Day 32- Thanks for the memories Garrison.

Love him or hate him, Garrison Keillor is at the very end of his Prairie Home Companion career.  He has produced and written the show for over 40 years.  And it's a radio show.  A live radio show- with skits and musicians and his signature storytelling centered in the town of Lake Wobegon, Minnesota.

I began my Prairie Home journey in college, listening in peripherally on Saturday nights.  That was over 20 years ago.  

I took Robert to see the show in Atlanta in 2014, but Rob and the girls had never been.  Therefore, we rerouted our summer vacay trek to include Garrison's third-to-last show of all time, at Tanglewood in Massachusetts.  

We sat on the spacious casual lawn with fellow Garrison fans of every age and ilk. The temperature was perfect- cool with an occasional refreshing breeze.  

Kids played while parents listened.  Folks noshed on dinner and sipped wine under the trees.  We made memories.  

Nothing like a mid-show back bend break.

Sooo glad we went.
