Whew! It’s been nearly a week since I’ve written in this journal. Let me just say that, for no clear reason, I have been in such a funk this past week or more! I’ve done all right at conversation, but writing (or any other complex brain function) – it just hasn’t happened. Every time I’ve sat down to put brain and fingers to keyboard, I’ve come to a screeching halt. I hope that sorry state of affairs is coming to an end!

Maybe part of coming out of that was a bit of fun I had last night. Two people I’ve known since the late 70’s, Mark and Joelene, came to Chicago from Michigan to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary, and I got to spend some time with them. In fact, they were able to come to TnT and saw me as caterer Vinnie Black. They’re both performers as well – actors, singers, puppetry; you name it, so they had a more informed perspective on the folderol and mayhem that we presented to them in the course of the show. I’ve spent many a fine holiday evening sitting around our friend Maggie’s living room singing while Mark played the guitar.

We went out after the show to O’Brien’s, a very nice bar/restaurant on North Wells, where we spent the next few hours getting caught up. We’ve hardly seen one another at all in the past decade, so there was a lot of ground to cover. But they kept buying me white Russians (I had 3, which is a lot for me!), and the time tumbled by until it was time to say goodnight.

At this point, I’m trying to get my schedules coordinated for a trip to Michigan in mid-January, so with any luck, I may be seeing them again soon!

Happy to see you too!

I'm honored that you blogged about our visit. We enjoyed it so much. Your talent, your wit and your charm have always made you one of our favorite people. Life is going by so fast and we don't get enough time to enjoy moments like last week enough. Thanks for sharing.

I see I have a lot of reading to do.

Will write again soon
