You sounded pretty depressed last week. Don't let your illness blacken your spirit. Take it from an old Marine. Enter gallantly before dark fellows.

To the Mayor of Shorewood and his lovely bride!
Hope the flight out was great (and the airline didn’t have you bring a brown bag lunch).
Enjoy the show… we’ll be listening.

P.S. In your absence, I’ve taken the liberty of giving myself a raise.

Garrison Keillor,
Hi Garrison : Sorry to hear you were kicked off KCSC radio due to your comments after the OKC show. We still can get you on KOSU. You are quite funny. We are not all football addicts and rock n' roll enthusiasts in Okieland, though, as you seem to imply.
Take care!! Jld

Hi. I actually want to leave a joke I thought of myself. Q: Where do you find a dog with no legs? A: Right where you left it! Another one, related to that is, Q: What do you call a dog with no legs? A: You don't - 'cause it ain't comin'! :P

Ok it's really not from Garrison. Just wanted to say happy birtday a couple days early. These "posts" are short lived. Hope life is treating you fantastically (sp?). Keep that dog from licking your cake plate, it could make the seconds taste funny.

A very old friend.

Pilgrims: A Wobegon Romance

In Garrison Keillor's latest book, Lake Wobegon native Margie Krebsbach dreams up the idea of a trip to Rome, hoping to get her husband Carl to make love to her — he's been sleeping across the hall and she has no idea why. She finds a patriotic purpose for the journey. A Lake Wobegon boy, Gussie Norlander, died in the liberation of Rome, 1944, and his grave, according to his elderly brother, Norbert, is in a neglected weed patch near the Colosseum...

It's a story of Wobegonians in a strange land, telling stories of kinship and self-revelation — all delivered with Keillor's trademark humor.

77 Love Sonnets by Garrison Keillor

77 Love Sonnets From Garrison Keillor:
“When I was 16, Helen Fleischman assigned me to memorize Shakespeare’s Sonnet No. 29, ‘When in disgrace with fortune and men’s eyes, I all alone beweep my outcast state’ for English class, and fifty years later, that poem is still in my head. Algebra got washed away, and geometry and most of biology, but those lines about the redemptive power of love in the face of shame are still here behind my eyeballs, more permanent than my own teeth. The sonnet is a durable good. These 77 of mine include sonnets of praise, some erotic, some lamentations, some street sonnets and a 12-sonnet cycle of months. If anything here offends, I beg your pardon, I come in peace, I depart in gratitude.”
