    Sue’s Front Porch Mama has two new additions.. Bill B’s porch and the late Mike F’s porch (the porch, not Mike)

      I remember walking by Mike’s house daily and seeing his mom. She was either stringing the garden house along the brick wall of their house in perfect loops or cleaning out the cracks in the sidewalk with a toothbrush. She was so nice and we often chatted about how she wanted me to date Mike and not Ellen since I was German and Ellen wasn’t. I would even visit her when Mike and his parents moved to Skokie. Like all German homes their was a breakfast nook and a lot of blonde wood. Sorry to see it go…my old porch on Oakley looks almost the same and of course on Melrose we had no front porch so we sat next door on the Well’s front porch.

        It was always interesting when Mike and I would have stuff strung all around his room…

        Great story, about Mike’s mother liking you! One of my girlfriends said to me, “you never get the girl you pick as your daughter in law.” I think that’s true.

        I saw Mike’s mom a couple of times, but only got to talk to her once when I was over. I remember it was a night Mike played “Here Comes the Sun.” Factoid: Did you know Mike F taught me several songs on the piano? One was the Beegees, Lonely Days, Lonely Nights. He liked the honky tonk sound of my Grandmother’s Baldwin from the turn of the century.

    How lucky am I?! I just got home from seeing Jurassic Pk 3D with my son and nephew, and although I’ve seen that movie about 20 times, I have to admit it was a little scary in IMAX 3D. I also notice something different every time I see it.

      It’s an amazing movie, isn’t it? My son loves it, too! I think he and some friends are planning on seeing it in 3D. Everything was dinosaurs, dinosaurs, dinosaurs when he was growing up. I had the nursery in Disney babies, but his Carter one-sies had green dinosaurs on them. For a while, I thought Joe would become a paleontologist! His obsession went on for years, and is still present in a milder form.
