Do people still send postcards?
We attended a family wedding this weekend in beautiful downtown Chicago. Since I don't spend much time in the city I seem to always approach it like a tourist. The reception for the wedding was on the 95th floor of the John Hancock building. Yeah, 95th floor. I know my children were amazed at the view. I don't know if they realize that I was even more amazed. Tonight's pics are what I would envision seeing on a postcard if someone visited the 95th floor of the Hancock building. The first shot is a vintage look at Navy Pier, I guess, Chicago's version of Coney Island. The 2nd and 3rd are views out some of the windows of the building. Absolutely spectacular. The kids got a kick out of the swimming pools at the tops of some of the buildings and actually asked if we could live in one of those buildings. I said, "Sure, as soon as one of you makes your first 5 million, I'll be glad to move in with you in one of those buildings."
