Free Tix Anyone?

Here's the thing - I have 5 tickets to the Prairie Home Companion show at the state fair for this Friday, but we can't use them.

I got them LONG ago - I think in April - we thought it would be fun to have Gerry's mom come out to MN for the State Fair and take her to see the show. This was, of course, before the diagnosis of MM.

And definitely before Gerry's actual 9-hour transplant procedure was scheduled for this Friday.

Ironically, Gerry's mom IS coming out, but she'll be in Rochester with the rest of us. And NOT to see Prairie Home Companion - more's the pity.

So, long story short, we can't use the tickets. Anyone want them? Free?

I have 5, and I can divide them up however you want (you don't need to take all 5) The dig is that I'm in Rochester, MN. The show is up in St. Paul this Friday.

And you are - where?

So if you're not in the Rochester area and want to pay for overnight mailing so you'll have them in time, I'll be happy to send them to you tomorrow. If you're in the Rochester area we can arrange for you to get them from us in the next few days.

Email me back by noon tomorrow
and I'll pick the brief, non-attachment email message that makes Gerry laugh the hardest.

I can't use the tickets, as I'm in Georgia (Main St. Yarns is my "local" LYS)--but when I saw the headline "free tix anyone" I thought that you had had to deal with ticks in addition to the "other little critters"--and I said to myself "oh, this is too much for ANYONE..."---
Hugs, squeezes, and all around good wishes..Elizabeth

D'oh! I'm in Caledonia, and heading north through Rochester tomorrow *and* going to the State Fair on Friday. But we already have our (four) tickets for Prairie Home Companion. However, if you don't get any takers by about noon tomorrow, drop me a line (verymelm AT gmail DOT com) and I can at least figure out a way to pick them up from you and bring them to the Cities so someone local to the Fair might be able to use them.

Hey Annie - I just wanted to let you know that I got my copy of Romantic Hand Knits yesterday and it's stunning. Absolutely beautiful. I'm so unbelievably impressed by the wealth of knowledge contained therein, and I think you've raised the bar for other designers/book writers to include that kind of detail and that many wearable, gorgeous patterns. Congrats! Wishing you laughter...

Bloglines hasn't been picking up your feed so I figured you were too busy to blog. I checked anyway and see that Gerry's transplant is coming up. I just wanted to send my well wishes, good vibes, and prayer for you guys.

Hi Annie

Oh I so wish I could say yes please and pop up to see my Son in Maryland as well. [ He turned 34 yesterday and its been 4 1/2 years since I have seen him ] But I think New Zealand is a little far to come for the show! Did see the movie tho and loved it.

However just wanted to "drop" in and wish you and Gerry well for Friday. I check your site most days but don't leave comments often. But I did want to let you know that I am thinking of you both and sending positive vibs your way.

Nothing to do with PHC but I just wanted to send you and Gerry many good thoughts for Friday. And if you haven't seen this documentary on TLC, it's beautiful and funny and sad and hopeful:

ooops, I forgot to add that one of Kris's friends in the documentary also has MM.

Thinking about your big transplant day on Friday. I hope things go well and that it is an anticlimactic event. As a matter of fact, from here on in, what you want is boring days, lots and lots of boring days. Best wishes from the wilds of Missouri.
