When I looked at the version of tkinter as suggested by Chris Angelico earlier in this thread it returned '/Users/chip/anaconda3/lib/python3.6/tkinter/’.  This is obviously not he build Apple provided and I believe Apple’s version of python is version 2.7 and I need to use 3.6 for my current efforts.

Okay, that looks good - it means you're getting tkinter from the same
place that you're getting Python from.

Yeah, try the vanilla installers before reaching out to Anaconda. Or
use "brew install python".
