Hawkeye tailgate and the Chicago skyline





Nice finger, Sharon

Hawks take the field at Soldier Field in Chicago
Moriah seemed to have a little bit better week. She seemed a bit more alert and had better focus in her eyes. She did however break the head gear on her wheelchair again. Maybe she's trying to escape. Other than that no major changes in her condtions. Once again many thanks to those of you who have visited her and prayed for us. Don't underestimate the power of your actions. It means a great deal to me.

Labor Day weekend in Chicago was great. Went to the Cubs game on Friday, sat in the Bartman seats but couldn't get bring the Cubbies through as they got waxed by the Astro's. Visited Navy Pier that evening for dinner and the Hawkeye huddle. Then a evening of Jazz which was very cool.
Saturday visited the shores of Lake Michigan, the marina area, and a long walk to Soldier Field. Personally I liked the old stadium better, except for the benches. Great seats and the Hawks won ugly 16 to 3 over Northern Illinois.
Great City
Great Company
Stayed at the Burnham Hotel in downtown Chicago which I believe was the first steel and glass "skyscraper" built around the turn of the century. All 13 stories of it. If any of you have read "Devil in the White City" you would be familiar with this building and Charles Burnham, the chief architect of the buildings for the Chicago Worlds fair in 1894. Very Cool.

Taking it easy this week in Iowa City, then onto Austin, Tx next week for the Austin City Limits music festival.

"Make no little plans"
Charles H. Burnham

But there is a road to glory,
Somewhere hidden in the past,
Behind the door,
Behind the treasure,
Behind the mask.

Show me thy ways, O Lord; teach me my paths.
Psalm 25 v4

Hope you all are on the right road and hope to see you along the way.
God Bless
