I have done pretty well with my "sales" on Cr*ig's list but didn't get too many bites on the sink or faucet.  I took it off for a couple days then re-posted for the amount I wanted for both but reworded the ad to read granite sink with free faucet  Jim's idea).  I got a call from someone yesterday who wanted to come right over & look at it.  He showed up & my "6th sense" kicked into action telling me Snake with a capital S!!!!!  He turned out to be one of those "slumlords" that owned a bunch of apartment buildings.  The sink was still attached to the counter so he started mumbling about how he could break it taking it apart etc, etc & then had the nerve to offer me $40.00!!
My answer was absolutely not.........& after some haggling back & forth we agreed upon $75.00.  At that point Jim walked out of the house & said he could cut it out of the counter for him if he wanted.  I'm shooting the hairy eyeball at Jim mouthing "No way!!!"  Meanwhile Mr Slumlord pulls a huge wad of money from his pocket & counts out $70,00 & then says he only had 4 ones would I settle for that!!  I immediately said give me another $20 I'll go get you change!!

I almost came back out with 4 ones but decided not to stoop to his level!!!!!

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!"
