All went well with our trip to Chicago and Milwaukee. We saw Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the Auditorium Theater. Go see it if you have the chance. It was very good, especially the ping pong ball scene. We also took a tour of the Robie House on the south side of Chicago. Robie House is a beautiful home designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, and is in the middle of being refurbished. Folks in the tour group were horrified though, when Mark said he would paint all the woodwork white if he owned the house. I don't think anybody is going to sell Mark a historical home soon anyway, so they needn't worry. Finally, what was perhaps the height of our trip to Wisconsin, second only to the wedding, and possibly our drunken outing with my sisters, was our stop at the Mars Cheese Castle. Nothing like a roadside tourist attraction to round out a hungover drive back to Chicago. I had a bratwurst on a bun with a Diet Coke, while Mark shopped for cheeses and useless crap. By the way Dennis, you'll find a delicious cheddar infused with red onions in your refrigerator. Real good on a hamburger.
