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!!!!!

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!"
