Spoons and Rhubarb

I've know Frank Wright a long time - ever since he was a younger man with wild eyes and a radical ponytail. We talk liberal politics, art and gardening. By schooling Frank is a veternarian. He originally came to Minnesota as the raptor specialist at the Minnesota Zoo. Somewhere along the line he starting running with Peggy Hanson, an activist lawyer who was a lobbiest for liberal causes. When the smoke finally cleared they settled in Lanesboro, Peg running a B & B and Frank carving beautiful wooden things. And raising rhubarb at Oz.


And Arv is back where he belongs, making sausage and playing his accordian.

Mighty fine spoons! And strawberry-rhubarb pie is still my favorite (with a bit of vanilla ice cream on the side).

Enjoyed watching Garrison getting soaked while singing/walking through the audience in the rainstorm. And the rhubarb "commercial" of course.

We had some real thunderstorms out here in Oregon yesterday afternoon (and got a month's worth of July rain in a few hours). Old toads love that wet stuff, especially in the summertime.

When I rode through Lanesboro in early June I saw some spoons like that in an artists window display downtown. Must be the same guy.

Doug,
Frank is like an onion. You think you know the onion, but the more layers you peel off the more there are.
