Deb and I have been married just over 42 years now, so I guess 40 or 41 years ago, my Mom called Deb to let her know that a Mr. Fox called their house for Deb, and passed his number along.

Today, Deb woke my up about 15 minutes before the scheduled 1400 zulu radio net frantically telling me we were surrounded by whales, huge whales! When I appeared on deck buck naked, to see Deb pointing aft, I saw no whales. Then she turned and laughed her head off.

Both of the above events took place on April 1, and I'm reminded again of one of the many many reasons why I love Deb! By the way, when Deb called Mr. Fox, somehow, the party that answered the number Mom gave her said "Good Morning, San Diego Zoo"!!

So, back to the report, here we are grooving along with fair winds and following seas, just like all the farewell wishes we received. Thanks for that! Things couldn't be better aboard Moonshadow.
