Poncho seat. Proof Positive.5,000 dead bugs on the windshield later....I am back from the Blue. I am being labelled "anal" by Felicia, but I call it being a fan. Whatever the case I have some pictures coming soon - the old camera failed, but Felicia's worked. I'm excited about getting these back from the developer (and I hereby declare that I am going digital after this). I snagged my second painting from the show (if you haven't seen it, it's hard to explain) which was a spur of the moment thing. It's sitting next to its older brother now, and they look kool in the black light.

I also got to take in more of the city itself this time. We took a tour of the bay and part of the Chicago river on a tour boat. Lemme tell ya - the Sears tower is huge. It's even bigger when you're down on the river looking straight up at it. Trivia for you, courtesy Wendella boats - the Chicago river is the only one that flows in reverse, and was made to do that by the human race to control sewage. It takes about three months for the water in Lake Michigan entering the river to flow all the way to the Gulf of Mexico. Also included in the weekend was a brief jaunt through The Museum of Science and Industry, which is fantastic. I'd been there when I was much younger and didn't get to see enough of it then either. I think I will be taking the kids back with me to see that one - Adam woulda loved Engine 999 (the first man made machine to break the 100mph barrier) and all of the planes in there. So would I. ;)
