    Hi, Jack, It’s Marge Wheaton. It was wonderful reading this story. I remember often the funny times I had with you 40-something years ago! I just stumbled on your site today. If you’re interested in what I’ve been up to, it’s all out on my website: I’d love to hear from you again. I guess you remember, too, because I found my name in your list of people you want to write about!

      Well!! Marge!! How nice you should bump into my post. I took a one-minute peak at your website and quickly saw you went way beyond our early explorations of the Deep. Love to hear more about that. We did have a lot of fun, to say the least. (You were a Sky Roamer, too, right, or did we just meet in the islands? I’m pretty sure you flew with us as well – but, as you said, it’s been more than 40 years.) I’ll check you out further on your web. (Oh, I’ll try to let you know when I write about US.)

        I was a Sky Roamer and we met on my first dive in Freeport after I’d taken the three-hour course at the hotel–whose name escapes me now. I think the dive operation was UNEXSO, but that was 4th of July weekend in 1969. With your invaluable encouragement, I got my C-card in January 1970 from the West Side YMCA, and as they say, the rest is history.
