The man with the red shoes

I'm thankful that I finally got to see Garrison Keillor (and his famous red shoes and socks) in a live taping of Prairie Home Companion last night. What a masterful storyteller and entertainer! The show was created the same year that I was, which may be why it speaks to me so. All of those years of hearing it on the radio in the car when I was a kid, wishing that we were listening to Madonna instead -- and now I search it out voluntarily. It just sounds like home:)


  1. It was beyond awesome. You HAVE to see him if he ever comes near Ky. Just every fiber of his being is alive with story. So cool.

  2. Quite the storyteller. Effortless. Thanks for forcing me to listen to him :). Gotta get me some of that rhubarb pie!

  3. I'd settle for the Powder Milk Biscuits with some butter and grape jelly, even if I can't eat them with some friends at the Chatter Box Cafe, in one of the few states that is colder than Michigan. Did you report your visit to fellow Prairie Home Companion, Mr. Tom Galt?
    Definitely a "bucket list" item for me.
