Three good things

I like things in threes. So tidy. Here’s three facts I like that have little or no relation to each other:

1. This month (Feb.’12) Russian scientists popped through 13,000 feet of ice and reached Lake Vostok in Antartica. This lake has been encased for, oh, about 25 million years.

2. Ulysses S. Grant, 18th U.S. president (1869-77) got a speeding ticket for running his horse and buggy wild on the streets of Washington, D.C. whilst he was chief executive.

3. The site on which our condo now stands once housed Chicago’s Merry Gardens ballroom and dancers came from all over the place to have a toe-tapping good time.

About Mrs. Fitz

Hello! I'm Michele Fitzpatrick, a Chicago writer. Like our town, a work in progress. As a journalist, teacher and writing coach I think all of us live our stories and sharing them creates moments that remind us we're connected. And that is enough.
