It Is What It Is
It didn't take long for Deb to get the camera goin'. Too bad it was getting dark as we landed in the Windy City.
I spent last week in Chicago trying to figure out what needed to be done to get a job turned around. First order of business was to add manpower. Things are already cranked up & we should be back "on track" by Friday. I wanted to avoid that expression - this is, after all, a project for the railroad.
Flew home Friday night. Picked up a rental car Saturday. Filed our absentee votes. Packed up, drove to the airport (90 miles)on Sunday, flew though Nashville to Chicago. Landed at 6:30. Picked up a Chevy Tahoe at the rental joint. Drove to the hotel, unloaded the bags went to dinner, returned & unpacked & then CRASHED. Up at 5 this morning. Dog Tired today.
We're going to make the best of things. Chicago seems like a nice place, the people are certainly friendly, & we're going to try to see as much as we can, at least when I'm not working. We miss our beach, our palm trees, & warm weather but it is what it is.
I have no idea why this post is all underlined. I guess it's a technical problem. Whatever - the intent wasn't to stress any key points.
