Had to take a trip down to Joliet today. Found this cool looking sign, and some of the best tacos I have ever had.

The Blue Taco in Joliet. Well worth the trip.

Found another local ghost sign. This time while stopping to get some fantastic locally made carbonated beverages.

Filbert’s Old Time Root Beer and Quality Beverages.

We have a pumpkin. I have no idea when we will have time to carve it, but we have a pumpkin.

It’s not under the boardwalk, but it is under the viaduct.

Painting the bathroom, part two.

Let’s see if we can get the color right this time.

There are things I find I am getting too old to do. What made me think getting up on a step ladder inside a bath tub to paint was a good idea?

1980’s roller skating party.

We are rockin’ this look. And it all came out of our closet.

I learned of a new concept today. Well, it is an old concept, but new to me.

Ghost Signs.

Old painted signs, usually on the side of brick building, but faded and pealed and almost unnoticed in today’s modern world. But once I got the idea, it didn’t take me long to find one.

Look who’s back.

For those of you who don’t know, William J. Kelly had a minor brush with fame.  He’s the guy who got Chicago reporter Jay Levine to threaten him with the infamous line, “Let him finish or I’m gonna deck you!”

You can read more about the incident here:

As you can see from this page 13 article in today’s Sun-Times, Mr. Kelly is now running for Mayor of Chicago.  He actually announced his candidacy back on June 20th, but outside of a few blog posts, no news outlets in the City of Chicago reported on this.  I wonder why?  Could it be that in the past, Mr. Kelly and his self-proclaimed Kelly Truth Squad have been somewhat lacking in the whole Truth thing?

Here was my opinion back in 2010:

I wish Mr. Kelly luck, but it is my understanding that he still quite short of the 20,000 signatures he needs to get on the actual ballot.  I will be watching.  But I will probably be the only one.
