get out the map

the mouse (and friends) are hitting the road later today. this time I'm heading north to the land of al capone, deep dish pizza, mrs. o'leary's cow, and architecture that shines. back to the north coast october 7th, no new posts until then.

p.s. record setting 3rd post for one day & coincidentally my 200th post on the mouse.

Congratulations on the 200th post! Great photo.

Now, about Chicago...I have an amazing book recommendation The Devil in the White City. Since you are a bookaholic I would be remiss not to pass along this title.

thanks everyone for the congrats. silly for me to mention the 200th post on the mouse, but numbers always jump out.

lettuce rest assured I've been snapping away like crazy - whoops I mean normal. and expect more to come!

gary - that book sounds great, mysteries set in historical context are always great fun! on that note, have I have a couple to recommend set you your fair city - altho I bet you have read them - caleb carr's THE ALIENIST; then the second in the 'series' THE ANGEL OF DARKNESS. what a cast populating these books. I hope he continues the series, but I expect he's moved on.

chicago is amazing. makes cleveland seem so tiny in comparison. but that's cool as schumacher quipped "small is beautiful"
