    You’re a really inspiring fellow, and a great podcaster to boot! No one deserves a speedy recovery more than you buddy. Can’t wait for your first show back.

    Always (Or at least for a little while longer),

    Larry,

    I have taken to breaking out my Larry Miller Drinking Society Card and having a drink to your speedy recovery each day after I finish work. Two things:

    1) I will need a new card soon as I am wearing this one out.
    2) You need to get back soon or I will have to actually admit I may have a problem. Until then, it’s simply a tribute!

    Get well soon sir, the world loves to laugh along with you!

    All the best!

    Mike

    Hey Larry, I watched “God Bless America” a couple nights ago. I’m not sure that seeing you get shot in the chest (spoiler alert) was the best form of get well homage but hey, I thought your acting was great and I enjoyed the film.

    Miss the podcast, hope your recovery continues to go well.

    Who is this “Larry” that everybody is referring to? I don’t remember any “Larry” around here. At any rate, after his fall, maybe this Larry guy had to get in a line in some public building someplace in order to re-apply for a podcasting license. He probably got to the front of the line, and was then told that he was in the wrong line. Then he got to the front of the correct line, and was told that he had brought the wrong forms. Or… maybe he’s just been out hamper shopping all this time. There are a lot of possibilities. At any rate, I don’t remember this “Larry” person…

    I came upon your podcast late, so I have had the joy of going back and listening to all the older ones during your convalescence.

    Almost every podcast evokes a memory and several good quotes. I love the one you said about not knowing much about women as a young man, “I was aware of the biology, but didn’t get the geometry” – or something to that effect. Brilliant! I now go through my week chuckling to myself and in a good mood. Thank you and God bless. Here’s to a speedy recovery! -clink-

    Larry,

    Hope your noggin is healing well,
    while you’re perfecting the five-fecta.
    I’ll show my solidarity,
    with a glass of tonic & necta!

    To hear you crack-wise and regail
    us with tails from long ago.
    The podcast crowd will surely wait
    as long as you need, dontcha know.

    But we won’t sit here long of face
    while you’re trying to get your rest.
    A martini glass well-filled we’ll raise
    TO Larry,… Well he’s alright I guess.

    Get well, Pal.
    We miss ya.

    Larry, we all miss you and wish you the speediest of recoveries from your unfortunate pratfall. On the bright side, I’m sure it will make for one of hell of a story that you can share with all of us once you return to the airwaves.

    Stay thirsty, my friend.

    Speaking of true occurrences: Garrison Keillor on a book tour, visited my town Maplewood’s “Words” bookstore for a humorous talk, reading and book signing. In the Q&A, one cranky guy (not me) asked what Keillor thought of the late Jean Shepard (Keillor hadn’t heard him but respected his talent for being fired). What I thought about, was that Keillor’s responses had touched on the crucial role of audience reaction in his live shows and I thought of the contrast to Shepard’s monologue style which was well-suited to being alone with a microphone. In live performance recordings it seemed to me like the audience reaction just slowed him down. When Keillor left, he seemed a bit melancholy and I would have liked to have had something to say to cheer him up. Something like: “Jean Shepard was not-quite-Lenny Bruce but Mr. Keillor, I think you’re up there with Will Rogers — or maybe James Thurber.” Of course these notions only occurred to me later on but I was irrationally troubled by having nothing amusing to say to show my appreciation (and a bit of a competitive urge to try to make him laugh). Compared to what sounded like the good time shared by a large live audience of the Prairie Home Companion, listening to Jean Shepard when I was young was a very different experience (on headphones, especially, since no one in my household could “get it”) — more like a one-way phone call from the witty-though-manic high school friend. I continued to obsess about missing the chance to amuse Mr. Keillor. On a subsequent day I spoke of this to a co-worker. I commented that if we had had to pay Keillor for his visit, it would probably have been thousands — and he said for a commencement address, it would have been 50 thousand. He added that while Keillor acts all “warm and fuzzy” for the public, behind the scenes he was “a real tough cookie.” Almost at once I began to feel relieved and completely off the hook.
    Best Wishes for a Speedy Recovery!

    I really miss your podcast, the wit and the warmth of it all. So does my 2-1/2-year-old son, who would listen to it with me on the way home from school. (He *really* loves the opening march.) When I told him what happened to you, he got sad and said he wanted you to feel better. That night, when I was putting him to bed, I asked him (as I do every night) if he wanted to say a special prayer for anyone. And he said, I kid you not, “Larry Miller.” Since then, he’s done it at least half a dozen times without being prompted by me. We both miss you and hope you are back on your feet, and back at the mic, as soon as possible. All our best to you and your family during this difficult time.

