Chicago- Thursday Dinner and Night at the Improv- Photos II

Presenting, the lovely Chicago Ladies!!

Walking to La Cantina- A "traffic stopping" Group!

There it is again-- Daughter chaperoning Mom!

Richard thanking the Ladies for coming to Chicago.

Great company and great food.

The cannoli were a big hit!!

Richard the "tour guide" on the way back to the Palmer House.

Enjoying the Improv!

What a great troup- The Sturgis Improv! That's my niece, Xan Franklin. Thanks, Xani!

Over 100 Ladies enjoyed the evening!

More shots of the Palmer House lobby- amazing. Took these early this morning on my way to the computer center.

Okay- off for a little breakfast and then to start the day. Beautiful weather on tap- 72 degrees and sunny today. A great day for a cruise!

More later...

Good Morning from willemina
I am at work and forgot my password (my puter at home knows me)so I had to make a new blog to post a comment...

Great pictures! Thank you for sharing them with all of us out here in cyberspace...Can't wait to see more.

You're very funny. I like your sense of humor...I went to you blog and read your bio but still can't make a comment when I click on your blog...I think you have to make a post first then we can respond...

I came to work at 5am so I will be getting off at 1pm which makes for a long weekend. Hey, maybe I can fly to Chicago for the weekend??? Just kidding, too much to do this weekend although I would love to...

Thanks for coming out of the closet. Pretty name now we wait for a picture? Or maybe not?

Valeria aka VJ aka Dreamweaver aka Senior Bachelorette aka Out of Africa aka VJ aka Flowingwater Whew can we now just call you Valeria or do you prefer Val. Nice to see you out of the closet.

Linda Thanks for sharing Dreamweavers name. It has been along time coming.

Chicago looks like its a good time for all. Can't wait for our NannyNannyBooBoosisterhood site pictures to be posted. I hope our ladies don't fail us.

Hey Coach and Dana Point Lois What a lovely couple you guys make. I still crack up at the photo Linda took of Coach and I comparing things. Grin

Joe Thanks for the wonderful pictures. But where are you?

JanieGirl said...

Dear Willemina, I havn't figured out how to do that yet!! In fact it has been a great concession just giving in and getting a blog site up. When Richard and Joe stopped ANONYMOUS posters, I was put back because everyone knew I was Anonymous Lady Jayne. I thought that freedom of choice was very important!! I now understand the purpose behind Richard's decision so, I retired my stubborn streak, gave in, and here I am on the blog again. This is how I feel: If I don't like the rules of the blog, then I can just get off of it. The SB Blog is not mine. I am a guest and will conduct myself as such. I will not bash men. I gave birth to three of them, and I see what some of these girls can be like. They won't even wash a Waterford, Irish crystal glass. Just leave it sitting in the sink for my son to wash. And, don't you know, I have my opinions. I will take a look at how you can communicate with me on my blog, but to be perfectly honest, at this time I really don't want a lot of messages. "All the Best", Jayne P.S. Willemina, did you notice that I retired the Lady Jayne. First, the ANONYMOUS, THEN THE LADY and now only the Jayne. That title really does not suit me. No royalty in my family, just a grown up little girl from a lower middle class family, but with a lot of class inherited from my father.

Just kidding but enough that we have not found her yet.

They said that she is a blonde now!!!

Having fun, we are working on a Kansas City Cowboy to pick us up from Navy Peir in a Limo to go on the town. We have already promised him that we'll dub him:

Dear Richard and Ladies

I'm back just from another of my own fun adventures just in time to enjoy your wonderful pictures from my home town. Chicago has so MUCH.
Also in catching up with some of the reading:the Chicago facts and trivia were wonderful.

Glad to here there will be some decisions soon!

I bet this head dress could take me out of the running, but I will go down having fun.

I have a lot of catching up to do.

ARE YOU HAVING FUN !!!?? :) :) :)

Hey "Chicago-Joe"!
I bet you have your hands full :)
Anyway, I am working tonight, flying to the Carolinas, and wanted to know if I have to make a reservation for dinner on Saturday. I checked out "meeting SB" on the web but it stated it was not finalized so thought I would ask incase I missed a blog along the way.
What's Cooking? :) Connie's menu, I hope :)
Joe, could you please
put me on the reservation list, I would appreciate the help. :)
Do you have an ear-to-ear grin on your face? Michelle

Lady Base Camp said...

