Traveling Light

All Midwestern roads

Lead to Chicago

Or so, it seemed

Thirty-five mile detours

Numerous hamlets

Population: 2,700, 3,000, 3,700

Where ordinary people lived

Art fairs, dog-friendly

Entertainment venues

Picnics in city parks

Some didn’t have the luxury

Of leisure on Memorial Day
