Hello From Chicago!

Howdy!

My names Pat, I'm 54 (so far). I live in the south suburbs of the Chicagoland area and I have a daughter, who will be getting married next year. Exciting times ahead for her and her soon-to-be hubby! He's a great kid too. I disc golf quite a bit in my spare time and sometimes make some noise with instruments. Lately, I've been stricken with the "Furniture Restoration" bug, so if anyone has a cure for that, please pass it on so I can have some free time back. lol

Seems like a friendly place for friendly chit chat.

Hello and welcome. Lots of 'Crafters' in here - including one who is brilliant with furniture - so I am sure you will fit right in.

Re: Hello From Chicago!

Hi and what a great time ahead with your daughter getting married. congratulations to them both.
Never been to your area of the USA but been to see Alcatraz - yosemite and surrounding area and of course Florida to see disney world and the kennedy space centre.

Have you ever been to the UK? or do you want to in the future?

Hi Plankton and welcome from Sweden. Visited Chicago four years ago. Loved it especially the walk along the river and the lake front down to the aquarium.

Re: Hello From Chicago!

Thanks all!

@realspeed - No, never been to the UK but would love to! I lived in Germany for 3 years while in the Army and I went to Holland/Amsterdam from there twice. Had a lovely time. I don't have any plans to leave the continental US anytime in the near future, but if I did I'd surely consider the UK. That or Bora Bora. I don't think I'd ever make it back from there though.



Again, thank you all for the warm welcome.
