Chicago Pictures From St. Patrick's Day

Enjoy these pictures from Chicago taken in March.

The St. Patrick's Day green river with the Chicago Tribune building in the background.

Green River and Columbus Drive Bridge
Lake Michigan Waves
Bird house for Purple Martins
Mosaic in the Bryn Mawr area. It's much bigger than what's pictured. We found it completely by accident - a lovely surprise.

The US and Chicago Flags. Each of the 4 stars represents a significant event for Chicago.
1st = the evacuation and burning of Fort Dearborn in 1812
2nd = the great fire in 1871
3rd = Chicago World's Fair in 1893
4th = 1933 World's Fair
More Green!
Curvy Green

My sister took this one. The proximity of the hot dog car to the church made her chuckle.

I just LOVE Chicago!

In regards to your previous post...don't be afraid to ask for what you want...that's why women's salaries are so much lower than men's, because we're too timid to ask for it! JUST GO FOR IT GIRL!

And in regards to your comment on my post...citizenship grades are things like work habits and behavior..."follows instruction", "resolves conflict appropriately", "attentiveness in class"...those types of things...theres like 10 - 15 different categories that they're graded on

I haven't been to Chi-town in YEARS! Seeing these pictures makes me long for the Windy City! That Green water was...creepy! Like some sci-fi horror flick creepy!

How you doing on the J.O.B.?
