Here In Chicago On Central Time

This above photo is from the window of the shuttle van on the way to our hotel.

A city bus, bearing a message that gets me time & time again....

We arrived at Midway Airport in Chicago ahead of schedule, touching down at about 1:40pm. My husband & I sat together at a window, just about on the right front wing. Our seating companion for the flight was a very nice young man who had grown up in Chicago, & was traveling back to the windy city to help his mother move to New England. I told him that I had lived in the Chicago area for a little time as a young girl, that I had loved it, & was so very happy to be going back there together with my husband. Other than the young children sitting behind us, with their video games blasting, it was a very good flight.

Just when the flight was nearing it's end & our pilot announced we were about 100 miles outside of Chicago, & we were going to be landing, I leaned into the slight space of my seat, where I could see the little boy sitting behind me & said, "You really ought to lower the volume on your video game, you know you're not the only person on this plane." He lowered it several decibels, it was a great help, & our landing was perfect.

Happy Trails Cher! Good for you for "parenting" that boy in the plane. It takes a village, indeed. I'm looking forward to following along on your journey!
