To: James Ramlet
I hope you're enjoying singing with Vocalessence and Garrison. Happy Valentine's Day.
—Susan Ramlet

To: All my friends in St. Paul, especially those on Cathedral Hill.
I moved back to my home village in Germany last week, which is a kind of like Lake Wobegone. Now my daily commute is a hike across a cow pasture, where I practice my loon calling. Why did I leave Minnesota in the middle of winter...the best time of the year? I miss those cold and sunny days, and the snow and ice. You better come visit me! I've got German rhubarb pie waiting for you already.
—Rosalie Clemens

To: Paul and Shannon
To Mom and Dad, We hope the show is as good tonight as it was on your first date. Happy 30th Wedding Anniversary.

Shakopee Baby: it's not Leap Year, but I have to ask . . . time we tied "the knot?" (Waiting two decades for "a sign", like Vikings winning the Super Bowl, is no excuse!)
