Praire Home Companion

This weekend's Prairie Home Companion was performed from Bloomington, Indiana, my old home. Featuring musicians from the Jacobs School of Music. It was a fabulous program. Funny as always, with great violinists and a pianist named Ignasi Cambra. Cambra was born blind, yet played Chopin beautifully. It looks like they archive the shows, but this weekend's is not up yet. I'll publish the link when it's up. I know I have some family members that are fans of PHC, but for those of you not familiar, it's a fun listen. My favorite line: "Indiana...where does anyone really know what time it is?" He gives a beautiful monologue on Indiana University and tribute to Herman B. Wells in the second hour, followed by "Can't get Indiana off my mind" by a baritone sax. Love that Hoagy Carmichael.

It's been a cozy morning for me. It's rainy and windy outside, but I get to stay in and listen to Prairie Home Companion and play with Brookie. I put curlers in her hair this morning - my first try. We'll see how it turns out. Today is her first Sunday in nursery at church, we can't wait.

Hope you all have a lovely Sunday.


  1. Never really listened to PHC but I heard it is fun to listen to. I hope that the curlers worked out and that you had a great Sunday. Good luck with nursery it can be a hard transition for some.

  2. I love a Prairie Home COmpanion (although I didn't really get the movie... maybe it was a little too La Lo!)
