We managed to fit in plenty of sight seeing in the short time we were in Chicago.  The weather was fabulous. We could have used many more days there.

  1. You really did get a lot of sightseeing in Chicago. So many interesting places.

    1. We missed you at the convention! Maybe we can have a get-together here in PA one day?

  2. It must have been a wonderful trip.
    The Thorne rooms are almost unbelievable. The railroad car is perfect!
    As always love the blog.

    1. They are unbelievable. To see them in person is to awed into wordlessness. If you ever get the chance, please go see them!
