Good rainy morning from Collegeville,

Labor Day weekend may be wet. Our family is lucky enough to have a cabin to go to every year. The main attraction every year is the food anyway, so no big deal. Dominos and a game of Hearts will have to suffice. The kids may get a little bored, but there is not much you can do about the weather.

Today is MPR Day at The State Fair so bring your poncho. One year Ma and I went to the fair, just the two of us. She was slowing down, but she wanted to see the “Sand Castle Exhibit” that she had read about. We used the park and ride and it was a very enjoyable day. She talked a lot about the year that she and her sister, took their seven children to the fair and how much fun they had.

The APHC show this week is a broadcast of tonight’s live performance from the Grandstand at the State Fair. Special guests include transcendent vocalist Aoife O’Donovan and the North Star State’s singing sisters Jearlyn and Jevetta Steele. The Royal Academy of Radio Actors, Tim Russell, Sue Scott and Fred Newman will perform skits that are sure to entertain. Richard Dworsky heads up the band with Richard Kriehn on mandolin and fiddle. The latest News From Lake Wobegon will focus on the end of summer. Enjoy the show. If you have the MPR Radio app on your smart phone, you can catch the APHC show Wednesday evenings on the Radio Heartland stream.

“Dost thou love Life? Then do not squander Time; for that is the stuff Life is made of.” Benjamin Franklin
