Garry Meier is back!
Funny thing - I never listened to talk radio until we moved to a new office and I could hear Joey's radio. I found it interesting to hear people talking about 'stuff'. Some I liked, some - not so much, but still I listened. Couldn't help it. Last year 'they' brought Garry Meier back, then, a few months later they changed to an 'all music' format and he was off the air again. And I had just started to like him. I switched to WGN because Amy said to, and they just made the announcement that Gary will be doing the 1: to 4: time slot left by John Williams when he went to mornings. I like him (John Williams) a lot, too - he sounds just like Alan Alda.
Graduated from Lake Park H S in Medinah, went to secretarial school, worked a few years, married and had 3 great kids. I have 2 grandsons, 4 grand dogs (Griffons)& 2 grand cats (Maine Coon). When my first 2 children were in grade school I was a professional volunteer, active in PTA, Elmhurst Children’s Theatre & Church stuff. I started a small business while expecting my third and have been working ever since. I'm a fibre artist combining cloth, yarn, and photography. Carolee Creations, Inc. is the corporate name - SewSweet Dolls was the first business. Portrait Pillows, Bags and more . . . is my latest venture, started in ‘98, after my husband died. My daughter and I make custom gift items incorporating photographs - purses, coasters, jewelry, ornaments, quilts, etc. I love going to work every day-my studio is full of fun things! I am in a serious relationship with Bob, a retired Psychology prof, since the beginning of the century. We are involved in activities at First Church and in Elmhurst. When we have time we like to travel. I take sewing classes when I can fit them in, recently learned to weave, and would like to draw and paint again someday.
