Garrison Keillor has a new book out, a collection spanning his decades as storyteller, novelist and radio show host. This summer he celebrates the 40th anniversary of “A Prairie Home Companion.” But the curmudgeonly creator of Lake Wobegon, the quirky Minnesota town where — well, you know the rest — insists he didn't want to mark either milestone. “I'm not done, so why would you put out a 'Keillor Reader' if Keillor is not done writing?” he asked during an interview in his book-lined office/Associated Press.

Question: My sister retired yesterday, at age 68. She'll be 69 on Flag Day. She runs five miles every morning. She texted last night that she's already enjoying her retirement. I'll be 65 in November. I think of retirement only because you're suppose to think of it. I enjoy what I do at Huckleberries Central too much,  suppose, to go softly into that good night. I've asked this before. How do you know it's time to retire?
