Once again, you all pulled through and gave Jack and I some wonderful suggestions for our trip to Chicago last week. I don't think I've spent that much time with him since he got his driver's license. 
Thank you, we had a blast (I know he'd say the same).
Here's a little bit of what we discovered.

Got to our hotel at 3:00
Image
On a Segway Tour by 5:00

Huh?
Image
On "The Ledge" at the Sky Deck at the top of Willis (Sears) Tower. 
Image
It's 103 stories high.
Amazing views of an amazing city.

These clouds turned REAL!. We were on the top of a boat taking an architectural tour of the city and didn't quite get finished by the time the storm hit. Real RAIN! Real THUNDER! Real LIGHTENING! Real SOAKED! It continued for about 2 hours. Neither one of us minded the least bit. Real FUN!

Oh to be 21...

The Lagunitas Craft Beer Brewery Tour. So much Fun!!
The IGC Show (the real reason for the trip) didn't disappoint.  Found so many new items I hope to have at
The Dragonfly soon.

Tillandsias are coming.
I've been asking Anne for quite some time now if we could have these quirky little "air plants" (because she IS the plant expert around here). She said not until we find a reliable grower and learn all about them. Ta Da! Found one! Now we "just" have to build the frames to display them on and I promised to learn how to care for them. So many varities and so many ways to use them.
I'll let you know when they arrive.

Marcus Lemonis was the Keynote Speaker on Wednesday morning. He is a businessman, inventor, television personality and philanthropist. who's currently the chairman and CEO of Camping World and Good Sam Enterprises, and the star of TheProfit, a  reality show about saving small businesses.  He was inspiring, smart, funny & worth getting up early for. His message was consistent with what I've heard again and again recently. Make it personal. Be vulnerable. Build relationships. Have fun.  Now, I'll have to tune into his show.
