McKnight vision

Norm Chow had just stepped off the bus in El Paso when he was told there was somebody waiting to meet with him.

Unexpected visitors had become habit since Chow had been named UH’s head coach a week earlier. (He was allowed to finish his duties as Utah’s offensive coordinator by coaching in the Sun Bowl in El Paso.) But Chow had been told there was something unique about this visit: The guy had driven a truck 725 miles from San Diego to drop off an application for a UH coaching job.

“That was different,” Chow recalled.

And that was when Chow met Dennis McKnight, who had two stints (1999-2001 and 2006-2007) as a UH assistant coach.

Chow did not hire McKnight, but came away impressed with the effort.

McKnight coaches the offensive line for Lamar, which plays UH this Saturday at Aloha Stadium. The Cardinals arrive on Thursday, which is McKnight’s 53rd birthday.

LizKauai can’t make the UH-Lamar game so she’s giving away her ticket. If you want to enter the drawing for the ticket, post: Aloha, Liz.

Liz will pick a winner.

Happy birthday to bighilofan2.

  3. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 7:54 am

    I don’t understand why McKnight is no longer coaching with June Jones. What happened?

  4. Buffoman September 10, 2012 7:56 am

    Top 5!

  5. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 7:57 am

    So Chow faces 2 coaches who were somehow associated with JJ: McKnight and Rolovich.

    Should be interesting to watch.

  6. Ipu Man September 10, 2012 8:01 am

    Lamar also has a 5-star Abilene high school recruit, running back sophomore Herschel Sims.

    He rushed for 83 yards on 13 carries for over a six yard average. They also got another

    running back named, GARRET, who carried 16 times for 79 yards, both done in their last game.

  7. Ipu Man September 10, 2012 8:03 am

    Lamar totaled 432 yards and their qb Mossakowski passed 21-30…

  8. Na Koa Mike September 10, 2012 8:04 am

    Photos of the Kickoff Party and Tailgate party prior to the USC game are now up. A number of former Rainbows and Warriors were in attendence including Gary Allen, David Toloumu, Nick Clark, Dwayne Jett and Tim Grasso.

  9. Ipu Man September 10, 2012 8:05 am

    Granted they played a small school but Texas is Texas…

    Hawaii-San Diego St in San Diego on Oct. 6: @$22 each for 40 yard line SIDELINE SEATS in the Plaza level one level above the field (or $16 for 20 yard line 15-24 rows up from the field) all behind our Warriors bench (UH ticket office price is $26 each). FIREWORKS SHOW right after the game! This will be a critical conference game and our boys need your support; so far we have almost 200 Warrior fans in our group; including former star RB of UH/Dallas Cowboys Gary Allen, punter Tim Grasso & kicker Dan Kelly of the 2007 team, Stephen “Gonzo” Gonzales (former leading tackler UH MLB in the late 90’s) & families of Sean Schroeder, Trevor Davis and Jared Leaf.

    Hawaii-Fresno St in Fresno on Nov. 3: I have 50 yard sideline seats right behind our Warrior bench for $60 each in Section 31; rows 9 thru 12—you can reach out and touch the players! This will be another critical conference game; so far we have almost 80 Warrior fans in our group.

    Be wary of any teams from Texas. There’re so many talented football players there. Not all of them can play for Big-12 or SEC schools. Not that bad of a journey for Lamar – 90 min bus ride to Houston, then hop on a direct 7.5 hour flight to HNL.

  21. Da Punchbowl Kid September 10, 2012 8:23 am

    Good Morning Gangeez!

    McKnight is truly an original. Best of luck to him where ever he Coaches. (Except for this Saturday of course. )

    I saw McKnight at San Souci Beach earlier this summer. Da buggah looked like he can still strap it on and go!

    As Wafan noted on Saturday’s post, 99club hit it on the mark when he said:

    “Don’t let them score a point, especially early. We don’t want to deal with a heady Lamar”…

    in reference to the old Hollywood gossip columnist.

    That was so funny.

    It’s quite obvious from both McKnight’s efforts to be on staff and his comments in the article that he loves Hawaii for more than just its football.

    Welcome back Coach McKnight. Hopefully you will fulfill your wish and make Hawaii your permanent home. If not Side Street, how about Da Kitchen?

