Coming to you LIVE from Chicago, It’s the Oprah Winfrey Show

Ok…so I just drove by her studio the other day, but I really did spend this past weekend in Chicago. Kathy and I flew up to visit some old friends and enjoy the three day weekend. Thank you Columbus!

And while I missed out on taking pictures at our local football game (which we won from what I hear/read-Go Pats!) I did get in on seeing the Chicago Marathon and got some cool pictures of it. I’ll have to post those later though.

Our friends, Mike and Lisa, just recently moved back to the city here from the quiet suburbs in Indiana. They are living in an apartment in the city and have quite a view from their rooftop. (see the two skyline pics below here)

And what was really special was getting to drive up the lakeshore and go visit what used to be my home for four years back in the early 70’s – Fort Sheridan. It’s hard to put into words the feeling of going back to a house you lived in 30 years previously and seeing your old stomping grounds during what was a very formative season in my life. It was a great experience. I will say we certainly went from one end of the spectrum to the other when it comes to living locale. Let me just say I’ve seen no cows at all in my backyard while up here. 🙂

We’ll head back to the quiet surroundings of Pattonville later this evening but certainly have enjoyed our time with our dear friends. Thank you Mike & Lisa for a great time this weekend!
