Would the real Albert "Stagger" please stand up

If you remember back to day 9 of the kitchen remodel Jim discovered the leak & had to cut the ceiling open again, also that same day was when we found the water that was melting on the roof above our front door was going behind the siding & pushing it out.  It had even broken a piece of siding up near where the phone & cable lines come into the house.  Popster called our insurance company & they said we could file a claim, which we did.  The insurance adjuster called a couple days later & made an appointment to come over today.  He came in & Jim explained what they had done about the leak in the kitchen but because the cabinets are already in he couldn't, of course, see any damage.  Jim said you could see down in the basement crawl space where the water ran to & suggested he go look at that for his proof.

All the man had to do was walk down 7 stairs to the mancave & go into the basement from there.  Simple right?


 His shoes were all wet from the snow so he slipped on the third stair & fell the rest of the way, knocking Jim over in the process.  Popster picked everyone up & dusted them off saying "I know a good insurance company!"

Davey & I were at the top of the stairs & he's gesturing to me to get my camera!  At that I started to laugh
(don't I always at the wrong time) & the two of us had to run into the kitchen as we were about splitting a gut!!! 

Popster was all worried that he hurt himself & I was worried he'd hurt Jim!  Anyway he came back upstairs & then checked the outside & said he would be sending us a check, to cover the damages, in about two weeks as long as we were happy with the amount they were willing to pay.  Popster said "Sure as long as you don't plan on suing us!"

At that point Davey & I had to leave the room!!!


  1. OMG I would have laughed so hard. I know it isnt funny but I can't stop laughing when things like that happen either

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
