Dear Mr. Keillor, My brother
May 24, 2004 |
Dear Mr. Keillor,
My brother went to your reading in Milwaukee and afterward stood in line to get a copy of your book signed for me, and you wrote, "To Rita, Good for You." What were you thinking of?
Rita, it was an all-purpose compliment, and your brother didnít go into a lot of detail about you, but Iím sure it was richly merited. Good for me, too. I am motoring happily toward the end of the season and just finished a new book, called HOMEGROWN DEMOCRAT, and am looking forward to next weekendís show at Wolf Trap. Sure wish I could go see the big circus parade in Milwaukee though, with the 16-horse teams pulling the historic bandwagons with the bands blazing away on top of them. Itís the greatest parade in America. I am going to take my daughter to see it as soon as possible ----- she loves horses ----- and good for us both when I do.
