12 DAYS & COUNTING...............

It doesn't seem possible that after all that time of waiting that things could start to happen so quickly! Mark & Dani got their consulate approval Thurs & by Fri the travel agency had been in touch & our flights are booked. We will be leaving Newark at 3:00 pm on Thurs March 13th & will arrive in Hong Kong on Fri March 14th at 6:55 pm(12 hour time difference). The flight is 15.55 hours - yikes! I don't care I found out I can take my knitting needles so Sophia should be good for a couple more sweaters! We will spend Sat on a guided tour of Hong Kong & leave for Nanning on Sunday March 16th. "Gotcha" day on Monday????? Will be finding that out on this Monday........we hope. Say tuned for updates!

PS For those of you keeping track. My sink & faucet have been installed along with the new shower. The dishwasher was installed last weekend & the new stove came yesterday. The wallpaper has all been stripped off & the walls are sporting a sparkling new coat of paint. My part is all done...........the rest is the Popster job. Amazing how much one can accomplish when there's a deadline ahead!!!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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

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.

MISTAKE #1

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

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how 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 August......to 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…

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!"
