Arriving in England

We had a very smooth flight & while Popster cat napped I watched a couple movies & did lots of knitting. We made very good time & landed about 30 mins late. The terminal was deserted & there were no lines at immigration......in fact we got through so fast we had to wait for our luggage to show up on the carousel!
What a nice surprise to see everyone waiting my brother Greg, Terry & Lucy with Keira(their granddaughter) my niece Naomi & my baby brother Nigel who I hadn't expected to see!
We all went to the parking garage & decided to meet somewhere to have coffee before we all went our separate ways. Easier said than done! We were in 3 separate cars & it took two tries just to get out of Heathrow. All Popster kept saying was "I'm glad I'm not driving!"
After a couple false stops & starts we ended up at a MacDonalds of all places!

This is Nigel & Greg.

Terry & Naomi

Keira - isn't she beautiful?

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!"
