    "It's been chilly, of course, because it is almost the end of October. Mist over the lake every morning, the Canada Geese are heading South overhead." Pastor Liz delivers a sermon about the Parable of the Wedding Feast, a man visits Ralph's Pretty Good Grocery to buy a cup of coffee though they don't sell coffee, and the story of the time Eugene Berge picked up a hitchhiker.

    "It's fall. It's a gorgeous, gorgeous fall. It's been chilly, down into the 30s at night." Thoughts on the benefits of cold weather and Minnesota living, the town watches a lunar eclipse, and Pastor Liz moves into the Lewises' cabin.

    "It's been this gorgeous, gorgeous September, this beautiful time--so much happening."

    "Beautiful, beautiful week of fall. Mists on the lake early in the morning, you wake up in the morning, your window is open, you've got a little extra blanket over you."

Joke-a-Thon on this weekend's A Prairie Home Companion

This week on A Prairie Home Companion, a lawyer, a blonde, a nun and a trombone player walk into a bar for a special joke-a-thon compilation show. Along with the slurry of jokes, VocalEssence sings the "The Ying Tong Song" from the BBC's "Goon Show," we'll pay tribute to the Marx Brothers and Tom Keith's utterly perfect chicken sounds take center stage for "The Sound of Chickens." Plus, Andy Stein's "Knock Knock" song, a visit from Sven and Ole, and a rather unfortunate school lunch was served at Lake Wobegon Elementary School.
