It is going to be a beautiful, sunny week in Milwaukee. I have to remind myself that these quintessential summer days are fleeting In Wisconsin and take some time for a long walk on the beach and dinner on the patio.

I was completely riveted by the story of the Thai soccer team, weren't you?

This is a long intro to share with you this creepy elevator story.

This is me. Is this you too?
