Some Chicago Boyz know each other from student days at the University of Chicago. Others are Chicago boys in spirit. The blog name is also intended as a good-humored gesture of admiration for distinguished Chicago School economists and fellow travelers.

‘Be an opener of doors for such as come after thee, and do not try to make the universe a blind alley.’

If the chairs were white, this would be a serious work of art.
We work with the waiting rooms we have.

-the door+frame should have been planned and installed ~6″to the left from it’s current location (on the pull side there must be 1′-6″ clearance at the right of lockset)
-instead of a knob there must be a lever-type handle, min 4″wide
I think this series sucks! Boooorrriinnnggg!

My cousin is an oral surgeon, and his office is big fin de siecle Victorian house. The living room, complete with a fireplace, serves as the waiting room. He took the practice over from his father, who originally started it in the 60s, so I think it is a unique setup nowadays.
When we were kids we used to help mow the lawn, rake leaves, landscape, paint. Any and all odd jobs. In fact, I may call him up to clean the gutters just for old time’s sake.
