Many people like where they live and most people are proud when their locality gets wider recognition, something that happens rarely enough in my humble little 'Sconsin burg. So I have to brag—Waukesha placed eighth, no less, on Forbes.com's list of America's Best Places to Raise a Family. I'm counting that as Something I Did Right, because that's why I'm here—being a single parent of a single child, I needed a place that would be good for my son.
Forbes somehow failed to note that Waukesha is the home of T.O.P. World Headquarters, but hey, at least they mentioned Les Paul.
