Current Events

Today’s post comes from tim

i hate to send renee this blog to publish because it leaves her out.

i think it is time to begin a baboon calendar of events

a tour of the governors mansion is free fun and a launch point for an after the tour event at cafe latte or a walk on summmit avenue.

the saints are having a summer of fun we could do a meet up at.

the arboretum

the russian museum is a point that could be revisited.

david sedaris is coming up

what else can we add to the calendar of events and how can we do one that makes it possible to include renee, ben, steve, clyde, cynthia, chris, long lost krista, donna, joanne…jim and mig have gone away and dale is lurking only maybe. i don’t feel his oversight but i thought of it on the all night party night i saw the ad for that is eithre happening now or just happened. (my sleep is not ready for an allnighter this week.

what else you got?

    1. Ushering sounds like a great idea — the tickets are not cheap, but they have some of the biggest names in classical music performing there.

      1. Yep, the tickets are pretty pricy. Pricey?
        However, tnere are some free events, i.e.: “Concerts on the Green on Friday & Saturday nights, 5 – 7:00 before the show – free, right outside the venue on Winona State’s campus…
