phc staff,
Why not get rid of the greetings, they are managed very poorly anyway. If a greeting is posted it "may" be seen next week or never. They are inconsistent and possibly non-existent. Save us the grief, Kill it.
- bob

Congratulations to Philip and Tara upon their engagement! I look forward to the wedding & meeting of the clans this summer in ATLANTA!
- Lisa Braschler

November 10, 2003

This might be beyond "couplely", listening to "old time radio" together is more like "grandparenty", but I wouldn't want to listen to it with anyone else but you!
- Coulter

I am so proud to be having our first baby together but so sorry our late December visit with your mother in St. Paul won't allow us to the see the (PHC) show. They're having a big city Christmas at the Town Hall in New York and we’re stuck out in the cold. Maybe we could get your mom to move... All will be well...
- Jay

I still don't think you look like Gollum. Even if you did, I'd still love you anyway.
- Erika

Aimée Harris,
My dearest Queen Bee,
I'm glad we're getting married on a Friday (11/28/2003), so we won't miss Garrison and the Prarie Home family that weekend.
- Sean Brandt

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.”
