Andrea and Gary Iseminger moved from their 50-year-old house to a condo in downtown Northfield, Minn., about a mile away.

He will teach an aesthetics course in January and stays abreast of philosophical doings at the Carlton philosophy department. He and Andrea feel they are very fortunate to have the Minnesota orchestra and the St. Paul orchestra an hour away.

Kay and I visited our daughter and family in The Hague from Dec. 20–30. I was invited to play golf! I declined, as any Floridian would. All is well with Kay and me. Still work with a personal trainer to try to stay in shape.