    I remember Texas A&I years ago. We were prohibitive favorites to win! We didn’t.

    So let’s not take Lamar lightly.

    Hedley Lamarr was the character in Blazing Saddles! Great movie!

  39. ewamongoose September 10, 2012 9:32 am

    And Texas A&I didn’t just win, they creamed Hawaii. But Lamar s no Texas A&I.

  53. Old School Dave September 10, 2012 10:20 am

    #39- Tommui: I remember Texas A & I coming to Aloha Stadium in 1975. They had a guy returning kicks who was 6.2 220 lbs and ran a 9.7 100 yd (not meters) dash. He ran back 1 or 2 kickoffs for a score. I also remember a fan asking Larry Price on his radio show why UH didn’t have such players. Price replied: In Hawaii we’d probably have a guy with that speed, but he’d be something like 5.7 155 lbs.”

  54. mo808 September 10, 2012 10:45 am

    Wow, awesome that Coach McKnight drove the distance! Wish him the most Happiest Birthday on Thursday! He was always fun to watch in UH sidelines! I’ll be looking forward to his dynamic personality on Lamar’s sidelines this Saturday!

    A BIG Happy Birthday Aloha to BigHiloFan2!!!

  55. SteveM September 10, 2012 10:45 am

    I was at that UH – Texas A&I game. Gee, was it that long ago?

    There were a lot of ceremony speakers on that occasion, and I noted only one of them even mentioned the Texas A&I team for being there. Then the game started and they dismantled us. Weren’t we supposed to win by 3 touchdowns?

  56. PeteJek September 10, 2012 10:55 am

    Aloha, Liz.

  57. Old School Dave September 10, 2012 10:58 am

    I think Army HC Rich Ellerson’s claim to UH football immortality is that he made the first ever tackle at brand new Aloha Stadium against Texas A & I (of course it was at the tail end of a long run, if memory serves me correctly).

  58. obachan September 10, 2012 11:16 am

    @#8 Nice to see David Toloumu’s name mentioned – all-time favorite. I played some pick up basketball with him once upon a time when my bones didn’t creak. Still remember him as being cat quick – my eyes popped out when he saved the ball from going out of bounds when I thought it was humanly impossible to do so on that occasion.

  59. BigHiloFan2 September 10, 2012 11:29 am

    yup, had plenty practices ah da BigHiloHurt. :mrgreen:

  60. Think2much September 10, 2012 11:32 am

    The Lamar game should be a demonstration of the Chow offense. Expect to see a lot of running plays and ball control. Expect to see the Warriors play a complete game. Expect to see a conventional punter and strong special teams play. Warriors should control the trenches on both sides. If they don’t achieve superiority, then the system and coaching should be questioned.

  61. Stephen Tsai September 10, 2012 11:58 am

    Harding is the punter so expect somebody not to get a perfect score on his predictions.

  62. Warrior Dave September 10, 2012 12:00 pm

    I enjoyed Coach McKnight while he was here. But I have full trust in Coach Chow that the candidate he chose is better. Good luck in all your future endeavors Coach McKnight. .

    I remember as a high school aged young person going to UH football games at the old stadium. There was this team who I remember coming to play UH from Texas. They wore black uniforms and as they came out of the tunnel, I thought, “uh, oh” they don’t look like the Redlands and other schools we’ve been playing.

    Those guys just kicked our behind. I think they ran a version of the veer.

    #53 OldSchoolDave:

    On the other hand …

    Walter Nazoe is about 5’6″, maybe 170 when soaking wet. He played against some 6’2″ 200+ pounds guard or tackle at Nebraska when we were some 50 points underdog but we beat them and he held his own.

    But you are right, height often makes a difference – the Wahine played tough at times but the UCLA players …

    Like Larry Price said “physical superiority cancels out all theories”

  139. Don Weir (We-Ah) September 10, 2012 6:22 pm

    Aloha All,

    I am heartened to see the end of the costly ‘big party’ at the end of the season. A family event where fans, players, and families may attend is truly a community gathering to honor the players for their season.

