Sunday afternoon's short long hike

We met Bob & Noreen at noon at the entrance to the preserve....I had found my book with the map so we were going to try & follow the red trail that goes around the outside ridge.

These two pictures gives you an idea of how steep some of the paths are.
Strange looking tree.

One of the three open area it crosses over.

What we didn't realize is the red trail branches off a couple of times & we ended up on the southern rim which, of course, is the more difficult way back.  We climbed up hill for what seemed like hours!  We finally reached this tree only to find out it was the way out to the other parking area.
We continued on & were elated when we saw a sign that said 1.3 miles to go, only to walk for 15 mins & find the next sign said 1.5 miles!!!!

We did get a glimpse of the waterfall & then knew we were almost back.  We finally got back to our cars at a little past 4:00pm so it was quite a hike!

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.


I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.


About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me 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 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 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!"
