The Stones concert tonight was a great experience to add to the Paddlefish memory banks! We had Georgia leading us in some warm-up tunes on the way down the Allegheny; we had Meg, the Australian cattle dog, along for the ride; we had a little Pearl Jam singalong to "Where Oh Where Can My Baby Be"; we had our new-best-friends in the motorboat with their incessant concern about our bathroom habits; we had Ada leading us in uno-dos-tres; and we had, as Ada put it, "Bob was boogie-woogie back there."

You were totally boogie-woogie, Bob. Thanks for taking on the stress and responsibility of steering (including the escape from the barge) for tonight's adventure.

Perri just pointed out the following excerpt from the Post-Gazette coverage of the Stones concert last night -- think the youthful fans referenced in paragraph two are the Paddlefish?

"Rock fans without tickets spread picnics on the sloping lawns outside the outfield stands and sipped beers stretched out on yoga mats on the Clemente Bridge. The guitar strains of the Stones and Pearl Jam, the opening act, carried across the rivers and could be heard as far away as Mount Washington.

More than 100 boats anchored on the Allegheny River by the stadium, including a group of about 20 children and two chaperones who paddled up in a canoe."