Love the pics! There's Paula right up front looking wonderful! and Sturgis Improv- If I saw a Chicago Improv group I would not want to come home, I would run away with the circus!
A scary thought just occurred to me. Is anyone else wondering if Richard has a whole set of those hats, chartreuse with beaded rhinestone plum hat band? (He’s certainly a plum, ripe for the picking, now isn’t he ladies?) Electric blue w/ faux snake skin , Naples yellow with fuchsia feather boa band? Can you imagine THE HATS going through customs!--each one in its separate little theme case? Funny. . . no? The customs agents breaking into song, line dancing –“Purple Haze all through ma brain! I’d travel with Jimi Hendrix any day if he were drug free, healthy and, of course, alive. If he were IN A BOX I’d travel with him not alive. No WEEKEND AT BERNIE’S for me.
Benny Hinn’s new wide pin stripe suit and tie that has some kind of graphic minutia I can’t figure out would be so perfect for those hats! (I can watch Benny Hinn for about 4.7 minutes for a little character study but mostly to see what he is wearing.) What’s with the wide pinstipes and clashy ties anyway? First Benny, now Leno and even Charlie Rose- who at least had a purple tie, great Zuess! Everyone’s going CHICAGO!
I can't wait to see the Hat Party hats!!! I’m going to have fun making mine. IT’s going to be VERY Chicago!

in the meantime, you gals have fun, and give RR, Joe, and Umberto big bear hugs FOR ME...

Dear Friends,

To answer some e-mails and other questions, No, I am not in Chicsgo now.

I interputed Richard's 1st gathering was to match who he could with Paperwork, etc. I asked enough, maybe even too many, questons at MB that I think he remembers me, which was one of my goals.

I did post some new photoes on my blog that just don't show well here.

I can surely appreciate his work and task because, even just as an ordinary person, I have already gotten JUNK Mail Comments that I clicked the trash can on. Goooosh--- some people do different things then I have time for.

I will try to post my untouched photo on the blog in a moment. I think it is good because we both share the same kind of smile (And that came naturally)

Thanks for asking.

Hi Mary!
I just checked out the new pictures on your blog and left you a comment. I like the way you keep changing the scene on your posts...just when i was going to get out my trusty magnifying glass, I clicked on your blog and there they were bigger than life! (well, not exactly, but at least I could see them).My eyesight isn't what it used to be.

You're a fun lady and I so enjoyed meeting you in MB, even though it was brief...I wish I could do it over again to really get to know some of the very special being one of them!

Friday, September 30, 2005 5:10:24 PM  
willemina said...

So much for getting off at 1pm this afternoon. I ended up working until 3 and then went to spend a little time with my mom. Now I'm home and contemplating washing my car...but I'd rather do something a cruise on a beautiful lake or something?

When you're single, you learn to do so many things for; mow the lawn, wash the car, take out the trash, right ladies?

I am going to spend a few minutes reading todays posts and may have some more comments later...

I've gotten many e-mails asking how someone who's never been to Chicago knows so much about it?

The Internet ladies you can find out everything about anything on the www. Sorry it was so long though...the scrollitis thingy...

Hi Jayne...AKA Lady Jayne
Yes, I did notice the name changing :) hey, are you REALLY Jayne?

Your blog is fine just the way it is...especially if you don't want lots of comments...although, come to think of it...I don't get many comments on my blog...maybe no one is interested in me or my life? So sad, oh well, I will survive and my life will go on. By the way, I posted some new pictures on my blog last night...just in case anyone is interested???

desertfox aka desertflowers
Cute picture! Someone had to add that fox in there electronically! No way could those foxhounds miss him!!! LOL I love it!!!

Cathy in Chicago who used to be Cathy in Carolina
I love the pictures on your blog! Thank you and I want to comment on what you were wearing last night...You look absolutely adorable...I want the exact same outfit, hat included. (Although it may not look as great on me) look fabulous! I'll be checking your blog often for more pictures from Chicago!

