It was 1975, and coffee was still unloaded piece by piece off ships. There was time to study the patterns and shadows of the piled bags, and count them, as they were stacked on the dock.  All I needed was  clipboard, used sorting sheet, and ballpoint pen.  I can almost feel the pen in my hand as my eyes tracked it smovement across the page.
