The View From The Top Of The World

Wife and I killed some time today in downtown Chicago, enjoying, among other things, a lunch date at the original Pizzeria Uno, just as my mother and father often did nearly 45 years ago (Dad: Yes, I had a martini, but no, I didn’t drink a beer with no hands … that trick remains solidly yours).

We also decided to do something purely Tourista and visit the Sears Tower Skydeck. It was a cloudy, rainy day here, and the visibility from floor 103 was anything but perfect. There’s something quite cool about being above the clouds, though, and I thought you’d enjoy some of the snaps I took from 1,500 feet. As always, click the pic for a larger version.

Ah, yes, I remember it all as though it were last week. Actually, (as Katherine Loy would say) it was about 50 years ago when we first ventured into the Uno Pizzeria on Ohio Street. Brings back a lot of memories.

Drink a beer with no hands? That is a talented and impressive man!!

Ha!!!! You may have gotten stature and good looks, but _I_ can drink a beer with no hands. All of a sudden Mother Nature's seemingly cruel joke makes sense. ;-)
