Slim pickens here I'm afraid, Tony.  I got interested in it, stumbling 
over a forth that ran on the coco back in the latter 80's.  And I bought 
a copy of Brodies "Starting Forth" back in the day but very few of the 
lessons in the book would actually run on that crippled forth, so it 
wasn't much of a teacher for me.

But, I'm a packrat and I don't believe I've thrown that away, but its 
been since I was cleaning out my office as I was retiring in the middle 
of 2002 since I last recall seeing it.  No clue what became of the 
disks, although there may be a copy of it on the pair of old mfm hard 
drives I used on my office coco3. 

And to find it, likely several days of excavation in my midden heap in 
the basement.

I've marked this message so it will be a bit easier to find should I come 
across the book, or manage to find space to set my old office coco3 up 
and see whats on its drives.  IIRC I'll have to build or hack up a pc 
psu to run the drives before I can make that run again.

Cheers, Gene Heskett
