“Prairie Dogs Playing Kubb,” modified 1920s linen postcard; gouache, pencil and digital manipulation, 4” x 6” (2016) by Lori Chilefone

Lori Chilefone is entertaining “a little diversion”; it airs from 2-3pm Sundays on WHYS 96.3 FM – Eau Claire’s Community Radio.

“I’d like to dedicate this cover to Eric and Erin Anderson. Thank you for bringing this ancient lawn game home, and showing us all, both casual and dedicated players, the joy of Kubb. Playing Kubb, metaphorically, is a boiled down lesson for living well: show up, play fair, and encourage one another to be their best. We’re all looking forward to July 9-11 in 2021, when the U.S. National Kubb Championship resumes! See more examples of my work at lorichilefone.com.” – The Artist
