Some friends of mine are going to make a day trip to my hometown this week-end. I was trying to describe growing up in Cedarburg and foremost in my mind was my lack of appreciation for how wonderful it was. People drive from all over to visit this city and kids like my sister and I couldn’t wait to get out. It was pretty close to perfect. Other people appreciate it. So much that we couldn’t afford to move back in if we wanted to.
