Visit to Sparrow Hall Farm

On Monday morning we got up early & took a walk around the Nature Trail & back through the village. Jenifer came to pick us up as we were going to spend the day at their house.

This is the top their road & if you look way off in the wild blue yonder to the left where the trees are you will be able to visualize how far off the beaten track they are!

After we had a cup of for me.....we headed out to the potato barn where Greg & Adam were getting some pallets of potatoes ready for some orders that were being picked up later that day.

This is the machine that sews the bags closed

I had Popster stand near the huge pile of potatoes so you could visualize just how big it is....that's showing about one third of the pile...I couldn't get back far enough to show the width of it!

Adam moving a pallet around.

This is the way they are bagged. All of these potatoes were orders for the fish & chip shops.........yes that is a huge business in England.

This is in the greenhouse where all the seed potatoes are stored ready for planting in the spring.

Just a couple of pieces of farm equipment

These are swans feasting on one of the fields........they are owned by the Queen so are totally protected. Notice the wind farms way off in the distance......there are a lot of them around.

Daniel & Evie.

This is Jenifer"s she calls it (looks like a big ditch to me!). See the big stack of straw bales...they have been sold to a power plant than burns only straw to make electricity.

Greg showing Popster how this tractor works

James getting ready to ride his quad bike

At this point Evie was getting cold so her & I went into the house while Greg & Daniel took Popster on a tour of the rest of the farm.

Greg had someone convert a John Deere riding lawn mower into this "tractor" for Daniel. He is only 7 years old but is already a very serious farmer!

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!"
