The weekend was one that went fast. The reason for going was the Garrison Keillor show Saturday night in the Fitzgerald Theater. We met friends for the show and meatloaf supper with dancing in the street. The two hour show was great and the meatloaf, mashed potatoes and a powdermilk biscuit was hot and pretty good. The show had moved to the street for the supper and dancing . There was a steady drizzle of rain so everything was done under umbrellas which didn't hamper many folks. It had been a couple of years since we have been there. It is there 39th year of the Prairie Home Companion and Garrison has said he is going to retire soon, but who hasn't said that. I have and I can if I want, but then what do you do? How can you enjoy taking time-off from work and what will you do every day? On the other hand, who would like to work everyday. So anyway the rest of the weekend was all work and eating but very good eating. The Radizio Grill, the Brazilian Steakhouse was a personal favorite. They just keep bringing every kind of steak you like, grilled the way you like carved at your table. Really good stuff. The work part wasn't too bad and not too hard. Forty- eight hours can hold a lot.

A wife was making a breakfast of fried eggs for her husband.

Suddenly, her husband burst into the kitchen. 'Careful,' he said, 'CAREFUL! Put in some more butter! Oh my gosh! You're cooking too many at once. TOO MANY! Turn them! TURN THEM NOW! We need more butter. Oh my gosh! WHERE are we going to get MORE BUTTER? They're going to STICK! Careful. CAREFUL! I said be CAREFUL! You NEVER listen to me when you're cooking! Never! Turn them! Hurry up! Are you CRAZY? Have you LOST your mind? Don't forget to salt them. You know you always forget to salt them. Use the salt. USE THE SALT! THE SALT!'

The wife stared at him. 'What in the world is wrong with you? You think I don't know how to fry a couple of eggs?' The husband calmly replied, 'I just wanted to show you what it feels like when I'm driving.'
