Mifflin Street Party
I have just returned from a visit to Chicago, Milwaukee, and Madison. I saw my doctors and was told that I was doing well post my heart surgery. I then went over to Madison to visit my younger son Spencer. While there he discovered that I had unfortunately arrived on the weekend of the annual Mifflin Street Party. How can a dad deny his 23 year old son a day of partying with 10,000 or so of his closest friends? I left Madison early and headed to Chicago to visit my other son Trevor. On the way I dropped Spencer off at Mifflin Street. 5,000 beautiful young women... I feel so old.
