Home Sweet Home.......or not

Of course with our bodies in a different time zone we were wide awake early.....like 3:00AM but I said I was not going to get in the car until 7:00am! I wanted to at least have daylight to drive the rest of the way. I managed to hold Popster back until 6:45AM & we were on our way. It was a light rain & the roads were wet but clear. The closer we got to Albany there was more snow on the roads & eventually the rain turned to snow.

When we got to Rte 50 we were following a Time Warner cable van that turned into our street..........clue # 1!




At the intersection halfway down was a big pile of snow & the rest of the street wasn't plowed.......clue # 2!


My neighbor's car was in front of him stopped on the street in front of our house.....clue # 3!


See the red flags on this next picture...............that is our cable wire & telephone wire hanging about 4 feet off the street!


Next piece of bad news......the power was off & had been since 1:00AM. We had left in such a hurry without a complete set of house keys. We figured we would just use the keypad to open the garage door.......not without power! Oh yes we were locked out!!!!!! Who knew when the power would come back on........it happens around here all the time!
They fixed the wires & then Scott showed up so he plowed enough of the driveway for us to get in.
We decided to go to the kennel to pick up Miss Molly. She acted very lukewarm towards us & sat all the way at back of the car with her back to us. We stopped on the way home to borrow a phone book to get the number of a locksmith. Poor Molly had thrown up all over the back of the car. At least when we got home she was acting more like herself & went crazy running around her yard in the snow!


Poster had promised the guy a big tip if he came right away so we only waited 15 mins & he was there. He was able to pick the lock to the back door to the garage & $100.00 later we were inside! Our heat had been turned down really low so the house was about 50 degrees! Popster went out & started on the driveway & I put on an extra sweater & started unpacking! The power came on at 1:00PM so it was soon warm again.
We are supposed to get more snow tomorrow & Friday..........lets hope not!

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…

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…
