Summer in the City at last

Today is May 31, Memorial Day here in the emerald city on the southwestern shore of Lake Michigan. The coleus, sweet potato vine, daisies and coneflowers have replaced the tulips on Michigan Ave. A butterfly flutters outside, everyone is cruising Lake Shore Drive and The Plaza at the Park Grill has opened. Summer has arrived at last. The shackles of winter are now officially set asunder. Life is magical for the next few months under a warm summer sky. The duties seem a little lighter, the step a little more bouncy and the smile is genuine.

Let's go out and have some fun!
