a week, then we were asked by a Canadian "Is there a reason why you are flying the Canadian flag upside down?" Almost simultaneusly,
Tony and myself said "Zyggi!" None of us on board had even noticed, so I for one will remember and laugh at Zyggi's humor
and sometimes practical jokes. He will be missed!
