MY KIND OF TOWN CHICAGO IS!! please watch the video, it is super by 


CHICAGO IS MY KIND OF TOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Chicago is my kind of town, I was born and raised in the Chicago suburds..burds as they call it..whenever I got a chance Iwe went downtown to Rush St. Michigan Ave and such..It has the most wonderful restaurants and lounges I always loved the piano bars, when we walked in lovely soft piano music was playing what fun.
When I wanted to just think and settle my mind -do to the fact that I had a my own restaurant and lounge and family and just wanted to relax. I found my little gettaway there at Lake Michigan it was so awesome to see and listen to the waves splash against the rocks…which was my favorite place to go ( the rocks ). Sailing on those waters are so awesomel!! From the boats you see the beautiful water front and with the high rises just beaming,.it is so wonderfull I know alot of you have been there so I am sure you agree with me.

I looked for the video, of course by Frank Sinatra because that was a song he always sang. But this video showed up and I couldn’t resist, it has little bits and pieces of the 30’s ..gee maybe even the 20’s..and all the way up till today…I have to say…it sure brought tears when I looked at it. great memories……I miss my home town…oh I forgot to mention Navy wonderful that is. and so fun..I.loved the video and wanted to share my home town with you…Art Inspired by music..Sherri :):)

    I am originally from Joliet so I really enjoyed the video too! I remember going at Christmas time to see the windows at Marshall Field’s and follow the story they told for an entire city block. Not to mention Skate on State. The last time I went for Christmas it was so cold (wind chill was -40) that even Santa headed home!!!

  • how funny Gina, yep it sure is a beautiful town..I lived in Palos Park, that was not to far from Joliet ….but every chance I got…I went downtown thru the underground streets and one time came up on Michigan Ave.and it was snowing and it was very close to Christmas and when I came up from the darkness down there..oh my goodness the Christmas white lights and the snow falling it is one of my most favorite memories…oh for sure it gets really really cold with the wind chill…ok neighbor…thank you for your comment ..oh right Marshall Fields are heard they are turning that into a Target….people are not to happy seeing as it was a historical site….enjoy your day…sherri:):)
