Today is the 17th anniversary of Mary and I leaving Chicago for Atlanta. Having watched the entire contents of our tiny apartment on the South Side get packed into a moving van, we kissed my in-laws goodbye, put the five cats (all of whom have since passed on) in the back seat of the old Cavalier, and made the 750 mile journey to our new home. The cats whined during the entire trip. We stopped in Metropolis, IL for dinner, and stopped again at a Waffle House outside of Chattanooga for a coffee and restroom break. Everyone in the restaurant was in costume.
