I won’t bore you with the over 300 pictures of various buildings that made we weak in the knees in Chicago. There are some shots though that may make you laugh or at least smile.
This was the view from our room…Um, no, this was actually a display at The Field Museum. They did have Sue, the largest, most complete and best preserved T. Rex in the world. (Yes, I just copied that sentence from the guide book)
This is Rudy, one of three dogs that Art’s sister has. Rudy was a big help in keeping an eye on me while I climbed up the ladder on the Frank Lloyd Wright house.
See what I mean? I don’t know if she thought that she would catch me or what, but she was on patrol.
This was in the front yard of one of the beautiful homes in Oak Park. It made me giggle.
A fountain, that seemed like it was designed more as an after thought. It was in a strange place, right next to the sidewalk. Cute, but sort of dangerous to passers by.
The evil squirrel! Doesn’t he look possessed??
Murphy Grace made it through at summer camp and was happy to see us. (I think) He has stuck pretty close ever since we got home.
There was a big storm at home while we were gone. Big by California standards and the house was trashed when we got home. Yeah, I could have done without that.
Still, there is no place like home and I find myself energized and ready to take on some new projects. Isn’t that what vacations are for?
