To paraphrase the line about the chanteuse grosse and something “being over,”  I couldn’t really feel

that I was back until the

the fat lady came into port, then the big orange PCTC must be she.    Topeka entered the sixth boro this morning, here escorted by Gramma Lee T Moran and Margaret Moran.

It turns out that Topeka and

Tortugas, which I saw just over two weeks ago in Panama, could not be more similar.  Both were built in Nagasaki in 2006, registered in Southhampton, and have a car-carrying capacity of 6354 automobiles!
