Imagine your childhood without the influence of your Wisconsin mom. You’d have eaten far less cheese, and you’d never know the joy of watching your mom dance the polka at your cousin’s wedding.

1. She taught you how to play cribbage as soon as you could count.
Playing card games after dinner was a family ritual. Thanks to the early childhood cribbage lessons, you know all the ways to make 15 by heart, and you know exactly what “15-two, 15-four, pair is six and knobs is seven” means. You’ve even once got the elusive 29, and you’ll tell the story to anyone who will listen.
