Happy Birthday, Chicago!!




From untamed swampland, it evolved into thriving towns, eventually becoming the beautiful sprawling city that it is today.

I'm talking about Chicago which turns 175 years-old this very day!

Being born and raised in the Windy City, I couldn't be prouder.

Happy Birthday, my love. You don't look a day over 150!

*mwah!*

As they said when I was there in the 1970's —

It was warmer in the Chicago than here in LA today!!! Anyways, grew up in Hoffman Estates, but I while I love it here, I do miss it. Sigh

David!

Have you ever been back to Chicago since? I'm wondering what you'd think of all the changes to the Windy City nowadays.

Thanks to all of you for commenting!

My town grew as a crossroads on an old plant road in 1796. It is small but beautiful. It has its idiosyncrocies. It does not look a day over 203 years old.

Really, it does not look a day over 70. They razed most of the distinctive downtown buildings after WWII to modernize the look.

All towns and cities have their own unique charm.
