What to do?????

After spending all of last night on the phone with US Air I had resigned myself to not being able to leave now until Sunday evening. Our one possibility we had left of still going today meant taking Amtrak but when we got up early this morning there weren't any seats left. Popster wanted to drive to Philadelphia but I wasn't crazy about that idea for a couple of reasons.....
  • Mark had borrowed Wanda, without which we always get lost.
  • What if we got there & they canceled that flight?
  • We would have to drive back from there in two weeks being very tired!
  • Where would we leave our car.
I went on the internet checking conditions at Philadelphia airport & found a valet parking service about 3-1/2 miles from the airport that was only $7.00 a day plus or minus a few cents. Meanwhile Popster had both phones going trying to get through to US Air & change us back to tonight's flight.
We threw the rest of our packing in our cases & headed out the door to drop Molly off at the kennel & get on our way. Driving there was pretty straight forward in spit of all the snow & our valet service dropped us at international departures at 4:00PM.
The US Air check-in was a zoo.....there were so many people trying to change to other flights because they had also been canceled. We were in line for about 1 3/4 hours but were so relieved when we found our flight was still leaving. We headed up to our gate & had dinner & then pretty hung out until 8:30PM. Then they made an announcement that they had to get us a plane from the hangars so we would be about 30 mins late boarding. That was fine with me as long we were leaving.
We took off about 45mins late & I settled in with my knitting, some movies & the biggest sigh of relief!!!!!

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!"

Love Val

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
