Anyone know a guy named Ronnie Hart down your way?? I used to work with him on the river back from 1990 to 1991. He started a daycare I'm thinking he called it, "Tender Hart Daycare." Ronnie looks like a mountain man, hell of a good man.

Your looking for Ronald Hart, not sure if he is still here, might of moved to jonesboro, that is where his wife works.
day care shut down in '96 or '97.. bad deal, on friday when the parents went to pick the kids up, they were told then they were closing the doors and would not be open monday.. pissed alot of parents off... 5 o'clock on friday and you have to have a child care monday AM, day cares are not open on the weekends. They didnt want to give notice, afraid the parents would find somewhere and they wouldnt get the money the last week they were open.

The M/v Co-op Ambassador. Rode with a Olen Wilson also. They busted up our crews at Artco and I went to the M/V American Beauty.

I have never meet as many back stabbing, 2 faced people in my life as out on the river. Once I got a Mates job I could not figure out why people wanted the freaking job for a few more dollars a day. Just give me a set of tools and I tighten wires. You know what I mean??

Tugboat a.k.a. "Rastous.' I figured he could not give up working on the river. I miss it myself but am disabled now so that part of my life is just a memory now. I always enjoyed working with Ronnie. Tell the ole 'Pumpkin Head' JR said Hi!
