Jim Colyer on Lake Shore Drive
June, 1966 - Chicago
Cousin Larry and I were talking after having watched "The Avengers" on TV. We got the idea of driving to Chicago. We took off in the night. In Chicago, we drove along Lake Shore Drive and saw State Street. We went to a burlesque show. We ran out of ideas quicky and headed home. I learned one must have a mission if he is to travel. Chicago sits on Lake Michigan.
November, 1974 - Chicago
I drove to Chicago to see Burton Cummings & The Guess Who. I saw the group 3 times, 1974-75. Their music inspired me in my efforts to get my degrees and get into the work force.
