I’m the youngest of 5 girls and grew up in Round Lake, IL which is about 15 minutes to the Wisconsin border.
After I got married, I raised my 3 sons in Johnsburg, IL. At that time, I worked as a secretary in the Johnsburg school District for 16 years. Being the athletic department secretary was the BEST job ever !
After my divorce in 2008, I moved into a little foreclosure home in Lake Geneva, WI that was PERFECT for me … NOT rich Lake Geneva, just an address.
It’s while I lived there that I met Eddie online who lived in Waterford, WI at the time….. He’s the most generous, kind man I ever met and to this day, I can’t believe that he’s divorced!
On a weekend trip to the Dells with Eddie’s daughter in 2020, we decided to stay in the Adams-Friendship area to go to the flea market. Eddie’s been coming up here since he was 17, but I’ve never been here a day in my life until then. We randomly stayed at Anchor’s Inn on Friendship Lake and loved it so much we bought the place…. Within 4 months, we sold our homes, quit our jobs and became first time business owners of CABINS ON THE LAKE, a year round cabin resort.
It was within a few months of moving in that Marcus & Bob were eating at Family Affair restaurant. They saw us working outside and decided to stop by to introduce themselves to us. Long story short, after just a couple conversations with Marcus, he asked me if I’d like to work at the radio station for 4 hours a day, Monday thru Friday, 10-2…. No weekends and it’s normal for people to check in after 3 at any lodging so “what do ya think?” “INTERESTING… to answer phones & open mail?” He said “No, to talk on the radio” because he thought I had the gift of gab!
I never talked on the radio before, so with some on the job training (and I’m still learning every day) I became the mid day girl at Wisconsin 106!
I love my random life!
