Thanks for the comments! I am really enjoying this blog and meeting people from all over the world in the process. I have travelled a bit and would like to more. To answer the question on the previous post, the boat just kept going, it was really busy on the water that day. If you haven't heard, we are having a heat wave in Chicago right now. (87 degrees F today!) Our annual Chicago Marathon was called short due to the heat -- someone died even, although he apparently had a heart condition.
Today's post is closer to home, country farm life in the NW suburbs of Chicago. I liked the farmer's hat -- almost looks Asian to me. Tractor crossings don't occur that often, but do during harvest and seeding time. Happy Fall!
