Q: What’s your favorite vacation spot and why?
A: (Hometown) Appleton, Wisc. I can go there and nobody cares what I do for a living. It’s my old friends. We go to Cleo’s bar that has Christmas decorations up 365 days a year. We walk up and down The Avenue (College Avenue). We go out for a fish fry. We go bowling. To me, it is the best place to be.
Q: Can you offer an insider tip or recommendation for your favorite vacation place?
A: Even in Appleton there’s a lot to do. For 10 bucks you get two sandwiches. You can pull out a blanket and go down to the river and watch the boats go up and down the river and sit and talk. My recommendation right now is to find ways to spend money because that stimulates the economy, but if you are creative, I bet there are things in your community that you have never seen.
