Schory: As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
Orals:
I wanted to be professional baseball player. And No. 2 in line was a veterinarian. I became a veterinarian. I used to own a place on the west side of Chicago, the Forest Glen Animal Hospital. I sold it last year. Now I fill in and help out at various animal hospitals in the area.

Swiss orange chip by Swenson's. It's got an orange flavor with chocolate chips in it.

Bien Trucha in Geneva

Schory: What is an interesting fact about yourself?
Orals:
One year we rescued five puppies they got out of a house fire. They brought them all to our clinic in Forest Glen. They were little poodle-mixes. So it was a pleasant ending for something that could have been really sad.
