Dead body, Shape-up sneakers & gas prices

When we were at Peeble's Island on Sat there were a lot of activity in the parking lot including a couple cop cars.  Come to find out about 45 mins before we got there a couple hiking the trail saw a body in the water.  This is the second this has happened to us while hiking with Bob & Noreen.  We were on the bike path in Ballston Lake last year just before someone's dog found a body.  Creepy!!!

I ordered a pair of shape-up sneakers & they came yesterday.  I have been very intrigued by them but wasn't about to pay well over $100.00 to see how they were.  The prices on them have come down so I ordered them.  I put them on & started walking around the house.  It felt like I was handicapped feels like you are walking on the balls of your feet & I thought I was going to fall on my face!  I was brave enough to wear them while walking Molly this morning & have had them on all morning.  I have to say once I got used to walking the correct way my legs feel terrific!  Not over $100.00 terrific!!!!

I had to get gas for my car today & it was almost $42.00 to fill up my little gas tank!!!!  I really don't put on a lot of miles in the winter so only put gas in my car maybe once a month.  Consequently I am seeing big jumps in the prices!!!


  1. Gas in the uk £1 36 lt and you think yours is expensive.

  2. Since you don't drive often you ought to check your boot occasionally since you have a knack of being in the close proximity of corpses. EEEWWWW.

    Yes gas prices are nuts at the mo.

  3. I thought for sure this time I was going to hear your name on the news as the person who saw the body!

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…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
