Sorry for the late posting. Not a great travel day and the BlackBerry wasn’t working. Just showed up at Wrigley. The ivy is muddy brown. But, it’s still a wonderful place to see. A lot of history.
Chicago is a great town. Of course, the cabbies leave something to be desired. Mine gave me a hard time because I wanted to use an Amex. He kept saying if I wanted to pull over and go to an ATM machine.
Finally, he asked me, “do you know why we don’t like to take credit cards?’’
I said, “Sure, you don’t want to pay the fee and you want the cash so you can fudge on your taxes. … It’s the cost of doing business … and don’t try to pull that surcharge to use a card.’’
Gotta run. Clubhouse is opening.
