Wow! That worked.  But I'm sorry to hear that morph doesn't support a loop
like I wanted.  That sounds restrictive but maybe I just need more time in
world to become squeakified.

Thank you SO MUCH

Not possible in Morphic (that is one of the major advantages of Tweak).

The canonical way is to test for the end condition in #step. Something  

	path ifEmpty: [^self stopStepping].
	self position: path removeFirst.
	path ifEmpty: [self owner moveTheGameBall]
