Asked if they wanted to travel the world, they replied they are not that interested in flying, the Press Herald
"I was in the service, so I had all the cruising I wanted," Bob Von Oesen explains. "She doesn't like to fly, so we'll stick to four wheels," he added, speaking for his wife.
All they wish for is to buy a snowblower, so that their 3-year-old cocker spaniel, Abby, can get around the yard more easily during winter time. The rest of the money stands to go to the couple's 14 grandchildren.
