Chicago, July 13–What happens when you are having so much fun going to outdoor concerts, celebrating the Fourth of July and strolling about town. If you are a blogger you take hundreds of photos but don.t take the time to doing anything with them. SCROLL TO BOTTOM FOR  BEST PHOTOS

Friends have asked for some photos. So to satisfy everyone, including followers, we depart from the usual entries to offer these.

The blogger is still basking in the honor of being named as a finalist for the best independent journalists in the State of Hawaii in 2015.

The blogger has had a life that is bookends. First a journalist, 40 years a pr guy, the last nine as a journalism again, columnist and author. I am getting more and more into the journalism thing, which I should have been all along.

Check out tomorrow when I post my coverage of a protest. As usual in Chicago, everyone act first class; protestors and the police who handled it just right.

Enjoy the photos while we go off to the new river walk for a drink while we watch the tourists boas and speedboats move down the Chicago River to Lake Michigan.CHICAGO FIRST WEEKb - 1
