OK, I know this whole thing isn't exactly house-related except to say that it involves a break from house "work". But the good news is we found the car. The good old City of Chicago in its wisdom decided to move it but we couldn't find out where until today. It was about 5 blocks away from our house parked on a side street.
Needless to say, I was quite grateful though emotionally drained. I think I'll be able to relax on the trip though after this little bit of drama.
I promise to take photos of cool Ludington architecture. It's actually the #1 tourist destination in Michigan- Steve's parents tell us. Being so Chicago-centric, I always thought it was New Buffalo, which I love and it's less than 2 hours from Chicago. There isn't a Walmart to be found anywhere near there and that makes it special to me.
And to make this post more legitimate: here's what will be waiting for us when we come back.
They look good enough to eat, don't they?
I feel like a kid and the brackets are christmas presents under the tree waiting to be opened.
and thanks Grex, Trissa and others for the kind words.
