Touring Kent in the rain

It was a really gloomy, rainy morning & after Naomi & Curtis showed up Lucy made us all a big breakfast. Curtis had homework to do....he needed to write about what he thought a school would be like in the future & also made a model of it. We all had some input to give him ideas & set out for a ride around in the rain before going to buy supplies.

This is a private road leading to Royal St George's...where they hold the British Open every so many years. We ignored the "private" & just drove down it!

No one was playing in the miserable weather!

This is the pro shop

The club house with security cameras - they didn't see us!

This is the view from near the ferry in Ramsgate...on a nice day you can see France!

This is in Broadstairs - the home of Charles Dickens

This is Bleak House where he did all his writing looking out over the ocean. Must have been a day like this when they chose that name!

We took a trip to a pet store & then on to Tesco's to find supplies for Curtis's project. I was happily snapping away taking pictures in there when I felt someone tap me on the shoulder! It was a security guard asking me who I was working for! Apparently it was not allowed but I got away with a few! To see them go here.

We went back to the house & helped Curtis with his "futuristic" school

He was pretty proud of himself. To see more pics go here

It wasn't raining too bad so Popster, Naomi, Curtis & I walked, while Terry & Lucy drove, to the local fish & chip shop for a late lunch.

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.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me 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 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…


Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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!"
