Walking in the Nature Preserve

We decide to take another walk around the Nature Preserve

This is called Upwood Meadows ... the fields have cattle in them in the summer so there are "stiles" between each field

Zoe (Barry's girlfriend) joined us this morning....as we were walking along this stretch someone was walking towards that looked familiar. It was my cousin Norman & he was very surprised to meet me in the woods!!




This is entering Lady's Wood where I played alot when I was a kid....it is so beautiful in the summer as there are so many wild flowers....it becomes "carpeted" with bluebells!





If you want a 6 mile hike you go in this direction which takes you to Great Ravely.



This is the pond we used to fish in....we would tie string around jam jars & scoop up tadpoles!

Looking back at Nigel & Susan's house........which is also the house we all grew up in.

This tree has a story.......when we were kids my brothers (all 3 of them) dared me to climb it. Hey, I was a tomboy I could do anything......problem was they all ran home & when I looked down there was a herd of cows staring up at me! I spent most of the afternoon in that tree & I still haven't forgiven them! I know how to carry a grudge!

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…

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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!"
