Thank you Jundo. Made me think of a poem I read recently and it seems to fit.
Subhuti recalling a poem by Buddha:
"Whole body like a mouth, hanging in space
Not asking if the wind is east, west, south or north.

Thank you Jundo for all you do...
Thank you Jundo, Gassho.
Deep bows to you Jundo, thank you.
Thank you Jundo
btw, that was neat how you scheduled the helicopter fly over,very effective
Thank you, Jundo.
That was truly wonderful, Jundo!
Jundo did not schedule the helicopter to come - he conjured it up! Zen Masters have super powers!
That was my first pick but knowing what a humble zen master we have; I didn't want to blow his cover
