Harry, did you put away your snow-thrower yet?
Yeah, I think we're safely out of snow season by now.

Born in Chicago and lived across from Midway Airport. Grew up mostly in Oak Lawn. Moved to California and 5 years ago to Arizona. Chicago had the best food. Pizza in California and Arizona sucks for the most part. My favorite hobby shop was called "Trost Hobby Shop " and if my memory serves it was on 63 rd. st. Any chance it is sitll there ?
Closed many years ago (2006?).

Wow ! Riverview ! Theres a blast from the past. I was born in Chicago and went to Riverview several times as a child. The one ride that scared me was called the 'Wild Mouse" if I remember correctly. That ride had a overhang in front and I swore it would never make the sharp turns. Moved to a suburb called "Oak Lawn ". It was a nice place to live. Then moved to California and then Arizona. Sure had much better food in Illinois.
I remember Riverview, my parents took me there when I was just a little kid. My high school is right next to where Riverview was... if you were in a room on the south side of the school you could see right into Riverview... it was literally right next door.
BTW... I just got in from shoveling about half a foot of snow. All of you guys east of me... coming your way!

Food? Well, we have "Chicago-style" pizza (mmmmmmmmmm!)... Chicago-style hot dogs (no ketchup! Ever!)... roast beef "sammiches".... and on and on. Yep, we got it goin' on food-wise, but the laughing stock of the country when it comes to political corruption, dirty deals, payoffs, bribes, and general sleaze.
