Another Day To Live Life To The Fullest...

There's good times.  There's bad times, but there is still time.
Don't let your mind stop you from having a good time...

Me under Cloud Gate aka The Bean.  Constructed between 2004 and 2006, the sculpture 
is nicknamed The Bean because of its shape. Made up of 168 stainless steel plates 
welded together, its highly polished exterior has no visible seams. It measures 33 by 
66 by 42 feet (10 by 20 by 13 m), and weighs 110 short tons (100 t; 98 long tons).

 The design was inspired by liquid mercury and the sculpture's surface reflects 
and distorts the city's skyline. Visitors are able to walk around and under Cloud Gate'
12-foot (3.7 m) high arch. On the underside is the "omphalos" (Greek for "navel"), a concave 
chamber that warps and multiplies reflection.  Designed by an Indian British born artist

I had some time on my own to really check it out while Arvid was watching soccer 
and before we met for dinner.  There is always hundreds of people there.  Probably 
one of the places I have seen the most selfies taken and where brides all come to 
get their pictures taken.  On this day there were 3 wedding parties and 
3  quinceañeras that I witnessed.  I love this city and yes will miss it.

The days are looking beautiful.  In the meantime Arvid and I will
continue to enjoy Chicago.  Soon our time here will come to an end.  Soon
we will be home where Brutus and Shadow await for us.

This has been so far a very delicious summer.  Still have some more
sampling to do.  Hello everyone.  Wishing you all a good day.

Don't waste your time, looking back on what you've lost.
Move on, for life is not meant to be traveled backwards...
