One librarian at Wilmette asked to pet him in the lobby because she couldn’t resist a Collie. Lassie’s good will carries the day for Marlowe.
On the other hand, some businesses are very nice about bringing the dog in: Harold’s True Value in Evanston and Millen’s Ace in Wilmette are my two faves. The men and women on the crew at Millen’s fusses over him and one guy always gives him treats. It keeps me from feeling guilty for leaving him outside, plus, I’m hoping he learns about plumbing, drywall, and paint.]]>
Your blog has been both inspiring and a fun read. I am living in BG and working in Evanston and the cost and time to commute has really been a drag. After reading your blog for a couple of days I decided to explore my public transit options and am happy to say I go door-to-door on the bus now! I am saving a boat load of money, doing something good for the environment, and not stressing about traffic - great stuff!
Hope all is well in your world and let’s hook up for lunch soon (since I am working in your neck of the woods)…
Take good care,
