    wow, you're really doing it?

    so, is this 'appreciation night' going to the movie? reading from the books? ??

    perhaps a ride to ravinia to see him from the lawn seats?

    my favorite story of his is still the one about the chicken with its head cut off that escapes and runs around town.

    I should have been specific:

    Yes, we're going to the movie. I'm thinking we should get several drinks in us beforehand, those of us who have flasks should bring them to the theater.


    Chimbly, did you hear about the fish that went deaf?

    He had to buy a herring-aid.

    You people are philistines. We're going to that movie, and we're going to enjoy it.

    sounds like that crush on Garrison never went away hyphyRevue. It's okay, at least he dropped the restraining order.

    I love Garrison Keillor. APHC has given me real insight into my inlaws who are Norwegian Lutherans from Northern Iowa. I thought it was just story-telling but as it turns out, they really do consider jello to be a salad and there's no food that can't be made into a hot dish with Campbell's cream of mushroom soup.

    Can't wait to have some Bee-Bop-a-Ree-Bop Rhubarb Pie or maybe some Powdermilk Buiscuits.

    I hope the concession stand has some nice bowls of ketchup. It has natural mellowing agents.
