Due to circumstances beyond my control (otherwise known as "life") this blog has become woefully overdue. How can Labor Day weekend be on the horizon and I have yet to report on our May visits to the U.P.?
I need catchup.
According to the Catchup Advisory Board (a fictional sponsor of Garrison Keillor's radio show, Prairie Home Companion), "catchup" contains "natural mellowing agents" that "help you gain perspective on what's really important."
Keillor's show featured spoof ads from made up companies like the Catchup Advisory Board and Powdermilk Bisquits. According to the Prairie Home Companion website, "There are a number of ways to spell ketchup, including catsup and catchup, and the Catchup Advisory Board thought that catchup is closer to the way we actually say catsup than ketchup is."
I should go make me a pastie or something and cover it with catchup. Instead, how 'bout I catch up by letting my photos tell the story. After all, the story is what's important!
