ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 27 (UPI) -- U.S. humorist Garrison Keillor has returned to his weekly radio show, saying he is thankful to medical personnel who helped him when suffered had a stroke.

Appearing Saturday in St. Paul, Minn. -- during his first "Prairie Home Companion" radio show since sustaining a minor stroke this month -- Keillor, 67, thanked "the good people" at the United Hospital emergency room in St. Paul and at St. Mary's Hospital in Rochester, Minn., The (Minneapolis) Star-Tribune reported Sunday.

During the show, Keillor said the fall season "makes you think about mortality," and -- employing his trademark wry humor -- told a story of a man who sings flat "because he had a stroke a little while ago" and who had forgotten the last 20 years, leaving him permanently 37 years old.