    From experience I can tell you the cost of the banquet was out of hand: $65k the last year when I was involved. And that cost was in addition to the 6 season tickets purchased for the a/v guy who then tuned in an invoice for $2k to do the a/v for the banquet and the highlight dvd (clips already selected and sent to him from the Football AV tech on staff), as well as the non bid contract for the awards that topped $3k. $1k for balloons?? $5k in-kind for printed programs? In the words of Aretha Franklin “who’s zooming who”.

    One of the principals of the Waterhouse Foundation pointedly told me to delete a coach request for more $$ for the banquet; Waterhouse trustees did not think that more funding was needed for ‘partying’.

    The Alec Waterhouse Trust provides $25k for the end of the season banquet and does so year after year. The remaining costs are borne by Na Koa. Simple math tells us that this banquet change will see more Na Koa $$ going to high priority needs within the Football program (recruiting, training table, and more). I applaud Coach Chow’s decision!!

    See you all in San Diego.

    Stop by Filippis in Little Italy to say hello if you have the time. We’ll be there in the outside patio (covered) from noon to 2:30 or so.

  140. d1shima September 10, 2012 6:24 pm

    A little help please…

    Am I watching the AFC West or the Big West?

    It’s tough to tell because evidently neither one is playing football this season!

  145. Bowwar September 10, 2012 7:16 pm

    We-ah: Thanks for sharing…Some habits are hard to break. I’m glad to hear that Coach decided to make the end of year celebration more affordable & a “people’s” celebration. Change is hard, but sometimes u have to do it to make things better!

    OK, I was away for a week and missed a lot of Hawaii news. Just heard on the news yesterday, but I wasn’t really paying attention. Did Greg Salas really get traded? If so, to what team?

    Gotta ask ST. He might be on the Patriots active roster. Not sure if that’s true or not. Just heard.

  148. koakane September 10, 2012 7:49 pm

    eh not easy being a contraband role model, takes a lot of hard work.

  149. canefire152 September 10, 2012 7:50 pm

    All in!

    Aloha Liz!

  150. kev-1 September 10, 2012 8:03 pm

    papajoe2 and kifi,

    Yes, Salas is now a Patriot. He was dressed and on the sideline, but didn’t see any playing time. He has only been there for a week, so it was unlikely he would have seen any time. He is familiar with Josh McDaniels (the OC, his former HC at the Rams).

    I don’t care for the Patriots, but it is really a great fit for him. I see him learning a lot from Welker.

  151. kev-1 September 10, 2012 8:05 pm

    UH 38 Lamar 10

  152. Slugger September 10, 2012 8:07 pm

    Don Weir,

    Mahalo for the back info re: the year-end banquet. The football program can surely use more of the Alec Waterhouse Trust funds than spending it on a banquet where only a select few can afford to attend. If you want to increase support, I think Coach Chow’s idea will do it. Here’s hoping that this idea will flower.

    Aloha, Liz! 😉

  153. 96792Fan September 10, 2012 8:14 pm

    I appreciate McKnight’s drive (literally) to see coach Chow like that, but didn’t he leave Hawaii twice before? I think Chow was correct to find someone else. And yeah, why isn’t he still with JJ?

  154. Capitolist/WassupDoc September 10, 2012 8:15 pm


    I don’t see anything in the football ticket envelope for a basketball coupon – must have thrown it away when the tickets arrived a couple of weeks ago.

    Perhaps I can get some replacement coupons from the ticket office.


    Won’t be at the T-gate until about 3:30 pm which is about when folks will be cleaning up from the lunch. We’ll bring something for the Post-Gate.

    With respect to the BYU away game on September 28, is there someone with a decent-sized house who can record the game which starts at 2 pm and the host a Tsai-ko Potluck Party starting at 5:30 or 6 pm? We do not have PPV plus both of us will be working that afternoon so we will not be able to stop by one of the sports bars.

  155. cee808 September 10, 2012 8:16 pm

    Seeing Don Weir’s post (#139) reminded me of a comment made during Sunday’s (I think) broadcast of the Wahine match. It was something like “Come on down to the Stan Sheriff Center for the Rainbow Wahine Volleyball Alumnae Dinner. Tickets are only $95.” The value might be good, but “only $95” per ticket just doesn’t sound right.

  156. Old School Dave September 10, 2012 8:19 pm

    I remember the 1980 opener against Abilene Christian at Aloha Stadium. I think there were some 40,000 plus in attendance to see that game.

