An Adirondack chair depicting the Blues Brothers was stolen over the weekend from outside a downtown Wauconda business. It is one of 15 painted chairs placed in the village two weeks ago as part of the Art on Main initiative to raise money for downtown beautification.
I guess we'll never know if it was all a setup. But glad they got it back.
It seems I've been out of the chair-buying business too long.
