The "Missing Rake"

The mystery of the "missing rake" was finally solved today - can you imagine - it managed to find it's way to a garage located on Brown St. almost 12 miles away from where it was last seen! I'm thinking that maybe Harry Potter is real & probably mistook it for a broomstick! Anyway last week I was forced into organizing my garden tools as the Popster was working on his "garage project" when I discovered my new rake that I had only had a chance to use once was missing. Thinking I could have left it leaning against one of the many trees on our property I spent the good part of 45 mins searching. Of course when I asked a certain person if he had seen it he denied all knowledge of the said piece of property. Now anyone who knows me knows I was just a little peeved & had a "hissy" fit about the nerve of someone "stealing" a rake so of course that certain person (aka "crusty") will never admit his part in the theft! Now I have it back I can rake to my hearts content! Ugh!!!!!

My car is pigeon-toed!!!!!!

I get out of work on Thurs at 1:00 & usually play golf with my buddy Dominic.  Yesterday was kinda rainy, blustery so we decided not to play.  I headed up to the mall but got side-tracked on the way.  One of the things on my extremely long to-do list was "get two more tires for my car".  I pulled into Mavis Tire & checked to see how long it would take.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me did I know it wasn't going to be pretty!  My rear "struts".....whatever they may be.... were leaking causing the rear end to lift up when I braked causing my car to "pigeon toe" which in turn was making my  new tires .....that were put on the front wheels in wear unevenly.  As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.

Needless to say at that poin…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

Round Lake Village

Every time we go to Round Lake we wander down streets we've never seen before
A little people house
This garden was gorgeous
Look if you buy this house you definitely need to get along with your neighbors!
This house is even smaller & comes with a golf cart
This house really fascinated me
That stonework is incredible
They need to make it a little more welcoming

They are still working on my house

I would love to see the inside.......I hope they plan on selling it & then I can go to an open house
"Mama I have flyaway ears again today!"
