Hangin’ with Roger

We know many of you who follow us on this blog are not on Facebook and probably didn’t see what we posted there, Saturday, after a terrific day in downtown Chicago.  So,  just for you, a recap…

It was a wonderful day!  We saw Sting’s The Last Ship for a second time (WE LOVE IT!!!) then stopped into WGN Radio.  Got to visit with the adorable Hannah Stanley.  Since the Cubs game was on, we had the chance to talk with Hannah for a while.  We don’t mean to overstate it, but she really is absolutely delightful.

We also got to catch up and hang out with ace newsman & buddy Roger Badesch!  As many of you know, Roger is dealing with some pretty serious health issues but, with the attitude Roger is bringing to this fight, we’re betting on him to be the winner.

While we were hangin’ with Roger somebody broke out a camera.

    Lots of my friends back in the Chicago area have seen Sting’s musical and also have LOVED it. So much for the critics (sorry Dean). Love seeing your faces again. Miss you and all of your great guests! Glad you are enjoying your “retirement.”
