August 2009 I woke up in Wisconsin and have been here for the most part since that time. Actually I retired from teaching in June, signed up for my pension, got married and packed up the house and dog and moved to Appleton, WI.
I have not lived in an urban area since the 70’s and my college days. But I have found the transition from NW rural Michigan to living in a neighborhood and a city of 70,000+ people to be very smooth. I will explore this more in future posts.
