Trying to go thru the drive thru without a car....guilty as charged!

One of the things I really wanted to do today was to go pick apples.  Before we knew it the day got away from us.......must have been all that fun I was having raking acorns!

Anyway we had about 45 mins before we needed to be at Mark & Dani's so we stopped at our favorite orchard.  Now picture it is 98 acres of trees & they have a single lane one way road that enters it from which you can pick a place to park depending what apples you want to pick.  However you have to get back on the same road that circles around the whole orchard & eventually leads to the exits which have drive-thru checkouts.

It was unbelievably crowded today & the cars were bumper to bumper barely crawling along & we figured we'd never get out of there.  So I said let me out & I can go pick some apples & catch back up to you before you get to the checkout.

Only in a dream world!!!

I picked one bag full but wanted some Jonagolds but of course, they were in the furthest corner but I hustled over there hoping I would see Popster on his way around so he could take my one bag.  No Luck!  So now I have two bags & I start hurry along the road to the exit passing all the cars that are still crawling along!  I come around the corner where the first checkouts begin & get stopped by the "apple" police.

I hear "Hey Lady, where's your car?"  in a southern drawl.  We live in upstate New York & that really threw me for a loop so I reply "Oops I guess I lost it!"

He proceeded to tell me I couldn't go through the checkout without a car & when I explained my husband was around somewhere with the car suggested I call him.  That would work fine for some people but of course my phone was in the car!  He then dialed Popster's number on his phone & handed to me.  Turned out Popster had already gone through the checkout(& also got the 3rd degree because he didn't have any apples) & the only way back in was all the way around again!

Even though it killed him to break the rules he grudgingly agreed to let me go through a checkout line on foot.  I said "Thank you so much but I don't have any's in the car with my cell phone!"

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
