Hola, my lovies! It’s my BIRTHDAY MONTH! 2 weeks to go till my HBD (1/29)! I’ve been trying to think of what I need or want for my birthday. I’m fortunate to live an abundantly cool life. What could I ask for to have my lifestyle be maintained or made even better by birthday gifts? I realized I most enjoy things that can be shared and supports local businesses and services. It finally came to me: Information, Education and Entertainment. I LOVE KQED. There’s nothing better than public radio; Terry Gross’ interviews, Kai Rizdall’s Market Place, Science Friday, “Wait! Wait! Don’t tell me!”, Moth Radio, reruns of Click and Clack, and diverse perspectives/opinions on every hot topic that makes me question everything I’ve been raised to believe. I deeply appreciate and support freedom of the press. If you’re so inclined, I’d be over-the-moon delighted if you’d join me in membership (yup, I’m a member)or make a donation to my local NPR affiliate, KQED. Please join me in staying informed. https://www.kqed.org/donate/gateway.jsp And hit me up on the 29th!

"When I invented Lake Wobegon [population: 942] I stuck it in central Minnesota...on the western shore of the lake, for the beautiful sunrises. I said it took its name from an Ojibway word that means 'the place where we waited all day for you in the rain,' and it's slogan was 'Sumus quod sumus' (We are who we are)...The stories always start with the line 'It's been a quiet week in Lake Wobegon' and then a glimpse of the weather. It's a fall day, geese flying south across a high blue sky, the air sweet and smoky, the woods in gorgeous colors not seen in Crayola boxes, or it's winter, snowflakes falling like little jewels from heaven, and you awake to a world of radiant grandeur, trees glittering, the beauty of grays, the bare limbs of trees penciled in against the sky, or it's spring, the tomatoes are sprouting in little trays of dirt on the kitchen counter, the tulips and crocuses, the yellow goldfinches arriving from Mexico, or it's summer, the gardens are booming along, the corn knee high, and a mountain range of black thunderclouds is piling up in the western sky...And so forth. And you slip into your story, and take it around the turns and bring it to a point of rest, and say, 'And that's the news from Lake Wobegon,' and that's all there is to it." - Garrison Keillor from In Search of Lake Wobegon (2001) p.13-15

Happy to be back at it and excited for all the fun happenings in the neighborhood this month (Prairie Home Companion and Book of Mormon to name a few!)

Had fun with this project for @chrismcloud but I am concerned that my designs are becoming a little less bitchy and a little more stitchy.

This Thursday & Friday! Save your seats here: http://www.croonersloungemn.com/#upcoming
Thanks for getting married, Dave & Connie!

You’ve provided us a life of fun experiences in the great outdoors & some misadventures too. Like on a beach in Mexico. With stampeding bulls. And jelly fish stings.

You continue to inspire us with your love & tenacity as you keep pushing through adversity. From Dad’s stroke to Mom’s fight with breast cancer. And BONUS! You’re still fun to play with.
Happy Anniversary!
