Enjoyed lunch at the People’s Organic with Pat Minelli, retired editor of the Shakopee Valley News, today. Upon arrival, we noticed a turkey feeding on the boulevard, dangerously close to the highway . . . and Thanksgiving. Inside, Stan selected a vegan delight for himself and Pat chose a turkey burger, giving rise to speculation that the appearance of the unusual wildlife may have subliminaly influenced his luncheon decision.
Regular readers of this blog may recognize Pat. He's from the Iron Range and uses the pseudonym "The Ranger" when commenting.

Here's a story about my Dad that appeared in today's Fargo Forum. He died in 1994. They still remember him in North Dakota. A nice thought.

|Don't you just want to be part of this? Perfect weather brought out the mob on the first day.|
Highlight was being up close and personal with Kathleen’s favorite weatherman and anchor, Belinda and Julie from Kare 11 interviewing a dog, and then the traditional ride to Machinery Hill on the sky tram, and walking back to the art barn and stopping to see the homemade cookies and cakes. Kathleen did not say she would enter next year, as she usually does when she sees the samples that don’t seem to look as good as hers. :) It was hard finding vegan food for Stan, stopped at French Meadow to sample their Earth Wings, lines too long, patience short, and opted for the fresh french fries. Bus ride home was smooth. Another year gone, another State Fair. Kathleen’s still there last we checked.
|So much to see.|

Two blocks from the bustling Eden Prairie Shopping Center, this woodsy trail leads past a sweet pond and wetland hidden from street view. Much to explore and Birdie is ready. We've made good progress moving into our new home on Leaping Deer Lane. Still no deer. Pet Smart Hospital is a block away and Birdie almost was a candidate, eating a whole bag of aluminum-wrapped doggie supplements. No problem, just evidence of tin foil in her whatever.
Below is a shot of our moving crew, Bob, Rick and Matt, sent along by Jennifer. Guests last night at the new digs were Melissa and Emily, who live just down the road. (Can I get a ride home from my violin lesson?) They approve of the new place and so do we.

We take possession of our new place on Leaping Deer in Eden Prairie tomorrow (Wednesday) near the Eden Prairie Center. It's a rental very similar to our former Shakopee residence only a bit smaller. Close to the Eden Prairie shopping center and family members, we are hopeful this may be the right place. If it is, we'll buy at this location. We have three years to decide this time. Movers come on Thursday. Our lease in St. Paul runs out September 1 so we should have a relaxed move and time for the State Fair and relatives from Colorado. Yippee!
