My daughter was doing some consultant work in Chicago during 9/11/01, all flights in or out were canceled for about three weeks so she had to stay in Chicago. She became familiar with Chicago and wanted to take us down town to show us the sites. I have a lot of pain in my feet, legs, and back and so I knew I could not stay up with them and that they would worry about me so I told them I would stay at the motel and visit with some of the men off the USS Monticello. I took them to the train station just a few blocks from the motel; it was about an hour ride to the Union Station down town Chicago. From the looks of the pictures they had a wonderful time. My daughter has a little gadget that tells her how many steps, miles, and up or down stairs with her, she said they walked about ten miles around down town Chicago. Wow I am proud of them except for one shirt they bought me they did no shopping, there was too much to see and do to do any shopping.
