I’ve got a lot of catching up to do on here .. there are a couple of subjects that I have to finish up on here, but I’ll save that for another time. I did wind up working on Thanksgiving at the Sabre Room .. I was going to relax, but Rudy called and it’s a fun time. Mom came with for the show, which is a bit unusual. You see we were going to her friends house afterwards, and my brother wasn’t up to driving her. We strapped mom in with the equipment and off we went. The Sabre Room is an old Chicago land favorite, dinner and show all for one low price. It’s been around forever .. my parents use to go there when they were young. Anyway .. the show went fine and there were lots of kids to enjoy the magic.
Now .. I had a few days off, so I promised my mother that I would take her to see the King Tut exhibit at the Field Museum. Getting mom around isn’t as easy as it use to be .. she’s on oxygen and can’t walk long distances, so it can be challenging. My brother Jeff and Val came with for the adventure. After finding a parking space, and securing a wheelchair we were off to see the King. Turns out my mother went to school with him, she showed me his picture in the yearbook. The exhibit was pretty cool .. lots of crazy detailed items .. most made of wood, then covered in gold. It was neat to see up close .. only inches away. It seemed like it was all going to build up to the finale .. like the actual mummy itself. As we turned the final corner .. I was let down only to see the gift shop … with every bit of King Tut junk you could imagine. Not too much different than Disneyland .. but still a fun time.
