A sluggard's view of a lovely city

Recently we were in Milwaukee.
What a beautiful town. I never did understand why Laverne, Shirley, Lenny and Squiggy abandoned it for the smog-choked shores of 1960's southern California.

I snapped this while my husband was driving so I could read it later

Golda Meir, Prime Minister of Israel in the early 70's, grew up in Milwaukee.

It was hard to find a way to Lake Michigan, only one block to the east. We followed this couple. In my imagination, they came from the Golda Meir House.

For many years I lived in spitting distance of Lake Michigan. I never ever got tired of it.

Sometimes I just have to get artsy.
Yes, that is how strong the wind was blowing.
My friend Lori at 'Visits and Verse' (google her!) would have told you fascinating facts about all the above. She is a researcher. I am a sluggard.

I can't stop laughing--you caught me by surprise this morning. I was just thinking as I scrolled down, that I wished you had included some descriptive captions. Then I read your bottom lines. Too funny!

Loved the photos!!

My favorite photos are the purpley vine leaves and the one of the building with the sunlight reflecting in the window. I love Lori's comment! It IS funny! Nicely done My Favorite Prude!

Sluggardly photos are better than no photos. Thanks for the tour, Prude.
