The Gift of Guests

For a lot of reasons, life here in Green Bay is a lonely one.  For a surprisingly large number of reasons we have basically no close friends here.  This place does not feel like home; never has, and it is looking very much like it never will.

That's one of the major things that makes having guests such a thrill.  We've been fortunate to have a good cross section of family and friends pass through on a visit, and it always has been a great occasion.

And that's why I was ecstatic to hear from a college buddy yesterday who is planning on taking his son to see the boy's favorite team, the Detroit Lions (I know - don't ask) play at Lambeau Field.  He asked if we were interested in having a couple of guests.  Were we?  We can't wait!

Green Bay isn't the best place to visit - it's a small town with limited things to do - but when folks make the trip it means the world to us.  It makes our lonely existence over here a lot more tolerable.

Hence, family and friends, please view this as your open invitation to make the trek out an see us.  We have plenty of room, will show you all Green Bay has to offer (albeit not a lot), and will generally be the best hosts we can.

Hope to see you soon.
