Next time I'm in Chicago, I'm going to have to make a list of places to visit.

This would be a good place to add.

Hi Chuck:

___The next time you are in Chicago, I will go with you ;)

___The one thing I missed is having a snack from one of the famous Chicago Street Hot Dog Vendor’s. They were no where to be found?

___Good Luck

We may take my In-laws to Gilcrease this weekend. http://www.gilcrease.org/

They have alot of Remington and Russell.

Or we might do the Philbrook. http://www.philbrook.org/

We had our company christmas party at Gilcrease one year. It was great. Had the whole place to our selfs. Drink in hand and strole thru the wonderful art. Was alot of fun!

Tulsa being the little redneck oil city it is. Is very lucky to have art like this.

Enjoying the arts is good for the soul. :)

Thanks for the pictures, Wayne. Unfortunately, I think the first two are blurry. :D
