“We are more than half way through our cruise, and the food is running low. Last evening, Annie told us there were no more chips. She’s from Wisconsin, so I suppose chips do not include Cheetos. Those appeared today as usual. This morning she put out a single grapefruit. Carin snagged it, saying she was going to save it for tomorrow. She also said she would give half to John the Bosun. I think she hopes in turn he will share his grapefruit knife. This could be our last grapefruit until we return to the hot, sunny coves of Dutch Harbor. Or perhaps another grapefruit will appear tomorrow.”
