Bridget is such a brave woman. Her life is always an adventure- from living in Scotland, Hawaii, to Moscow Idaho:), traveling South Africa, New Zealand, South America, there isn't a place she hasn't been. She has taken on Chicago now in all it's glory and works as a substitute teacher by day and brilliant actress by night. It was great to spend the weekend with her in her historic house. She is a model for health and good manners: in other words we drank lots of tea.
Sunday we went to the Chicago Folk Music festival where we learned Greek and Jewish dances, then danced the two-step together for two hours while a band played Creole music. It was exhausting. and fun. It was also funny to be two women dancing together for a loooong time. Bridget is an excellent leader, and kept me from crashing into people, I wish I could say the same for me.
On the street where she lives.
It was fun to see my paintings hanging in Bridget's house. The doorknobs in Bridget's house were all like this. Chicago is full of these relics, I couldn't believe it, so cool. Thanks Bridget for a lovely weekend!
