A Prairie Home Companion

Jim and I love A Prairie Home Companion. And I realized yesterday, that I never mention it.

It's such a priceless piece of America. When I listen, I'm drawn in- to the humor, the sentimentality, the vocal talent, the music, the love and ache for days gone by (that I was never even here for)- I'm drawn into the ridiculous stories that turn on a dime into deep, thoughtful introspection, and I am always entertained.

And don't worry, speaking as a firsthand witness within my own family- every single stereotypical, over-the-top characterization of the people of Minnesota is 100% accurate.

I love it too! It's our family tradition to listen to it on Saturday nights while eating homemade pizza!
