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!

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!"
