Better to get off the train at this station. Than to do it later, when it’s too late. Remember Time doesn’t wait!
Another Chicago adventure today. A Metra train ride into the city was on my agenda. My sister dropped me off at the Elgin station, and my son Matt was meeting me at the Western Avenue stop. It sounds very adventurous, but I never know where the heck I’m going. I rely on family to point me in the right direction.
It was just about an hour ride, and Matt was there waiting. It was pretty cold out, but the sun was shining. Felt like 3 degrees according to the weather map app. Matt offered to call an Uber to take us to lunch, but I was bundled up and ready to walk. (Plus, I haven’t gotten much walking in these past weeks.)
Whenever I visit, we go to the local hot dog joint, called Fatso’s. (Appropriately named) The Chicago hot dog.
After the dog and fries, we took a frigid walk back to his place. It was a good three miles or more, then three flights up the stairs. I guess I got my steps in today. And…we’ve only just begun. More adventures tonight.
