Cheecago



Back from the conference. Whenever I would get a little bored, I'd stare at the floor. This is the carpet.


What's this?


I realized I really love the juxtaposition of old and new, especially in buildings. So, took some photos. Or rather, I took photos and realized I loved the juxtaposition.


Old and new again.


Some more old building.


Detail of neat old building.


Neat design on concrete wall.


Came back to a couple tomatoes. One I had to throw out because too much gone. The other has three bites in it (the left one). The big one is clean and clear... We'll see how it is..


So, knee is better, because I realized it's a pinched nerve and I've attacked it. Still will go to the doctor to just have it all checked out. Lesson learned. Sorry I'm not writing more. Have to go to bed... Missed you all!

Upsidedown lakeside vacant volleyball court.....best guess.

I made O'Hare and turned around. Worked for me. LOL

Let us know how that good tomato tasted!

Photo #4 I have the exact same photo from my last trip from Chicago. I seriously know almost exactly where you were standing to take the picture. I also took one from across the road right between the lights changing so there were no cars in the way.

That first photo looks a bit like the Cleveland skyline!

I'm glad your knee is feeling better, and it's good that you're still having the doctor check it out.

Welcome back!

I miss Chicago! I lived there for 5 years, one of my favorite cities but too cold... I now live in Phx. As you can imagine, the weather was a huge factor.

I love those pictures of old buildings. We don't have that many in these here parts.

Is that one picture upside down or is it a reflection?

Welcome back :-) We missed you too!

Mel-stop that correct guessing!
Susan, how dare you!
Tara - thanks!
Sebastien -- it is nice, actually. Very friendly.
Laura, thanks so much. 3 days is a long time.
