Woodman’s

(In Appleton) So, some folks do the cites, some do golf-courses, some go to malls. I like supermarkets.

So, I took a whole bunch of pictures of Chicago. Because you can always delete. So, here’s a second one. But, to tell you the truth, I think if you’ve seen on city, you’ve seen them all…

“CarolAne! Will you quit knitting and take some pictures! We’re in Chicago!” “Umm, OK, what should I take?” “I don’t know, the skyline or something…I’m trying to get through 5 lanes of traffic!”
