And Finally…

Our last day in Illinois dawned like the previous ones- sunny and mild. Much of the crew was already gone and the house felt nearly empty with only 11 remaining! We headed into downtown Chicago to see a matinee performance of “Wicked”. The show was enjoyed by all, despite the fact that we were seated in the last 3 rows of the upper balcony. A leisurely dinner at the Italian Village followed the show. We meandered the streets of downtown and visited the famous Marshall Field’s (now Macy’s) before heading home.

I, for one, am ready to return to my home in Seattle. The weekend has been filled with food, laughter, and belly rubbing. But the “bountiful Bondis” must part ways until next time.
