and informational tour of the MV Mississippi.