  157. tommui September 10, 2012 8:32 pm


    Thanks for the info (#!39).

    Coach Chow’s idea of the luau is brilliant. To build up support means aiming for the masses, not just the rich and famous.

  158. WU September 10, 2012 8:34 pm

    To Bufoman (106)

    That team that kicked UH’s A__ was Texas A&I.

  159. follower September 10, 2012 8:39 pm

    Bummer, go on Hawaii Athletics “sports gallery” and you find only 8 pictures of UH vs USC. 8 pictures? really! If you go on “photo gallery” you find NO pictures of the UH vs USC or anything else since early August.

    Do the Warriors play this week? Lack of media push, support or excitement if I have to go search for any updates, stories or pictures that have anything to do with Warrior Football. C’mon show some love.

  160. SteveM September 10, 2012 8:40 pm

    duffer — check your cell phone.

    If you have changed number, please call me.

  161. al September 10, 2012 8:49 pm

    duffer…you bringing some maui wowee is why you need your back pack?

  162. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 8:50 pm

    WDoc: the BYU game will be shown on ESPN, not PPV, so you can record the game on your TV.

  163. al September 10, 2012 8:50 pm

    i think tom might want some of that stuff.

  164. al September 10, 2012 8:50 pm

    are you offering your big house with the big screen tv and central ac?

  165. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 8:52 pm

    Al: we have no desire to see the game twice, as WDoc suggested. Good luck.

  166. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 8:52 pm

    hey, is it raining where you live? It’s been pouring Aloha Stadium area.

  167. al September 10, 2012 8:53 pm

    no you were supposed to record the game and not watch it till later that evening.

  168. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 8:56 pm

    ack. is the game on Friday? Wonder if hubby can get 1/2 day off.

  169. al September 10, 2012 8:57 pm

    there you go…recording the game for later viewing would be perfect.

  170. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 8:58 pm

    get this. Hubby wants to buy the 80 inch Sharp at Costco. He’s nuts. I told him it would block the art work on the wall. Ongoing argument between us.

  171. al September 10, 2012 9:05 pm

    let him have it. his eyes are going bad, give him some kind of relief.

    soon you will enjoy the size too.

  172. SteveM September 10, 2012 9:05 pm

    gigi — you remember your 46″ vs 52″ Bravia debate? Something to do with a wall in the way… 🙂

    You have other walls for artwork…but only one spot for the 80 incher, right?

    …and the wall’s not an issue anymore. 🙄

    Go hubby!!!

  173. al September 10, 2012 9:09 pm

    say, if you get that 80 incher, may i have your old 52?

  174. SteveM September 10, 2012 9:13 pm

    Al — if you get gigi’s 52″, can I have your 46″ 😛

  175. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 9:14 pm

    he is also debating whether to get a 3-D TV.

    but you guys are right. he spends a lot of time watching sports, reality shows, and netflix. He works so hard at the office. He deserves a treat.

    and here’s the kicker: it’s his money!

  176. jm2375 September 10, 2012 9:15 pm

    Just to clarify, the coupons that came with the football season tickets are for Wahine basketball OR Warrior volleyball, not basketball.

  177. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 9:16 pm

    isn’t there a rule as to size of TV vs distance from the sofa?

    SteveM, you’ve sat on our love seat. It is closer to the TV than the sofa is.

    Do you think 80 incher is too big for the love seat viewing?

  178. Manoa Warrior September 10, 2012 9:17 pm


    Aloha, Liz.

  179. SteveM September 10, 2012 9:30 pm

    gigi — I think the sofa is further away, depending on which end you sit.

    The loveseat is not too close… in fact, I thought the 52″ was adequate, but smallish. 🙄

  180. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 9:37 pm

    knowing him, he will probably buy it.

    i really don’t like 3-D, though. hate wearing those glasses.

  181. SteveM September 10, 2012 9:44 pm

    I’ll peek in later. Gotta continue “packing”.

    15 day trip with cruise.

    Sheesh…1 night for updating OTC meds pack and handcarry

    1 night for assembling various vitamins and prescription meds/supplies

    1 night refilling/replacing toilet kit items

    1 night ironing — hey, happens biannually…

    whatever happened to “throw all my stuff in a suitcase” 3 hours before the flight…?

