Quirky Chicagoans

So, in my neighborhood, people shovel around their car, and then put furniture, buckets, or construction cones down to save their spot on the street. I used to think this was crazy, but after spending hours keeping my spot clear, I see the benefit. Besides, who wouldn't want to reserve a spot by your house? No one dares mess with it, either.

Here's my car, with my equipment.

New Years with Mom and Dad

We stood in line for over an hour to go skating downtown.... all the holiday crowds, I guess.

As we stood in line, we watched them put the spire on the 2nd highest skyscraper in the US. This is the new Trump Chicago Tower, second highest next to the Sears Tower.

Dad and I in the park downtown.

This is me giving my sister a foot bath / massage. Fun. :-)

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

My apartment. Kind of Christmassy.

Dad (Grandpa T) and Matthew. Playing horsey, like he did with us when we were little kids.

Matthew and me.
