One can still buy coonskin caps at Disneyland. Sadly, there are no longer prominent as time and taste has changed cultural icons. My wife, however, did launch into "Born on a mountain top in Tennessee..." upon seeing one.


Greenest state in the land of the free. Though Al Gore was not born there.

He had his own song, yes.

Listen to the thunder, here the winds roar,
Hurricane's a'comin' -board up the door.
Load up the cannon, call out the law,
Worstest calamity that folks ever saw.
Girls run and hide, strong men shiver,
I'm Mike Fink, King of the River.

My sister would agree with me. But I got all the old photos and films, I copy them and sent them to her. She found a good place that will transfer 8mm film to dvd, and edit it. I might do that. As much as I can afford, anyway.

Saw Fink's boat, or a replica thereof, just four days ago. Whilst journeying on the Mark Twain.

It was a Disney thing, Davy Crockett's Keel Boat Race is about a riverboat race between Davy and another American folklore hero Mike Fink. As I remember it was serialized for TV presentation into a few parts.

Now, if it started as Fink's boat, and was replaced piece by piece over time until no pieces that were originally part of the boat are still part of the boat, is it still the same boat or not?

Two.

Fink was played by Jeff York, who, years before, had been Pat Ryan (under his real name) in the TERRY AND THE PIRATES serial.

It is the same -- at least at Disneyland.
