Our Trip East Part 3 a



Vacation continues, on this day we
are at Navy Pier. Heading for the
Ferris Wheel.

So many great city shots from
the pier.

Here it is!

Sights from our Gondola. Their website
states that visitors have unparalleled 360
degreed views of the city and Lake Michigan
and soars nearly 200 feet in
the air.

Fun stuff down below.

Very smooth ride. I think we took
three or four turns before the next
group got on.

Oops photo out of order...but
Garrett Popcorn, we hear is THE
popcorn of Chicago. Yes, we
bought some. Pretty good!

Beautiful container gardens and

On the top floor of the shopping area
of the pier is this beautiful indoor

Such a fun place with so much to see.

Next time our tour continues with the
afternoon activity on Pier day.

Thanks for your patience with my
posting absences, for some reason
school is just not going as smoothly
as hoped for. :(
Hopefully October will see a turn for
the better.

Our Trip East Part 2


First full day in the Windy City took
us to the Shedd Aquarium. Helpful hint:
GO EARLY. When we left the steps under
the awing were full.


These two sculptures are made from
debris found in lakes, oceans etc!


Inside the aquarium, zoomed view of
the waterfront.

Scenes from the Pacific White-Sided 
Dolphin show.


The Sea Lion stole the show for me.

Outside we went to see and touch the

Unbelievable that one can stick their
hand in and wait for a Stingray to come
by and let you touch it!

Back inside.


Water views  from outside the Aquarium.


A fun day but time to head "home" to
rest up for day two.

What Can YOU Do with Paper Clips?


Paper clips the office/home necessity.

But in this post I have some other
ideas for these hard workers.

1. Clean your computer:
Turn off your machine, cover the end
of a clip with a small piece of tissue
dipped in rubbing alcohol, carefully
run the covered clip end over your
keyboard, removing dust and grime.

2. Put on a bracelet by yourself:
Unfold the clip into an "S" shape,
hook one end through the clasp.
Hold the other end in your bracelet
hand and fasten the clasp with your
free hand.

3. Decorate a cake:
Use the end to create fine details in
the icing or straighten it out to hold
decorations and toppers in place
once the cake comes out of the oven.

4. Secure floral displays:
Use a straightened clip (s)
in place of expensive floral wire.

5. Transform a bra:
Turn a regular bra into a racerback
by connecting the back straps with a
clip, which can slide up and down
depending on your shirt style.

Did you know:

An estimated 11 billion paper clips
are sold each year in the U.S.?

Annual Trip


We made it to see the Sunflowers!
It was a hit or miss trip due to all
the rain we have been having.
