40 year penpals

While on vacation last week in Liechtenstein, I visited my longtime penpal, Monica. A photographer and reporter from their local newspaper, "Liechtensteiner Vaterland," came to Monica's house for our backyard photo and interview. I have visited Monica several times in the Principality of Liechtenstein and she has visited me twice here in Eagan
