Little mouse goes to the big city...

Early tomorrow morning I'm headed for Chicago--a twelve hour drive, but oh, getting away for a little while is going to feel soooo good...even if it is to work. Maybe just maybe (hopefully!) I'll even get to spend some time at The Art Institute of Chicago. We'll see. No matter what, I'm sure I'll eat some wonderful ethnic cuisine. But internect connection? Oh, the adventure of it all! :)

Have a wonderful time!
Hope you get to the art institute. I have only been there a couple of times --- but I find it a very special place to visit. My favorites are the "Thorne Rooms"

Oh Chicago. I used to live within walking distance of the Art Institute. And they have that great new park all around it now. Some of my friends call that statue (I think at Michigan and Randolph) the magic bean. I have no idea what the real title of it is. I love that they call it the magic bean because it grows on you! I could sit and stare into it for hours because it changes every minute. Can't wait to hear about your adventure. Hope the weather cooperated.

OK, had to get the actual info on that sculpture. It's called Cloud Gate ... much more lyrical than magic bean!
