Great fun for Cape Girardeau

I had the good fortune last fall of spending an evening listening to stories by one of the nationally acclaimed story-tellers to be in Cape the weekend of April 4-6. Trust me, you don't want to miss these folks when they come back.

Better than any television show, this event promises to delight and enchant you. It's not just for children, although children will love it. Anyone who has neighbors, a mother, father, uncle, aunt, grandparent, brother, sister OR children, or maybe just know someone who does -- (Yes, that's all of us) -- will immediately be carried away by these stories. They are priceless. In fact, I've never been part of a crowd that has laughed so heartily (and that includes many comedy shows in my life).

Full disclosure: When I attended the "sample" story-telling night, I didn't really want to be there. Busy schedule, afterall. But within minutes of taking a seat, I was transported to a whole, new wonderful world -- which, at the same time, was awfully familar to any of us in Southeast Missouri. This time around, I'll be going with eager anticipation. For more information, click here.