Sunni I too have to get out my trusy magnifying glass to have a close up look at the photos...
As for drinking...did someone say drinking? Well, I am only a social drinker. I love a good glass of wine (hey, like I've said before, I live in beautiful wine country in Central California and it's in our blood...anyone see the movie "sideways"? there you go...
Actually, I get my high on life. I live life to the fullest and enjoy every minute of it...

Ellen aka Droma
I am an Oma but not recently that I know of...maybe someone else? I have 4 grandchildren ages 16,7,5 and 4. Although I would love to have another...Yep, I do all that manly stuff around the house now that I don't have a man around, ie; mow the lawn, wash the car, take out the trash, although I no longer shovel snow :)

CJ I hope you're feeling better soon. I have only had one UTI that I can recall and that was when I was living in Korea. I had to go to the emergency room late at night it hurt so bad. Overall, I have been very lucky with my health and I remember I was very miserable at that time. I'm sure Dr Oma will have some good advice for you...

Lois aka operawench
Glad to hear you also mow your own lawn. Mine isn't all that big either...I like the compliments from my neighbors though, Yesterday as I was mowing, a passerby stopped to offer me $750,000 for my house! I said "It's worth more than that to me and it's not for sale". Tomorrow I'll post a pic of my house on my blog...with the georgeous lawn :)

You mentioned Zoe and I've been wondering if anyone has heard from her? She's a sweetheart and I miss her...

Well, I may have some more comments later but for now I think I'll wash my car...

I checked Brenda's blog and she has some great comments about Chicago! I almost felt like I was there too. Some great pics too...and I'm sure we'll get more because that's just the kind of click girl she is..

Can I tell a story? I drove up to Phoenix to meet our one and only desertflowers aka desert fox by Richard and arrived around 7a.m. She was looking desert foxy even at that early hour. We spent 10 hours in a Kia , only stopping to pee and get bananas. The rest is the history you will read about in our book!

Hey Dana Point Lois I know - why in the heck are we sitting at home? I spent the entire day with my sister picking out fabric to make customs drapes for their brand new custom home. I have no life. LOL I love soft jazz and was just listening to "Deep Purple" do you remember that song?

Sunni I know you don't remember it you and Linda are too young. GRIN

Sunni I know Linda was up late every night posting on the NNBBSH site and now look at us. BNDC doesn't have any photos of the events. Our gals need to get together on this picture posting thing. They're probably fast asleep and forgot all about us. Darn it.

Hello Ladies,
Hope you all enjoyed Brenda's photos and commentary on her Blog. What a sweetie she is!

I have to agree with the other MB ladies that I'm kind of glad not to be in Chicago this weekend. Richard has enough to handle, omg!!! I loved the MB event in that it was casual and we were close to the beach! I loved being able to sing there too.

Well I didn't sit home tonight but I did keep a watch on my watch and thinking about what the Chicago group was doing. I went to the movies with a friend and saw "Constant Gardener". Wow it's a powerful movie that I hope isn't true, so much corruption in the world. The movie is an excellent conversation piece and I loved, loved the music soundtrack!

Richard, I'm so happy to hear that you got out and boogied with your Badd Self...LOL! I would have been dancing all night. I hope the band was good.

Joe, thanks so much for all the photos posted. I'm so looking forward to the cruise on Dude!

I am up way too late but I didn't get home from the movies until 1:30am.

Love to you all,

JOE: The pictures I took on the Cruise are wonderful. I'm puting them in the mail today. The one of you and the little girl dancing is great. It should go on the Blog.

Ladies this was a wonderful, fun experence for everyone involed. I'm so blessed that I was able to be here. I've met so many more wonder women.

Dinner at LaCantina was fabulous.
The Cruise with the great food, live band, firework and a "whole lot of shakin going on" will always be a fun memory.

By the way you should see our SB shake his BOOTIEE pretty cute.
I loved the way he joined in with all of us and it was a fun nite.
Joe and Umberto were pretty adorable, too.
