    I spent a lot time with Kim at his farm when growing up. Lots of exploring around his farm. And of Running away from his dog Fido was always fun. Kim convinced me to play 4H softball.
    We were always well behaved! And of course all the fun at St Olaf. Kim had the honor of being the only person to be bit by Spot during a rousing back yard football game. Lots of stories to share……
