Lake Wobegon, Garrison Keillor, and the Pres

      In a well-publicized broadcast from the Hollywood Bowl in California, Garrison Keillor, held his final live show after 42 years at the helm of one of the nation's most enduring, most endearing broadcasts.  The writer/entertainer, at age 73, says that it's time to move on.  He never intended to carry forth for so long; it just happened.
      During the program, he took a call from President Barack Obama.  The Pres said that he has been a long time listener and follower, and that he could recall listening to the Prairie Home Companion show when he was in the Senate and the Illinois statehouse, many years ago.  He sounded very sincere, and Mr. Keillor took the kind words as one who could deeply appreciate the effort by our country's Chief Executive.
     It underscores our recognition that time marches on; and time waits for no man.
Happy 4th Of July-enjoy the lake activities and wear a life jacket when out on the water.  Be safe.
