More tickets available for Minneapolis' Luminary Loppet

My next wall calendar has been fixed behind the old one for some time, my Minnesota Farmers Union calendar that I pick up each summer at the Minnesota State Fair. The pocket calendar is a different story. I wait because they go on sale at some places. Thankfully, I do not have to wait to put items on the Almanac arts calendar. It’s always handy.
