Brooklyn’s Sears Tower

    Back when I lived in Brooklyn, in the first of two houses, I used to take several buses to get to this Sears.

    Bought the bicycle I still have from this store, and rode it the roughly three miles home.

    Hard to believe it, but this was in 1997. Good grief. How is that possible? :-D

    Begs the age-old questions about the passage of time: Where does it go? How did I become so bleeping old?!

    I had not thought about this in a very long time, not even when I’m using the bicycle which is currently out on the front porch.

    (I use it as a bike trainer now, with one of those stands to make it stationary.)

    Wow. That was a weird little trip down memory lane.

    Guess I’d better buckle up because having spent almost 31 years in NYC, there are sure to be lots more for me on this walk. :-D

    Sadly, Chicago doesn’t have a Sears Tower anymore. It’s been renamed Willis Tower. But to many of us, it will always be Sears Tower, no matter what Willis says.
