Visit to Chicago
Pam Doyle, Revelstoke, BC, Canada
In August, my travelling companion GIVONNA DEBRUIN of Vernon, BC, Canada, and I travelled to Chicago, Illinois, USA for a week's visit. Givonna, an experienced ITHF member, had written to TAMIYE & JIM MEEHAN, to ask if they could host us for three nights. We were thrilled to see Tamiye's quick and positive response with suggestions on what to do with our free time and an offer to pick us up at the airport. At the airport, a Jeep pulled up with our names posted in the window! At Meehans' lovely home in a heritage area of Chicago, we were greeted by two curious Norwegian Elkhounds: Trinka and Cody. With their help we settled into our rooms located on the third floor and then were treated to dinner at a Middle Eastern restaurant.
