Memory Cloth — Football/Art

My brother had a football scholarship to the University of Iowa. Every home game my parents would drive from the Chicago suburbs to watch him play.

When I was in graduate school at UW-Madison, I had my work in an exhibit in Cedarburg for a month.  I was thrilled. 

When I told my parents, they were happy for me.  At that time they had two houses and traveled from the Chicago area to Door County two times a week.  They went right by Cedarburg. 

When they hadn’t stopped to see my show, I had to beg them to get them to do it.  They finally did.
