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 point I became completely unhinged & was leaking worse that my "struts"!

After being told how much this would cost.....big gulp......& that it would be a couple hours I walked over to the mall & did what any woman would do under the circumstances....started shopping & spending more money!

I wandered back after 2 hours to see my car still on the lift with no wheels on it!  When I asked over friendly guy how long he said the mechanic was having trouble with the wheel bearings.  "You hear all that banging?  That's him working on the bearings" 

Not what I wanted to hear!

I sat back down & waited & waited & waited.  Finally around 6:15....I had arrived there at 1:15.....the overly friendly guy's boss wants to talk to me.  It was about to get very ugly!  I was told whoever worked on my car before left out a couple important rings which they didn't have & couldn't get until the next day.

Long story short....won't get my car back until today!

Called Popster to come get me before I embarrassed  him by going berserk in Mavis Tire!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty


 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!



   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again




 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter





 This sums up the whole walk!
Love
