JIM & MICHAEL COLYER IN CHICAGO 2011

CHICAGO 2011

Michael and I drove to Chicago for a June 18 baseball game between the New York Yankees and Chicago Cubs. The Yankees won 4-3. They have won 3 out of the 5 times we have seen them. We found Wrigley Field on the north side of town after cruising by the Sears tower and along Lake Shore Drive. It is good to get out on the road with my son.

November, 1974 - Chicago

I drove to Chicago to see Burton Cummings & The Guess Who. It was funny because the concert was in an auditorium and somewhat formal. I lit a cigar, and an usher came and made me put it out. I saw The Guess Who three times, 1974-75. Their music inspired me to return to school and get my degrees.

June, 1966 - Chicago

My cousin 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 an old time burlesque show. We ran out of ideas and headed home. I had read Theodore Dreiser's novel, Sister Carrie, about a girl who went to Chicago to find work. One must have a mission if he is to travel. Chicago sits by Lake Michigan.
