Saturday Ritual followed by family visits

Got up on Sat morning to discover I hadn't pack either one of my hair brushes! The only thing I had was a little tiny pocket book size! Susan needed to go to Tesco's (the english version of a W*lmart super center) to pick up some last minute things for our family get together.
This one is brand new & eco-friendly!

The *trolley/greeter guy posed for me

They did not carry hair brushes........they may now though, as they had so many requests for them today! (all three of us ask three different clerks for them)

When we got back Susan's mother & father were there with lunch & the Sat newspaper which has the "super duper" weekly crossword. Nigel's son Barry & his girlfriend Zoe also came around(they live next door). Lunch is always sandwiches made with crispy hot french bread followed by jam donuts....to die for! The crossword gets passed around & everyone participates in solving it. Nigel & Susan have what we call the "reference library" at the top of the stairs & the rules are - anything can be looked up in a book, you can collaborate with each other but no "googling" answers before Mon AM. Usually Nigel will check with Susan's mother late Sun to see how she's doing but really wants to have his solved before then!

Later on in the afternoon Greg & Jennifer showed up, then their daughter Ruth with hubby Jason & their children James, Daniel & Evie. Greg's son Adam along with his girlfriend Michelle also came. Then a little while later Nigel's other son Kevin with his girlfriend Kayleigh joined the party.
This is Daniel - doesn't he have a "cheeky" face?

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!"
