Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

My husband and I were grocery shopping together this past weekend.  I only turned my back for a minute and BAM! an unidentified object lands in the cart.  "It's not on the list" I say.  He replies, "I haven't had this since I was a kid.  I just HAVE to have it!".  Now he knows what it feels like when I find a pair of cute shoes I have to buy!

Technology Changes How We Remember A Concert

I know, I know, I can't stop talking about the Garth Brooks concert last weekend.  While that WAS an awesome concert, there was a part that brought sadness to this old timer.  This past weekend I was cleaning and organizing a box of pictures when I ran across my Garth Brooks concert ticket from 1998.  Think about it, this piece of memorabilia is a thing of the past.

How Did Cathy Kates Stay Warm At the Christmas City Of The North Parade?

Battery operated socks!  With the temps near freezing the past couple of weeks, I was not looking forward to marching in the parade with the Denfeld Cheerleaders.  I'm ALWAYS cold, but didn't want to miss out on all the fun and memories so I started searching for ways to make it as comfortable as possible.
