Of course I forgot to mention a few things that I like or are different from Boston. Here they are:
There is a column in the Sunday paper written by the “Beer Baron.” He reviews new beers and breweries. It’s pretty handy!
The Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra’s “Concerts on the Square” were fantastic. 30,000 people hanging out, drinking wine and listening to music on 6 consecutive beautiful summer nights! Doesn’t get any better than that!
The Sunday paper can be read in one setting. Kind of disappointing. I do miss the Boston Globe.
A big shout-out to new friends who made us feel instantly welcome (Andrew & Mary) and old friends who took us right back to 25 years ago (Mark & Svetha)! We couldn’t have made it through this year without you!
Still need to check out the Mississippi River, Door County on Lake Michigan, “up north,” the Apostle Islands, Minocqua, the “Driftless area,” Minneapolis…maybe even Iowa!
