Cam's Chicago Conference

Honey and I had a great weekend. We flew to Chicago so to see our son Cam. 
Chicago is so amazing. It is a gorgeous city full of crazy activity. Honey and I lived on the wild side. We took the subway and cabs all over town. We ate at the most interesting restaurants. We ate at Moto, where nothing on your plates is what it seems. But that was okay with us, because we like cool food, being Top Chef junkies.
Cam was there for "The Society for Neuro-Science" meeting. 25,000 people from all over the world come to this meeting. Not just people, I mean scientists. Interesting scientists.
Cam is studying spiders. Something about sucking the DNA out of spiders. He is an interesting science type guy. He stayed with us at out hotel room for one night. Well.... actually he stayed downstairs in the Irish Pub and met more interesting scientists. He is trying to figure out where to apply for grad school. Irish Pubs are for networking.....clearly.

Cam is an intense guy. He can talk to anyone about anything. He never fails to make me laugh. We went to a restaurant where the cook does her own thing and sends out whatever food she feels like. They only ask if you have any allergies or strong dislikes. Cam very seriously said to the waitress, "I draw the line at viscera!", the waitress didn't miss a beat. She said, "our food is viscera-free."

It was so great to see him and spend a little time with him.
That's my boy!