  182. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 9:48 pm

    Have a great time, SteveM.

  183. Don Weir (We-Ah) September 10, 2012 9:52 pm

    I believe that the end of the year luau is a great place for an end of the year cattle call.

  184. al September 10, 2012 9:56 pm

    stevem…no 46″ at our home.

  185. kev-1 September 10, 2012 9:58 pm

    size may not matter, but that doesn’t mean I’m not envious of the guy who has an 80″ TV

  186. al September 10, 2012 10:05 pm

    yah donny boy…a tsaiko table would be cool.

    we could collect some kala from all known and unknown tsaiko’s for our own tsaiko of the year award. that would be cool.

    donate a koa bowl or something like that, maybe a mini koa surfboard trophy like keepsake.

    the award could go not to the most psycho of warriors but something that is missing from our awards category. i’d give it to the warrior who performed the most hours of community service along with a grant or scholarship type of gift to be used post grad.

    we have tsai appoint a tsaiko panel to receive nominations and finally to come up with three finalists.

    third place: ten rainbow drive inn mixed plate gravy all overs with a koa take out box.

    second place: ten rainbow mix plates, four luau tickets, and their own koa poi bowl and chopsticks.

    first place; $1000 post grad scholarship and a koa tsaiko engraved surfboard with the likeness of tommy kaulukukui riding the board with a heisman pose.

    we can do this!!!

    …nuff said.

  187. al September 10, 2012 10:06 pm

    kev-1…tell you what i’ll give you the 52″ bravia that i get passed down from gg.

  188. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 10:14 pm

    well, the 80 inch Sharp is on special for $3899 — reg price is $4499.


    clarity: excellent screen.

    you should buy it, Al. You’re rich.

  201. sean September 10, 2012 10:48 pm


    I think for that price you can 3 – 46″ or 2 – 52″ flat screens, then you can have 3 walls covered for hubby, you, and Julia.

  202. SteveM September 10, 2012 10:52 pm

    OK, I have a “after 2100 Ask the Blog” question…

    I use Old Spice (shhhhh, homey!)

    The small plastic travel bottles in my kit is very old.

    Does anyone know where I can buy a new travel set (2.5 oz bottles)?

    …in the next 2 days,

    I used to see them as Christmas present sets, but not recently.

  203. al September 10, 2012 10:54 pm

    or you could get the top of line samsung 65 incher w/3d for a few hundred less.

    then again samsung also has the 75 inch $9k w/3d with all of the bells and whistles with the highest rated natural colors.

    these two are the ones all the service techs hate because it may reduce them to part time status.

  204. tommui September 10, 2012 10:54 pm

    #163 AL – what stuff?

    If it was about TV, I wouldn’t mind getting a 23″ set to replace our 21″ set in the out bedroom but Lois says something about bad fung tsui.

    The living room can’t take 48″, let along AL’s 46″, so I guess it can go to SteveM if GIGI gives AL the 52″!

  205. al September 10, 2012 10:55 pm

    do they still sell old spice?

  206. tommui September 10, 2012 10:56 pm

    Sean #201 – or they could watch three football games at the same time!

  207. al September 10, 2012 10:57 pm

    stevem…go to those fragrance shops at waikele. they may have and sometimes ross’ carries those older fragrances.

    or you could go to macy’s and get an upgrade?

  212. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 11:05 pm

    This month’s HECO bill was $424. If we got the 80 incher, would that jack up the bill?

    wonder how my 2 yr old grandson would react to bigger cartoons.

  213. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 11:08 pm

    so many things are calling for our money:

    horseback riding

    skydive lessons

    trip to Russia

    new 80 inch TV

    so stevem…i’ve run into yet three more classmates who were unaware of the recent class reunion. perhaps they were on the dead list like me.

    Who were the three?

    OK, here’s why I knew. By some non-coincidence, a 45th reunion sub-committee comprised of ex-yearbook and Daily Pinion editor types were designing the Announcement Flyer. Shiu drew me in since I knew most of them, and I saw the finished draft. I noted the time, date and cost but did not write it down…. actually I wanted something more exciting…like a cruise or neighbor island stay.

