There is an enclosed walkway from her home
She has come to love Chi-town and has shared that love with her daughter, Delaney Rose Pierce Boggs. Since Delaney was a small child her mother has taken Laney to the home of American Dolls in Chicago. They make it a two or three day trip, just mother and daughter. Very Special!
I also like Chicago. My son, Mark, included it in an around the country motor trip he treated me to a few years ago. Our trip was also special. But my Chicago experience predates Mark or Kimberly. My first visit was on July 23, 1948 courtsey of the United States Navy. At age 17 I was very impressed as I headed for the nearby Great Lakes Naval Training Center and boot camp.

RUSH STREET. The action is on Rush Street. Where's the action on Rush Street? Why, just look for the red lights. Un Huh! Or, just ask one of the ladies you see around and about. They are friendly, very friendly. YEAH!
Kimberly is the most thoughtful daughter in that she keeps me fully aprised of her travel arrangements. Thanks Sis! Over the years my advice to Kimberly has been "Be a lady"! On her Chicago trips, however, I tell her to STAY AWAY FROM RUSH STREET AND DON'T TALK TO ANY SAILORS! As could be expected in 63 years, Rush Street is no longer a red light district.
I call Lanie, my youngest granddaughter, ROSEBUD, aged 10. I also remind her to stay off Rush Street and to refrain from talking to any sailors.
