Chicago WAS good for my mental health (as expected)

Last edited Sat Sep 16, 2017, 10:38 AM - Edit history (1)

I met our famous mopinko while there, and we had a lovely visit. We went to her favorite local Mexican place and dined well. I enjoyed seeing her urban farm (or whatever you wish to call it, mo Since I was escaping a hurricane that brushed past Orlando to the west, I was a bit anxious about my home's status. So, I had to cut our visit short, go back to the hotel, go to bed immediately, get up at 6 AM the next day and start drivinggggggggggggg

Everyone was quite polite during my visit. The Monday night nightlife on Rush Street is pretty incredible. In Orlando it's quite morbid on Monday night.

I don't think a hostel arrangement is for me. I had a female roommate (?!), who I have to say was quite brave to share a room with an unknown man (me). I just like my privacy and since I've had stuff stolen during my life, I'm not real trusting of strangers with my property. I chose to buy a key lock for my locker. Next time in Chicago I'll just get a cheap hotel out in the burbs and commute to downtown or wherever. Hotels in downtown are like $100 a night minimum, but in January probably cheaper I'd guess.

Thanks again, Mo, you rock! So does "Winston Churchill", your other dog, your chickens and your great plants!

1. Love Chicago

Wouldn't want to live there because of the taxes (Or in Illinois at all, considering how it's collapsing) but I always love going to Chicago for a day or two.

2. Illinois is not collapsing.

Our Democratic majority is holding our state up just fine. We have not gone the way of Wisconsin or Kansas. We are about to get rid of Ruiner, our repiggie governor, whose margin of victory was paper thin.

I am proud of our senators.

Look to your own state. You have many more problems. I am not talking about the hurricane. That was not your fault.
