Drive to Kent

We got up very early this morning as Greg was picking us up by 9:00 to drive us to Terry & Lucy's house. They live in a little village called Minster(click on route map) which is near Ramsgate in Kent......it's approx 150 miles & about a 3 hour trip. Nigel was coming with us but Susan had to work. It was very icy on the side roads when we started out but the motorway was fine. A beautiful day with blue skies & fluffy white clouds





The Dartford bride which crosses the Thames estuary.......there is also a tunnel when coming from the other direction.



Entering Kent



Our welcoming committee!


We arrived there just before 1:00 & Paul, his wife Zoe, Curtis & Keira were also there. Terry & Lucy moved here five years ago so this was the first time I had seen their house. Lucy had a nice lunch all ready for us & we spent the afternoon visiting before Greg & Nigel headed back home.
It was around 4:30 so we had a little time before it got dark to take a walk around the village. Unfortunately I hadn't checked my camera battery...it needed to be charged...so I didn't get any pictures. It is a beautiful little village with a friendly atmosphere & pretty buildings.
We took a ride out to get something for dinner but ended up eating at the local pub...again excellent food....it was so pretty inside & had brass decor every place you looked. Someone must have to spend hours cleaning all that!

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…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
