'Sunrise Over Chicago')
Today we have a series of studies titled
'You Don't Have to be Rich to Stay in Chicago if it's Only for a Few Minutes'
The first photo in this series is missing. It was a closeup of several
jars filled with a year's worth of loose change. $119. 43. It was lovely.
Parking at this museum:
Chicago may know that the rest of the nation is muddling through a recession. It just chooses rise above it.
The higher the menu prices at a restaurant, the longer the waiting list to be seated.
Every store bulges with shoppers. Occasionally you see one fly out the revolving doors because the strain is too great. But, with all the courage and fortitude of a Midwestern Consumer, the popped-out shopper will brush itself off, grasp its credit card and charge back in.
Yup, there's gold in them thar hillocks.
Sometimes it is hidden. The Prude's husband requested a photo, not of the upscale vehicle residing on this wheel, but the pricey, prestigious Bosch caliper nestled behind the rim.
Silver and gold. It's everywhere in Chicago.
Except in The Prude's pocket. She and her family have done their bit to keep Chicago sailing atop the economic slump.
We'll be expecting a thank you card.
