In November 2001 I came from a Swedish city with 300.000 people to Elroy, Wisconsin with only 1500. From a bustling city with everything to Small Town America with considerable less. But it was my choice. I wanted more out of life and I wanted more challenges. I put up my profile on a dating site and left it to destiny to chose my destination. It can sound strange to think like that when you are 55.
The way I saw it was that I had done a lot of things during the previous 25 years. In my family - we become about 85 years old. So, I could have another go at life for the next 25. After all, the two women I had loved, had both passed in cancer, so the least I could do was to make sure I at least tried to live my life here to the fullest.
This book is about lives lived and moments past in and around Elroy, Wisconsin. . Some stories are real, others I have made up.
