We Born-Longs are both Chicago born and reared. Even though we've now lived
half our lives in Texas, the Windy City is still our home town, and a grand
one it is. We had visited there way back in 1997. We had a great time then, and it
was time to go again. So in May 2009, we made a road trip to Chicago to act
like tourists and see all the sights. I still have two cousins in the
city, so a visit with them was definitely on the agenda as well. Our first
stop, though, was in Columbia, Missouri, to see some old friends.
