I am a 67-year old American from North Dakota. I grew up in Kenmare (Kenmare if Anywhere) which is 52 miles north of Minot, (Why not Minot?) North Dakota. I spent one year at Antioch College in Yellow Springs, Ohio before transferring to Mankato State University, Mankato, Minnesota where I graduated with a major in German and a minor in English in 1967.
I worked for Grace Line in New York City as a cruise reservations person booking people on cruise ships to the Caribbean and freighters to the west coast of South America. I enjoyed my year in New York City and attended many operas. Next I went to Jeddah, Saudi Arabia where I taught English as a foreign language to members of the Royal Saudi Arabian Air Force.
