This is a view of the Des Plaines River taken in August 2015, when the water was low. Note the calm ripples and vegetation mid-river. Note the shallow banks. Imagine how this same spot would look with the river at flood stage and how much of the surrounding area would be covered.                    ↔MBP_cover-comp1

Sad to say that on October 28 this marvelous old haunted ballroom was destroyed by fire. How lucky I was to have visited before this happened. I wish I had taken more photos, especially with Svengoolie, who was also present, doing the Svengoolie Stomp with participants and rubber chickens!

    I just finished the book “The Mystery at Sag Bridge” I loved it. I plan to be at the Farmers Market in Lemont on July 7th.

    • Hi Joan – I’ve very pleased that you liked my book about Sag Bridge and that you let me know. One of the pleasures of writing is hearing about how what I’m writing touches the lives of those who read my stories. I bet your husband’s family has passed stories down to both of you. I look forward to meeting you at the Farmers Market.

    I just reread what I previously wrote. I spelled my last name wrong!! My husbands family worked on the I and M when they came here from Irland.