    Larry,
    So glad to hear on Adam’s show that you are recovering well. I was just listening the other day to a couple of podcasts when you filled in for Dennis Miller in 2008 (you were talking about Little League parents, Jerry Seinfeld was a mystery call-in guest). I have kept these shows on my iPod ever since because they always pick me up if I’m down and make me laugh and think positively when I’ve got a big day/task coming up.
    Best wishes and take your time getting better.
    thanks,
    Andrew

    Dear Larry,

    Yesterday on the podcast, Aceman mentioned in one of his glorious complaintathons that he’d paid you a visit, and that you’d said something about how lucky you felt. Well, as a tribute to you, and to that very fine and noble sentiment, I give you the late Bernard Knox, a classicist among classicists, who fought in the Spanish Civil War, and who had this to say about an unusual passage in our man Homer’s Iliad. The passage is unusual, by the way, b/c Homer so seldom engages in descriptions of beauty, natural or otherwise.

    ——-
    “The most marvelous lines in the Iliad owe their unearthly, poignant beauty to the presence of violence, held momentarily in reserve but brooding over the landscape. They are the lines that end Book 8 and described the Trojans camped on the plain, awaiting the next dawn, which will launch them on their attack on the Greek fortification.

    ‘And so their spirits soared
    as they took positions down the passageways fo battle
    all night long, and the watchfires blazed among them.
    Hundreds strong, as stars in the night sky glittering
    round the moon’s brilliance blaze in all their glory
    when the air falls to a sudden, windless calm . . .
    all the lookout peaks stand out and the jutting cliffs
    and the steep ravines and down from the high heavens bursts
    the boundless bright air and all the stars shine clear
    and the shepherd’s heart exults—so many fires burned
    between the ships and the Xanthus’ whirling rapids
    set by the men of Troy bright against their walls.’

    These are surely the clearest hills, the most brilliant stars and the brightest fires in all poetry, and everyone who has waited to go into battle knows how true the lines are, how clear and memorable and lovely is every detail of the landscape the soldier fears he may be seeing for the last time.”
    ———-

    The passage’s relevance to your own case, as you’ll doubtless understand, goes well beyond the fact that on the night in question you too saw stars. Speaking of stars, there’s a good chance that among those stars that Homer depicts and that you saw was Pluto, which is, as we all know, not a star but planet, and a damn fine I’d like to point out. And who better to know that than a friend who, wishing you a full and speedy recovery, remains

    Homer Pluto

    Larry, I trust when you received your painkilling drugs, you asked the physician, “Nomiem quid geminus?”

    This past weekend, I found myself locked in an eight hour car journey with my two sons, aged 18 and 16. To pass the time, I plugged my iPod into the car’s audio system, and cautiously played one of your podcasts. I steeled myself for howls of pain from my sons (who have established without a doubt that my taste in music is nausea inducing). But to my shock and delight, the boys loved your sense of humor and stories. What followed was several hours of shared laughs and turned a long, boring drive into a funny bonding experience with my sons.

    Most of my fondest memories of growing up were the laughs I shared with my family, and I hope my sons will remember this as one of those times. Many thanks for giving us some laughs, and thanks for all your very human stories about the delights and absurdities of life.

    Take your time, get healthy, and as my Scottish wife’s family crest says, “Numquam reddere scruta,” or, “Never pay retail.”

    Sincerely,
    Greg Boschert

Hope you get well soon so you can come back to pod-casting so we can all have a Podcast to listen to on the way home to the person who cares about us :)

    Larry, I was saddened to hear that you were injured, as someone as nice and as genuine as you doesn’t deserve any pain or suffering. I am glad you are on the mend, and I can’t wait to hear you again soon. I hope when you get back on your feet again, your live show comes somewhere in Michigan or at least near Michigan. I’m not even a big drinker but I’d love to have a drink with you after a show. Take care, pal!

    Larry, we’d all love to have you back really soon, and in tip-top form to boot. I didn’t have to add “to boot”, but I thought you might enjoy the old expression. I don’t get it, though. What’s that mean, “to boot”? I don’t think a boot and a cherry on top are quite the same thing, but apparently they are. If you can help me out on this, I’d appreciate it. Not a lot, but I’d appreciate it a little, anyway. You know…is it possible that your continued symptoms are a lot like you were, before the catastrophic event? Some may think that you were always a little off, kind of dizzy. And I bet you had plenty of headaches before, following a few beefy martinis the previous night, am I right? Okay, I shouldn’t make light of your condition, I’m sure YOU wouldn’t have fun at someone else’s expens…. Wait a minute. That’s exactly what you’d do, isn’t it? Well, then I have no choice but to say it; Come back soon, Larry. You were never sure you were quite in your right mind as it was.

    I have been ending my own little podcast with your ending as a kind of tribute. I hope you do not mind. I encourage the few listeners I have to go check your podcast out! I hope that they take the time to subscribe and catch up on the old episodes!
