Chicago - that's my home town


Jen took this picture with my camera from out the window of our minivan last Saturday. I love, love, love, it because it captures exactly the Chicago I lived and worked in for over a decade. And while I was dying, three years ago, to get away from the traffic, the miles and miles of concrete and metal, the raucous 4th of July celebrations, the postage stamp size backyards and libraries, I can't help, when going to back to visit, feeling nostalgic for the sights and smells unique to one of the greatest cities ever.

Chicago...fooey! Houston is better!

(Just giving you a hard time, of course! Tell Troy I still haven't gotten over the White Sox beating my Astros in 4 straight in the '05 World Series!)

Amen to that, friend! I long for the city days (not all the time, really, but I do miss it terribly).