    I do not recall it being sent the flyer from the usual reunion committee, of which Shiu is a key member. Anyway, I forgot about it and when I checked the draft again, it was a week past. 🙁

    …and I only found out last year that the McKinley reunion committee used to hold their Karaoke events at Club Genji, until their numbers outgrew the place. Small world.

  215. al September 10, 2012 11:10 pm

    i am sure your heco bill will go up some.

    the bigger “engine” requires more juice and you will find yourselves watching a lot more often.

  218. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 11:13 pm

    For the RHS 45th reunion last Saturday, only 92 people showed up.

    Previous one had over 200.

    Cost was $60 plus $5 for the group photo. Maybe the economy prevented more people from attending it at the Hale Koa.

    Excellent buffet: prime rib, crab, fish, etc.

  219. gigi-hawaii September 10, 2012 11:14 pm

    yup we did do a reverse mortgage last year.

  220. al September 10, 2012 11:17 pm

    well that’s one way to enjoy life.

  221. al September 10, 2012 11:18 pm

    maybe there’s more and more alumni whose pictures were on that poster board.

  222. al September 10, 2012 11:19 pm

    92 is still high numbers. i hear that way less than that attend ours inspite of having graduated 714 that year.

  223. SteveM September 10, 2012 11:19 pm

    Tommui — how did you know I have a 32″ Bravia in my computer room? I was going to throw it in the hand-me-down chain if Al still had his 46″… 😐

    K-Mart and Target, huh? Mahalo

    gigi– your electric bill will probably drop since the newer model is probably more energy efficient! 👿

  224. A-joe September 10, 2012 11:20 pm

    gigi- You need to make a combo pack:

    Skydive out of a helicopter over Russia and ride a horse back to your hotel. Video tape your trip so you can watch it on a brand new 24″ TV when you get back home.


    Yup! 24″!

    Here’s where the savings kicks in-

    Buy a pair of Coke Bottle glasses for you and hubby they’ll make your new 24″er look like an iMax theater!

    Just gotta be creative. You can have it all! =)

  225. al September 10, 2012 11:23 pm

    Gigi – Thanks for the info about the BYU ESPN broadcast.

    BTW – why don’t you invest in solar/photovoltaic while the tax credits are still available. Furthermore, you’ll reduce your HECO bill by as much as 75% which will pay off the installation in about 5 years.

    You should also check on ways to reduce your power usage – differentiate between need and want such as fans vs air conditioning, line-drying vs. dryer – plus replacing the stove, refrigerator, hot water heater, washing machine etc., with Energy Star products. For more information, click

    We have absolutely no space in our house for a tv set larger than 25″ which is why we like going to sports bars and great restaurants like Murphy’s, Pinky’s, Giovanni Pastrami.

    On a somewhat related note, it seems that Club Genji got into some trouble with the Liquor Commission since it is listed (#16) under the Adoption of Decision & Order section in this week’s agenda. No details in the notice, but I’m sure that the files are open to the public.

    Gotta agree with earlier posts. With the exception of our venerable host, SA slacking on Warrior coverage leading up to the opener. With monopoly power comes responsibilities.

    Morning folks!

    Didn’t McKnight leave SMU for some coaching gig in Canada?

    For those outside of da islands, the Lamar game can be seen streamed via OC16 website for $12.56. The site also provides a schedule of other games (not just football) that will be streamed. I was dissapointed that the Nevada game is not on the list.

  268. Slugger September 11, 2012 5:14 am

    Good morning, gang!

    SPAM with my granola this morning… sheesh…

    Congrats to da winnah of da ticket!

    Yup, those non-F discussions increase the comments here.

    gigi, yes, you should contact Haleakala Solar for PV before the solar credits are reduced. 😉 Don’t wait too long. People tend to wait until the end of the year for the tax credit benefit & then it’s too late to get the system installed. Takes a while to get a permit from DPP.

    K… gotta hi ho at the business mentioned above…

    Happy belated birthday, BeeegHeeelo!!! Hope was good fun!

    For us, no need big tv… cost too much, and the whole place has to be rearranged. Mo’ cheap to buy new glasses, instead of making da screen mo’ big.

    Hope those solar credits don’t go away anytime soon. Need to be available when we move back home.
