When Garrison Keillor Stops By . . . Invite Him In
It was a rain-spattered afternoon today in downtown Rochester. I don't mind the weather, I've stood in a thousand plus rainstorms when I'm in the outdoor working on my wildlife documentaries and nature footage. I was working indoors, no mosquitos, stinging nettles, or burdock to stick to my clothes or hair.
Today, I was warm, dry, and my feet didn't have to slosh around in water-filled boots. Instead I dusted my shelves in our new Peacock Books store, add new book arrivals to my front window. Due to popular request, I decided to place Hoda Kotb's new book, I've Loved You Since Forever, and I positioned where it seemed most natural to be . . . right next to Kathy Lee Gifford's, The Rock, the Road, and the Rabbi, another highly recommended and requested title.
