Extra! 42-year old professor gets engaged!

I am pleased to report that on Saturday, December 17th, approximately 2:30pm (US Central time), I proposed to Franziska Inka Mariella Ritschel, and she accepted!

She is a beautiful and compassionate Christian lady from Hamburg, Germany, with two master's degrees (her master's thesis at University of Hamburg was entitled "Toleranz und Intoleranz bei Augustinus von Hippo und Johannes Calvin"). Franziska has been teaching in our church's academy for quite some time now.

So there is hope even for a middle-aged professor/nerd like myself. God is good! The location was the beautiful Mitchell Domes in Milwaukee.
