    CHICAGO, Chicago – my kind of town!!!!

    And Evanston!!! They have Keeney Street even.

    My brother and sister in law lived there before moving to San Fran/his hometown (has always been to music et al), then back to Chicago. But I am a living legend as I ate like the hottest spicy thing ever with no problem and they couldn’t handle it!!! Pretty good coming from bland Ventral Indiana….

    Got my MBA there in ‘84; my son in law has now graduated from N/W in Communications!!!! He’s your kind of guyPres of Students for Obama at IU/legacy/my father/myself/my former wife/my daughter and him. Ended working in the White House/trips to DC; my son and his wife lived there too…

    Fun walk down memory lane/recall early Japanese cars/transistors….; my father had a flag from Japan+/from having been there Army WWII.

    All my cars have been foreign even though my father built Chevys for 30 years!!!
