This was definitely not one of my better moves!!!!

Popster was playing in a golf outing that was out of town & would be gone all day so I asked him to see if he could get a ride & leave his SUV home for me to use.  Great idea at the time but one that proved to be very challenging!

I was going to Mark & Dani's at 4:00 so we could go out to eat.  Around 3:00 I decided to take Molly over to Jenkins to run off some energy.  I had bought her a new toy....a boomerang.....& she, of course, was being her usual "I'm not sharing my new toy" self & wouldn't give it back for me to throw again.  I would have to go over to where she was & bribe her with treats to get it back.  We did two laps around the field & when I got back to the gate I no longer had any car keys in my hand!!!!!

"Why didn't I put them in my pocket" you might ask!


I always put the key ring over my pinkie.  "Did I" you might ask!


"Was I carrying my cell phone"  you might ask!

Don' was locked in the car!

Was I wearing sneakers??

 Of course not I had thrown on my garden clogs because I figured the grass would be wet!

Now picture the grass hasn't been cut for several weeks so except for the track around the perimeter where everyone walks it is extremely long.  I started walking in a zig zag pattern back around the way I had gone all the time trying to figure what to do.  There wasn't a soul around (of course)!  I was thinking I could walk up to Scott's house...about a mile & a half then another 1/4 mile down his driveway but what if no one was home.  I could walk back home only about 3 miles but in those stupid garden clogs!  I had another key at home but I still needed to find Popster's has every key he owns on it.  After about 45 mins I found them.

Lesson learned ....

  1. Put the d**n keys in your pocket
  2. Carry your cell phone


  1. Its a girl thing never worry about the car keys just throw them down thay always turn up.

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!"

Love Val
