In order to get my hideout, I had to buy a resort. Not one of the resorts of today but Idlewood, a “Ma and Pa” hideaway with eight cabins on a spring-fed lake in the North Woods near Rhinelander, Wis. My husband, Darwin, called it a security blanket against the whims of the business world and “purposeful work” for our two teenage sons Dan and Brad. I thought of it as his midlife crisis and a lot of work for me!
