6A The Mountain Messenger, Thursday, July 12, 1990 Danish . . . Continued from Pg. 1-A used to quarter horses and western saddles. Jim is always mad because I ride his horse Cochese and he has to ride another. On Sundays we al- ways go riding usually to Jim's Uncle Lockhart and Aunt Jean's farm. It is so beautiful there. I would not trade the scenery for anything." Making friends came easy to Momka and she says it is a natural for her. "Once I started to school } made lots of friends. Several of my girlfriends have been great for me and I hope to keep in touch forever. Jim's mother, Louise Arbuckte, be- came a good friend to me." Monika says one of the big differ- ences from Denmark to the U. S. is the TV shows and commercials. "Over here there are many more shows. In my country we have "Dab los," "Dynasty" and "Bill Cosby," but all the voices are in Danish. So I never heard their real voices until I came here. J. R of Dallas was the real surprise. In Denmark the guy who does his voice Es real deep. We have lots of American and English movies. I don't have any favorite shows, but I do like MTV and, yes, the "Bonanza" reruns, I love them. It is a great old show about family and caring. People need to see more shows like this." So is this Scandinavian girl ready to leave Lewisburg for the fast pace life of Copenhagen? "No, I wish I could stay here forever. I mean I do mLss things back home, but life here has been like a dream. 1 like running around with Jirn . . . he is always going somewhere or into something And you can always talk to Jim and Gall about anything. They are very understanding. This has been the best year of my life, it's too bad the time passed so fast." But a twinkle came in her eye when she began to plan her return VISITS.
