Meet Lifestyle Lil


I’m glad to be back in Southern Indiana after 21 years traveling the world. Although I can speak five (5) languages fluently, my favorite language is good ole “SOUTHERN INDIANA TWANG”. All I can say about myself is, I was born, highly educated (7 college degrees) and presently living!

Lately I been hanging out and enjoyed connecting with my roots once again. Though I am still grieving about the passing of my 5th husband, oil man, Wolfgang Franz from Germany. Recently, I have rekindled an old flame with my high school sweetheart CCO Mole #3. We parted ways after high school due to his risky enlistment into the CIA. He is now retired CIA and is an undercover informant for the City-County Observer. I look forward to hearing all about his new career in detail at tonight’s reunion dinner at Biaggi’s Ristorante Italiano.

Oh, I want to personally thank the City County Observer for allowing me to write the new weekly life style-social column titled “Lifestyle Lil“. Hope you enjoy reading my unpredictable articles!

Presently I’m looking for a home that could be converted into a bed and breakfast located in the majestic Historical District, so I called Market Realty. They sent Michelle Peterlin to help me find the home of my dreams. Michelle really knows her stuff! However, I am a bit fickle so I am still looking and am glad Michelle is extremely patient. I am pleased to hear that the Old Evansville Historic Association have been dedicating the time and resources needed to restore and maintain the Historical District. Their goal is the replacement of the old utilitarian sidewalk/street light fixtures with historically correct fixtures that provide ample lighting and promote safety and walk ability while preserving the areas historical character. I want to give a special thanks to OEHA members Elmer Buchta, John and Pam Guthrie, Sherry Wright,  Dr. Chuck Hudson.  Hopefully we can get the City of Evansville to sign on as equal partners in other worthy community restoration projects.

I needed new tires and a detail done on my car so I went to D-Patrick on North Green River Road. I must say the General Sales Manager, Tony Ricketts took excellent care of me. The detailed staff did an outstanding job on my car! I would highly recommend the ladies and gents at D-Patrick’s to anyone!

Of course I had to change my auto insurance policy. I needed insurance for new car. I met this guy, Bob Dillow and must say is great at what he does. Not only did he save me a great deal of money but also increased my coverage.

Since I’m single-ish now, I decided to go out and paint town RED-BLUE and GREEN. I stopped at The Vault Bar located in downtown. I had a monster time. Great people, wonderful live music and nice atmosphere. This also happens to be where I ran into the Mole. #3 again. Just sit and watch him talk his trash and woo the woman. Its obvious that he hasn’t changed much after all of these years. What a piece of work.

They say in Evansville that “political games are the same but the names have change“! However it’s refreshing to see females faces on the political scene such as Katharine Martin-Knight Township Trustee, Stephanie Terry-Vanderburgh County Council and Gail Reicken-State Representative District 77. I was surprised yet glad to see Connie Robinson is still on Evansville City Council. I am really happy to see John Friend, CPA is still serving on Evansville City Council.  Oh,  John was my 5th husband’s CPA and did a remarkable job for him. I was really pleased to hear my favorite retired heart doctor, Dr. Dan Adams is also serving on the Evansville City Council. The real surprise came when I heard that my ole friend Scott Danks, who represented me through four divorces, is now legal counsel for the Evansville City Council. I can tell you one thing; Scott is one he– of an attorney and he shall serve the council well!

Until next time, don’t take any wooden nickels! I’m on my way to give a lecture at Harvard University on “DSYFUNCTIONALITY”! I can guarantee that I know all about this subject! Anyone who has any social news can contact me at!
