chatter square


We’ve lobbied really hard for Garrison Keillor to give up life in Lake Wobegone and move to Sharon Springs, but thus far he has not answered our letters or returned our calls.

Sharon Springs has beautiful people and above-average children, too, so on to Plan B.

What is a small town village without a small town paper to keep track of what everyone is doing?

Nancy Pfau, the town historian, is now editor of our own little paper.

Each month you can check back here for a new issue and follow the lives of the real village people. If you pay a real visit, you may even want to submit a story idea of your own!

You may not live in small town, but at least you can pretend.

I just listened to The Buccolic Plague this weekend, and I have to say that I couldn’t stop listening to it! I really enjoyed it. It was very life affirming and inspiring! I indentify with your canning outlook. I too will preserve as much as I can, all year round. This morning I was making a rhubarb (chopped and frozen from the summer) orange, grapefruit and strawberry apple jam while I listened to your tomato canning experience. Do you still film your show? I only have older episodes on Direct TV, and they seem to repeat episodes over several times in a short sequence. I especially liked the episode when your parents came to visit. Several episodes have brought me to the edge of tears; they are not like other reality shows I see on television. On an opposite note, I also loved the episode devoted to Polka Spot and her new fence, especially the last shot of her posing with her new haircut. I’m rambling on a bit, but I just wanted to let you know how much I am enjoying all aspects of your work!
