    Looking forward to pictures!
    F.P. has a long journey ahead of him now. I hope he arrives in England safe and sound.

    I've just found out that Felt Pugley should be arriving in England at the end of this week! I hope he has a pleasant flight "across the pond."

    Default Day 1

    The first stop on FP's adventure was actually my work! I figured he would like to check out what this servant to Phoebe does to keep her girl in the lap of luxury. I work at a company that designs office spaces and reps for companies such as Herman Miller. We use our office as our showroom. When we first waked in the door FP just couldn't take it anymore. It had been a long journey and he couldn't hold it.

    I told him as long as the boss didn't see he was safe!

    Next we headed into our "living room". He was really enjoying the comfy couch and orange executive chair.

    The next part of the office was his favorite (and mine too)! I spend a lot of time here on my lunch breaks. He wanted to recreate a picture he saw on the internet!

    Look familiar?!?!?



    That Eames chair is the most comfortable I have ever sat in. I had a hard time getting FP to get out of it but I told him there were many other places to see so he hopped down and we headed home to prepare for the next day!

    Default Day 2

    I had planned on taking FP to Chicago for the day but a wedding and the Blackhawks game squashed those plans. (I don't go anywhere near the city during major sporting events) SO, we headed to my hometown of Woodstock. It is a small town about 50 miles northwest of Chicago. As a teenager I was bored out of my mind but as an adult I appreciate the quaint scenery and charm.

    However, before we even started our trek we had to make a crucial stop!

    20140504_102316 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    Our first stop was the Todd School now known as Dean St. Elementary. Orson Wells attended school here for a several years where he met a teacher who inspired him and and nurtured his enthusiasm for theater.

    20140504_112201 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    FP wanted to go inside but I had to make sure he used the right entrance!
    20140504_112309 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    Our next stop was this bed and breakfast. I used to live right around the corner from it and always enjoyed walking by it on my way home from school. It was always where Bill Murray's character stayed in the movie Groundhog Day which was primarily filmed in Woodstock when I was in 7th grade.

    And across the street is this house. FP really liked the colors!

    20140504_111716 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    Woodstock is loaded with Victorian homes which really are quite a sight if taken care of. This one was always my favorite. It is called "The Wedding Cake" house. The builder built it for his daughter as a wedding gift. I love the colors. FP thought it looked good enough to eat!

    I love the house of many colors, FP certainly gets around. Went back and reread all the pics of your office--to die for, just beautiful settings.

    Default Day 2 Continued

    After a few more houses I decided to take FP to an unusual spot. We went to the cemetery. Yep. The artist who brought us Dick Tracy, Mr. Chester Gould, was a long time resident of Woodstock and he and his wife are buried there. FP had told me he loved crime fighting comic strips so I thought he would get a kick out of it.

    20140504_114036 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    Mr. Gould is not the only interesting person buried there. Back in 1958 Lana Turner's 14 year old daughter stabbed her mother's boyfriend to death in self defense. That man was Johnny Stampanato who grew up in Woodstock.

    20140504_121923 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    After a bit FP started to get a little scared so we headed to the "Square". It is the center of town.

    This is opera house. Many years ago it was starting to get run down and they began a restoration. Paul Newman donated all of the seating!

    FP wanted to go into this place for a snack. I have never eaten here but I hear it is delicious!
    20140504_125826 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    Apparently they have a festival now to honor Orson Wells. I also saw that they have a pub crawl in his honor too. Fun!

    20140504_125632 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    FP saw this and couldn't resist!
    20140504_124352 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    And this theater has also been in the movie Trains, Planes and Automobiles.

    20140504_124248_1 by Estrella_Luna, on Flickr

    We took in a few more sights and decided to call it a day. We were both exhausted!

    Default The last supper

    After a long day of seeing the sights and the scare of the graveyard I decided to treat FP to Chicagoland treat. Now it doesn't look like much in the picture but this italian beef was delicious! Hot peppers and cheese. FP loved it. He was also amazed by the amount of toppings on his Chicago dog!

    With a full belly and heavy eyes, FP snuggled in with Phoebe for the night to get ready for his flight across the pond! Goodbye FP. We miss you already but know you are going to have a blast over in England and on the many other stops that await you!!!
