On Friday of last week, Jack and I took off for Chicago to visit my Mom and sister. I just felt like I needed to go and I'm always thankful Jack is willing be go with me. It's a long and boring ride. I started out driving but when we stopped for a bathroom break Jack took over. He said I was a better passenger and he was a better driver. Wait a minute....that didn't sound right. Anyway I think he meant that I was "chatty" and could keep him awake! (That's how I'm taking it!) It's really only 5-1/2 hours but there's not much interesting to look at in Indiana! We started out with snow here but Midge assured me that their weather was going to be good and she didn't lie. We had sunshine and although it was chilly, I'll take a blue sky anytime!
