Following an afternoon field trip to Lincoln Park, a report was confirmed that NBC is dropping the original Law & Order franchise from its primetime schedule.
Say it ain’t so Peacock. It will be interesting to see if Liam will grow up and remember his Dad watching Law & Order religiously just like I remember my parents watching classic cop shows Cagney and Lacey and Hill Street Blues. (Fun Fact – Did you know that we live two blocks from the police station used for the TV series? It is now home to the UIC Police. Check the link for footage.)
Although not my favorite L & O franchise–Special Victims Unit tops my list–the original initiated me into this classic series. Jerry Orbach was the actor who really epitomized the police drama in this era. There is talk about a new series beginning, Law & Order: Los Angeles. Where’s the Windy City edition, Dick Wolf?
Back to Lincoln Park. Land of Nod was the destination and SulliMom finally picked out her very own diaper bag. She went with a Skip Hop selection–fine choice. It’s no Diaper Dude, but a close second.
After the Land of Nod stop we stopped by The Container Store. It might be the greatest store. Ever. I’m a sucker for storage containers, office stuff and paper products. I guess we should have purchased the My Dad Is A Geek onesie we saw at Land of Nod.
Our goddaughter Tess flew into the very Windy City this morning with her mom Sarah. I can’t wait to see them. I was hoping to get out there today or tomorrow, but it looks like Thursday. We’ve been Skyping with them from Long Island and Tess is growing up so quickly.
I really can’t wait for her to interact with SulliChild. I think that will be really cool.
With that said, SulliMom made her way to Barrrrrrington to hang out, while I did a little UIC-WIU softball announcing. So I am home alone. Which means…
Mac ‘N Cheese and watching the Titanic.
Just me watching the Titanic.
Anytime I miss my wife, I look for the James Cameron classic on television and hunker down.
Our child is in trouble.
LASTLY: Apparently, Jim Mateja, the long time auto writer is calling it quits. One of the stories featured is an article he composed about auto companies trying to accommodate women who were expecting among other family needs. It made for a funny photo…
I don't think I'd do well with being pregnant.
