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!

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…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
