    I was pretty good at Donkey Kong.
    My favorite game was probably Marble Madness.

    We got close a few times. When I was in Palo Alto for my mother's final illness we almost got together. That "almost" lingers as a sign of PoHo friendship. I was happy that it could even have been a thing.

    Tack's journey in Italy and then to the Field are some of the earliest PoHo stories I remember. We've suffered parental passages together, helped some on their way to bigger and better things (Mim, UE, who else?), watched James grow up, and held your hand in this health crisis.

    I don't take being a PoHo for granted.

    I have spent most of this morning out in my garage, sorting and cleaning my tools and home repair stuff. I got a couple of boxes emptied, put some stuff in the trash, and sorted some to be recycled.

    It doesn't look a lot different, I guess, but things are better organised, now. All this is in preparation for much-needed downsizing. We thought we had done a pretty good job of it when we moved, but it became immediately obvious another round (or two!) were needed.

    I can tell, already, that it will be very hard to let go of essentially all of my tools when we move to our apartment in Florida. I have collected these tools over my lifetime, and have taken pride in what I can accomplish with them. There will just be no room, and no need for all these tools down there.

    sigh....
