For those of you who miss Dan Yonce

Dan is alive and well and living in Slovakia
But has he gotten a Green Card yet?

Dan with his mystery wifeDan Yonce (on right with mystery wife) ran Dick's Coffee Bar at the Orleans Post Office for years, and became what laughingly passes for a literary salon in that improbable place.

Dan was famous locally for his command of the "Woody Allen School of Romance", and managed to reach middle age a bachelor, so we were all amazed when a lovely young woman from Slovakia showed up a few years ago as his bride. 

Being the local cads we all were, we assumed she only wanted Dan so she could get a Green Card.

Boy, were we all ever wrong, and in spades.

It was Dan apparently who wanted the Green Card, or the Slovak equivalent, because he quickly sold his business and moved to that benighted, former Communist country himself where he resides and works.  Here's the note we just received from Dan in which he included the photo above neglecting (as Woody Allen suggested) to mention his wife's name. Here's his address for anyone wishing to email him, [email protected].

hello from dan yonce 

I enclose a few pictures; my wife and I, her family, and the Church where
her niece received her First Communion.

Please give my love to yourself (yes), and tell all my friends and enemies to
send money.

How are things with you, please write back and update me on
what/where/how/when/why, etc

I am at The Canadian School.  I was just at Hodina and Keric  where I taught english, which I am doing now. I am learning more than my pupils, may or may not be a good thing.
