I’m a midwest guy (Twin Cities) only because my great grandparents thought that this area reminded them of home, stupid Swedes and Germans. To me, that would’ve been a good reason to keep moving on. Maybe to the West Coast, Colorado, Northern Arizona, or Utah. Furthermore, I’ve never tried lutefisk and I don’t like headcheese. I do, however, like sauerkraut and pork chops with garlic mashed potatoes and rutabagas.
I retired from the USPS and left my disgruntled ways and a few mangled bodies behind me. For that reason I decided against having a picture of me on this back cover. I should’ve used an alias, dammit!
