My wife and I are from the north central state in the USA of Wisconsin. Yes, we fish right through the ice. I teach economics and my wife is a registered nurse. Our house has hosted guests from as far away as New Zealand and the Czech Republic.
My wife is charming and most everyone loves her. Myself? Sally says that I am plagued with a rational mind.
Last year our trip was four weeks in the south of France. Not the coast but inland where the Cathar heresy occurred. The French were so very friendly and kind to us. So much for rumors.
This year was two weeks in Istanbul and 10 days in Greece.
