The first memorable post I read from Possum was the description of anthropogenic fish art that his doctor had moved from old offices to new. That was written on 1/20/02.
A little later he received a link from Dr. Frank. Long before, he often referenced den Beste, where I participated in a few discussions that included Fritz Schranck and Mommabear.
So there's almost no telling how I came upon Possumblog.
