During one of his earlier missions, Leif Erikson had been gone from home for over a year.

His wife noticed that he wasn’t listed in the town’s directory any more and became worried.

So she went to the town hell and asked the town’s clerk:

“Have you taken Lief off your census?”

(for those in Rio Linda: “Have you taken leave of your senses?”)

Back about 1961, there was a book published, THEY ALL DISCOVERED AMERICA. Erickson may not have been the first. I remember reading, in the early 1970s, that the Phoenicians may have found South America.
