    Hi Erik,
    I think that was a great article about you. I also hope you and Iza the best. Has Iza ever been in our country? Met the Amish? She surely must know the Amish through your writings.

    What a great article! For someone who’s made the Amish a huge part of his life, you definitely need to go to Pinecraft. I’ve never been there but I think you’d fit right in and be welcomed with open arms. Have a good day ~

    Love the part about “wintering in Poland” (yeah, don’t look for that to catch on any time soon) AND the part about your special friend. :-) I think I caught a glimpse of your special friend once on FB and she’s VERY pretty!

    Hi Erik,
    Thanks for overcoming your bashfulness long enough to publish this. I thoroughly enjoyed learning more about the man whose blog I so look forward to reading each morning.
    My very best wishes to you and your special friend Iza.

    Great article and good to finally learn more about you Erik! Thanks for sharing and enduring the arm twisting:)

    Thanks everyone, you are all very kind :) I think I needed some arm-twisting b/c I didn’t want to be accused of Gross Feelich but looks like Yonie was quick to call me on it 😉 But I have to say the good Captain did a great job on this one as he is known to do for all his Pauper pieces.

    Well! Now I finally understand the references to Poland in this blog! I’m roughly 3/4 Polish, myself. My dad was the Sports Editor of the Polish Daily Zgoda for years…we were Catholic…lived in a highly “Polish” area of Chicago years ago. Local store windows posted signs “Parcels for Poland”. There were sausage shops (and Catholic churches)every few blocks. But in all those years, amidst all that Polish influence, I never heard of anyone “wintering in Krakow.” You are truly unique, Erik!

    Good luck…to Iza, too!

    Sorry Alice Mary, I should have probably explained that better :)

    Your description of Polish Chicago sounds spot-on. When I was there I felt like I had space-warped back into Poland. The only difference was that all the prices in the shops were in dollars, same stuff for sale. Well, maybe that wasn’t the only difference.

    Rich’s “wintering” line cracked me up too. And remember there is a fine line between “unique” and “nutty” 😉 (or at least it feels that way sometimes while wintering)

    Very nice. It goes under the heading, “What you always wanted to know about Eric Wesner, but got too distracted by his fascinating articles to ask.”

    Spokesrider, Lisa, Loretta, too kind!

    Well, I’m going to try to stick to the articles, but I guess something like this every now and then is okay.

    Kudos again to Professor Rich and his crack questioning and personality sketching :)

    Next time you’re in Chicago you should join my husband and I at Paul Harnas Zakopane restaurant…it’s our favorite place to eat. For $10 you can get an amazing homestyle 3 course meal and if the Paul is in the mood a shot to wash down your dessert with!

    How did I miss this gem?

    A great article; even though I already knew most of it. Looks like Dr. Stevick enjoys teasing our friend Erik just a bit.
