So, we're just gonna have a thunderstorm EVERY night this summer?

My thought while watching a veritable river of storm water run down the street in front of the Lazy 'C' can see a pretty good show these days on the "American Masters" series on PBS. It's "Garrison Keillor...The Man on the Radio in the Red Shoes ." It's a good ninety-minute look at Mr Keillor, host of radio's "Prairie Home Companion" and "The Writer's Almanac," and author of books, poems and New Yorker pieces. He's not a jolly guy, not a gladhanding comic kind of performer, but he doesn't owe us a deep look inside at how one become so multi-talented that comparisons to Da Vinci are inevitable, at least from me.

I recommend the PBS show and Mr Keillor's radio shows, books, and weekly newspaper column. And the wearing of red socks!
