Chicago attractions, in pictures

Like your dear Aunt Mable, here I am with pictures from my weekend in Chicago.  However, unlike your relatives, I'm a tad more sailor-like.

We went to the Adler Planetarium, The Field Museum, Shedd Aquarium and the Willis (Sears) Tower. Unfortunately, I left my camera in the lockers at Shedd.

The Adler Planetarium

The Gemini something or other--basically the clown car that brought astronauts back to Earth.

Astronaut Jim Lovell's suit--he's the dude that Apollo 13 is based on.  If it were my suit, it would have skid marks in it.  Fortunately, Captain Lovell had a smidgeon more courage.

Example of the Mars Rover.

Dumbo after Disney was done with him

Not so scary without Spielberg

Whales really are big-boned

Who's your mummy??

The Tower Formerly Known as Sears

Hey Sarah Palin, can you see Russia from here?

Lake Michigan--My house is somewhere over there on the other side.

Tower envy.

Trippy glass floor

What you talkin' about Willis?
