To: Mom and Dad
Hi Mom and Dad. I just wanted to say thanks for taking me to all those sporting practices and games when I was a kid. One of my most vivid memories is mom falling in the swimming pool during our lesson in her white silk shirt. She didn't mean to turn 1st grade swim lessons into a wet t-shirt contest, but she sure did. She went home, changed and came back to the pool with her head held high... showing us what a true sport really is..Love you guys...
—Laura Dumke

We love Garrison Keillor and the humor he brings to life.
