A Night at the Track

Weds night we all went to the Greyhound track at Peterborough. We really had a great time with dinner in the clubhouse......which was delicious.....& then some friendly competition to see who could win (or lose) the most money!

Popster & Michelle were really studying the form for this race.


Greg has his own "secret" system

Zoe, Barry & Nigel....who by the way was the night's "biggest loser"!

Kayleigh, Kevin & Susan.....she made up for the "night's biggest loser"

Evie, Daniel & Ruth. Popster & I finally asked Daniel to pick for us & then we started winning!

Jason & James. Jason & I came up with picking the heaviest dogs because we thought the track was soft....it actually worked for a couple of races!


I almost captured the finish here! Adam, Michelle & I took Evie & Daniel down by the track so I was a little closer!

Yeah.....we won that time!

The winner getting his trophy.

These are the trackside bookies who usually give better odds!

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!"
