Saturday Night Dinner Adventures

There is just something about us & dinner on Sat night always being some type of adventure, but this past one takes the "prize"! I had a yen for a turkey burger so we decided to go to Ruby Tuesdays. Of course we go pick up Mark & Dani & after they (I'm always the DD) polished off 2 bottles of wine we go over to the restaurant. It was extremely crowded so sat at the bar - another bottle of wine - & eventually were seated at a table in the bar. Probably about 5-10 mins after our meal was served the fire alarm went off! Now picture average age of the employees was about 23 so they all giggled nervously, shrugged their shoulders & went about their business. The second time it went off I was getting very nervous & one lady asked, very sarcastically, "are you going wait until the place burns down before you tell us to leave?" Again just nervous giggles. Then we hear sirens & in walks 4 fireman in complete rescue gear. They did some checking & said the building had to be evacuated. Now not to mention any names but certain people in our party are known for inhaling their food so it didn't matter to them if they had to leave, where I had barely taken 2 bites of mine. We ended up in the parking lot but my sweet daughter-in-law wrapped up half my burger so I did get some of it. The town of CP has a volunteer Fire Dept & they had every piece of equipment in the parking lot in no time flat. The hook & ladder had 2 men in the bucket checking out the roof but we couldn't see why. After standing around in the cold we decided enough was enough & left them to it! I am not making any suggestions for next week!

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!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
