Language barrier

We had errands to do today & I needed to get some things so I could finish wrapping presents that I was shipping to my family in England. I needed Kraft brown paper............simple WRONG!!!!

First of all there is no one over the age of 18 working in any store on Sunday! First store I went into I couldn't find it & after asking the teeny bopper led me to the aisle with paper towels! Back to the car.

Next store - couldn't find it nor the help! Back to the car.

Next store - couldn't find it so asked teenager w/earphone attached, who looked at me like I had two heads!!! He asked me to repeat what I said so he could ask someone on his "magic" earphone! I repeated in my best "american" accent "Kraft brown wrapping paper - it comes on a roll" He speaks into earphone "Do we have Croid paper rolls?"

All I could think of was "you say tomayto. I say tomahto"!!!!

I repeated "KRAFT like the cheese" dude! He mumbled something else. I repeated again "KRAFT like macaroni & cheese"!! He mumbled. I said "forget it" Back to the car.

Of course, by now, Popster was getting very impatient & made me repeat saying "Kraft" before he wouldl drop me at the next store!

Finally sucess - they had it & I didn't even had to ask!!

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!
