So, what will you be doing to support yourself in Pole Land? Teaching again?
We have the past, but cannot yet see the future here.

Since my better half and I will move to Poland for a year or two in about a week, I thought it appropriate to come up with a Rogue with an Eastern European theme. I'll launch it tomorrow about 2 p.m. CST. It won't be anything of an imaginative nature like Gary's limericks, but rather a mixture of punning genres, some of them oldies (but goodies).
One of the regulars on this list asked me what the story on Poland was. I had a Fulbright lectureship there during the 1979-81 academic years, Beata was my student, and we married a few years later. I joke that I wanted a young, pretty wife and she wanted a green card. We celebrated our 30th anniversary this past April, so it was obviously more than a sugar daddy relationship. Again, I joke that she was looking for three things in a husband: looks, money, and education. Well, one out of three ain't bad! I do have a Ph.D.
