a fantastic new resource (showroom open only a year) in chicago for quality hardwood case goods and it’s locally owned. amish craftsmanship. great stuff, great prices. visit their showroom at 1800 n. clybourn. ask for ted.
you’ll be happy you popped in. free parking lot in front too.
i use my horn much more now as i warn drivers when i have to veer into oncoming traffic, or come dangerously close to the drivers in the next lane over, to avoid bone chilling drops into horrificly huge potholes and a possible crash or axle separation. it’s a nervous making situation. i’ve quit tailgating. i can now follow the evasive paths much more safely.
it wont change here soon. rahm announced a war on potholes, monday and friday. the busiest traffic days in town. good on ya, mayor.
these days there are always homeless men at the expressway on and off ramps i use. there never use to be any men with signs but not these days. things have changed.
i have these dollar coins i get for toll booths so i give those out.
yesterday, while heading to a client’s job downtown i was pre-occupied mentally i guess. a guy i hadn’t seen before, missing 3 fingers on one of his hands, at the fullerton on ramp came up to the window. i gave him a dollar coin.
he told me to put my seatbelt on. i did and thanked him for reminding me.
i used to see labelle (the group) at the original metro (belmont and sheffield, second floor) back in the day when they were so out there, yowzers. heavy astro punk funk. that was a great venue for cutting edge music.
