RESIDENCE - I have lived in Minnesota all my life, except for 4 years in the Navy, (Pensacola, Fl - Argentia, Newfoundland - Iceland - Brunswick, Ga) . We do love it here and have family and friends that we enjoy. We do some travel but it is always great to get back to Minnesota. We bought and live in a fixer upper in Clear Lake on the Mississippi and enjoy watching the river flow by as well as doing way to many home projects. Even though our children and grandchildren live in the Twin City area they still are to busy to come out here enough, so we make many trips to the city and still belong to Bethlehem Lutheran Church on 41st and Lyndale So.
