Chicago Blues Festival...

Music gives soul to the Universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination,
 and Life to everything else.  It's 106 miles to Chicago. We got a full tank of gas, half 
a pack of cigarettes, it's dark and we're wearing sunglasses!....................HIT IT!!!”

We have had some very long days since getting to Chicago with lots and lots to do,
 but hopefully this weekend all we will do is listen to some good music, relax and enjoy 
some good food.  You see it's our yearly Chicago Blues Festival Weekend.

Here we are at our first Blues Festival in Chicago.  Once we experienced the city
we knew we had to come back every year for the summer.  The city is just amazing.
As you can see in the above picture, even Brutus was all into the Blues.

This is Sniff Sniff's first time for everything.  So far he is doing pretty good.  Yesterday
he met with a second pet sitter.  She is also a cat lover.  Lives in our building and Sniff Sniff
was immediately all over her.  Good sign for us.  It's not easy leaving kitty for so long.

Soon we will go to Norway.  Looking forward to seeing everyone, but of course NOT happy
about leaving Sniff for so long.  With Brutus I agonized every time we went to Norway.
 He always had issues with the paw.  No one knew how to give him his medicines like I did.

When we left Brutus I counted the hours until we got back home.  It was always stressful
 for me because I worried always about his paw.  Even when the paw was OK I worried about
 my Brutus.  I would like to not have to worry this year as much.  Sniff is healthy,
 and that in itself is a big relief, but knowing me I will worry no matter what.

For the next 3 days we will be enjoying good music, we are just happy to be here 
and we are looking forward very much to the weekend and The Blues Festival.

To all a very good weekend.  For those who like us are enjoying a musical weekend,
let's get this party going.  It's soon time to rock and roll.  Sniff says hihi to all.
He's doing better and starting to jump into all the cupboards again.  Yes,
he now can open them.  We will be child-cat proofing them.

Happy Friday to all.

Music in the soul can be heard by the universe.  Behind every favorite 
song there is an untold story.  Where words fail, music speaks...
