A characterful house and a delicious and hearty breakfast. But Kathleen and John are the highlight. We enjoyed our wide-ranging conversation and left as friends. Kathleen is a one-person band on behalf of Shinnston. And, yes, she also plays in the town band. John is a talented artist and fun guy. If you want to know about Chicago, he's your guy. Hey, John, let's play two. Go Cubs.
