Show The Girl A Good Time

I haven’t had a date since the Carter administration, so excuse me if I sound like an old fuddy-duddy when I say: we used to set the bar a bit higher. My friend Bridget flew into Chicago a couple of weeks ago and we met up for a girl’s weekend in the city.  I brought […]

Starlight in Kansas City…

Every time we drive through the heart of Kansas City we see something else we want to explore.  There are the sports venues which we hear about all of the time.  There’s the Plaza (PLAWZA), Crown Center and BBQ restaurants – too many to name…and then there is the Starlight Theater which is aptly named because it is star entertainment in an open air venue under the stars.  It is extraordinary!


Ease of ingress and egress is amazing, parking is convenient, comfort, acoustics, selection of beverages and food and the bathrooms!  The first time I used the restroom at Starlight I was in shock.  This is how a women’s restroom should be configured!



Stalls on both sides in two sections.  There is no waiting in line…

He and I attended our second Chicago concert last week…this time they were with Earth Wind and Fire.







and the encore – the groups together


It is worth the drive to KC for the ambiance!

Until next time….

Now I can say

I’ve Bean!  to the Bean in Chicago..

 What a blast.  While there, I tried to figure how, Why and How?  There seemed to be a lot of people there who had like mind! Millennium Park is an Oasis in the big city.  I wish I could say I was impressed with the face-fountain-stream – whatever it is…It could be a relaxing place to sit and just “be” but I spent a lot of time trying to figure out “why”. 

We walked several miles (up hill both ways) around the city.  We always think it is the way to really see things…at one corner, we had to detour a block due to Dune 3 being filmed and we got to pass by this eternal flame  commemorating the military and had to laugh at the way it was being used…. by pigeons.  I don’t like pigeons but this was quite humorous


It was wonderful visiting with our beautiful daughter  I love this picture of her.  She has a wonderful, genuine laugh that just makes me warm inside.

Back to work tomorrow *blech.  I’m going to enjoy every minute of this day!

Until next time….
