Arms

Prairie Home Companion


Tonight was the simulcast of PHC in the local theater.  I had planned to go get tickets this afternoon, but this morning the local NPR station had a trivia question.  How old is Garrsion Keillor?  By prudent use of Wikipedia, I found out (68).  I called in and got in on my first call (usually I can't get through) perhaps because they had more lines due to the fundraising drive.  My name went into the wooden chicken.  Ten minutes later they called saying I had won.

snailstichr  and I went and had great fun.  Wonderful singing, sound effects, Guy Noir, Dusty and Lefty, and News from Lake Woebegone.  I have seen the movie.  I would like to see it in the Fitzgerald, but if I never do, this will do.

I, too, am above average.
