Walking & Bike path along the Charles River

These pics are from last weekend when we went to visit JoAnne......she lives in Waltham which is about 10 miles from Boston. The Charles river is approx a 5 minute walk from her apartment.

After we crossed over the bridge the path continued on the other side past these buildings.
Guess who is walking on the wrong side of the blue line!
This factory was built in the 1800's & consists of over 400,000 sq feet in 22 buildings.
The first ones were kinda dilapidated but as we went along there were new windows & had obviously been up-dated.  Parts of it have been done into offices & there will eventually even be loft style apartments. What a great place to live with that view!

We saw this little guy on a fishing pier!
This is what he was watching & probably wishing he could swim!

I was trying to get pictures of the gulls flying around.


  1. Great great pictures! That view is definitely sweet! When you say 5 miles from Chicago, do you mean the heart of Chicago?
    Keep the great pics coming!

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!"
