2017 Chicago auto show, Birthday dinner, new car and more!

My annual visit to the Chicago Auto Show occurred in February 2017  with the American MGB Association.   Bruce Magers birthday was celebrated at Prime and Provision where the food and atmosphere was great.  Also shown is a Cubs World Series pennant at my mother’s grave, Margies birthday shirt, White Sox opening day and the 2017 British Car Autojumble in Wheaton, Illinois.

I purchased a 2017 Honda CR-V Touring as a result of comparisons at the show in May .

Florida Trip 2011

Just got back from Florida where I had a great time in the warm weather.  Went to the beach several times and the Miami zoo.  I also had a chance to visit with long time friend John Hennigan who now lives in Dania Beach and is a realtor.   I made appointments to look at several single family homes in the area including Dania Beach, Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale.  Many of the homes looked great but I am not quite ready to have a second home in Florida but would like to someday soon.

New Dog – Chuck

Chuck in Back Yard

I got another dog at PawsChicago on Clybourn Avenue in Chicago. His color reminded me of Rusty and so does his temperament. He is house trained, vaccinated, neutered, micro-chipped and house trained. The donation fee for the adoption included the first vet visit and dog training. His name is Chuck and he is an 11 month old Labrador retriever mix.
