A Prairie Home Companion

Saturday afternoon we took in the afternoon matinée at the Paramount Theater, like an 87 year old grandma does.  

The show was none other than the live broadcast of A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor, with musical guests Brandi Carlile and The Wailin' Jennys.  The broadcast is FINALLY posted to their website.  I would highly suggest you stop everything you're doing and listen to the entire broadcast.  Great music, great stories, especially for anyone with any connection to Seattle.  

If you're a Keillor fan, you can check him out over at You can get more of his witty meandering narratives and unique voice on his column.  He's not everyone's cup of tea, but if there was a perspective from the heartland (Is Minnesota considered a part of the heartland?) that I enjoyed reading, it would be his.  

In other news:  Didn't quite make it through the day today.  Thanks to wonderful people and a caravan up north, I made it home safe and sound.  LL, who serenaded me on the drive home, this one's for you.
