Aren’t we all valets to our mini-doxies? 😉
I just stumbled across your post on Zeno serendipitously. I am living in Helsinki and just got a note from the embassy that Richard Russo would be giving a talk here next week, and it got me thinking about upstate (for the second time this summer, as I just read my colleague Kim Edwards’ book set there). I got my doctorate at Syracuse, and I really enjoyed those years, including the rare moments when I could steal away from the dissertation to read the exciting authors who were enlivening the place then. I lost touch with Syracuse folks a long time ago (except for some academic connections) but something made me google Chris Zenowich as part of that literary remembrance. He was a friend during my time there, we met through our mutual friend Lee Conant. I did not know he had died. Thank you so much for your eloquent remembrance and tribute. I am sitting in my office after every one has gone home on a rainy night when the light is fast disappearing trying not to lose the moment you created….
Rich, Thank you so much for writing. Kihm

Who would have thought? I met a woman who is now my wife 23 years ago in Seneca Falls. You are a little farther east of that, but the entire Finger Lakes area is beautiful – not to mention the wines. I have filed your site under my category of Free Thought because at first glance that’s what it appears to be.
Glad to see you joined the West site.
Ron, I myself am amazed I made it this far. Indeed, the Finger Lakes are lovely. I am truly fortunate.
I inherited a silver trophy from my great great uncle, for a Spreckels Cup 1903 annual boxing tournament held at the San Francisco Olympic Club in 1903.. He won the bantam weight. I just love it and have always wondered about the Club. Thank you for your article
I’m delighted that you found it!
Thank you. Could you tell me how many years the Spreckels Cup held the boxing tournament at the Olympic club? I have displayed this trophy for years in my home. I would love to better know the story behind it.
