We are taking our son & DIL to O'Hare about noonish tomorrow, and even tho it's late notice, I thought I'd see quick if anybody wanted to have coffee, late lunch, supper, whatever, & meet and visit a bit.

Let me know if you are interested!

I figure'd I'd offer anybody that has time, a deal on my books & DH's books since there wouldn't be any postage! Hey, let me know I'll look at your shelf too!

Whether you are up for coffee, lunch, supper, or just a minute to meet and swap books, send me a PM!

We come from middle Northern Indiana on the 80/94 to the Chicago area, so if you are east of Chicago, that could work too!

That would have been so cool if I still lived in that area. I grew up in Lake County I hope you get to meet some other swappers up there though. good luck

Christy, I live in Lindenhurst in Lake County.  Are you familiar with that area?  Sherry, I wish I could if I didn't have to work all day and then babysit for my sister-in-law.  I hope you find some takers though!  It would have been fun!

Well, Christy, if you need me to say hello to anybody, just holler! hahaha

Caryn, I'm so sorry you won't be able to come out & play! I sure hope someone can! Wish I'd gotten this on here earlier in the day even, I might have gotten a taker or two. Maybe yet by morning or by the time we get up there & check mail (I go NOWHERE without my computer :)  I was going to look at your map of books to see where you are, but you don't have it showing. I'll have to go to Google to see where you are.

Carolyn, think I can convince my son to come back hom via Pittsburg? Would that be close enough? hahahhaha  Yeah, I"m sure he would appreciate me making him spend an extra 8-9 hours getting home after getting off the plane in PA instead of IL. I"m sure he'd have no sense of humor about that at all! But, someday we will get together!
