Where I stayed
I've been to Chicago more than 50 times in my life and I know how to get to greater Milwaukee still, I listen to the GPS and go round in circles a couple three times to the point where I'm talking to myself, out loud and then to the GPS itself.
I finally work out where I'm going (following the "Milwaukee" sign might have been a good start) and about two hours later I am in Manitowoc, WI. Not much goes on in this town it's, about 40 minutes from Green Bay and is famous for The Manitowoc Company, purveyors of fine household appliances. A place where last century yours truly hocked some stock plan administration software
I got to the Comfort Inn and negotiated a low rate with Tiffany. I asked for the AAA Rate and then the government employee rate. She asked me to prove I was a government employee and the jig was up. We settled somewhere between AAA and GOVT.
Tiffany had a tattoo on her under forearm. I recognized it from somewhere but, couldn't place it. I soon learned that it was a logo for the Insane Clown Posse a Detroit white rap outfit that goes for the same kind of theater that KISS did only more murderous and rapping. I was shocked by her commitment to a band that 10 years from now will maintain the staying power of 311. Come original everyone.
I noticed the Green Bay Packer Backers unpacking their cars as I was checking in. A big game Sunday, a big game with the Cowboys.
Off to sleep I went with slight reservations about some chest tightening and a mildly sore throat.
