Now you tell me!



I finally got around to ordering mulch for the yard Weds......yes I know, I'm way behind schedule....blame the weather. It was supposed be delivered between 10 & 10:30 this morning so first thing I got out the tarp & laid it in the driveway where I wanted it dumped.  Finally around 11:00 the doorbell rang & this young kid is standing there with a delivery receipt in his hand.  After we got by the initial "I need to see the check first" .  He asked where I wanted it,  Well duh on the tarp of course.  He took one look & said "you do realize it might all make it on there don't you?" I just said I'll be right out.

It took him 4 tries to back the truck in the driveway & then he kept stopping, getting out & checking, getting back in & backing up 2 feet & repeating the whole process.  He finally started to dump it & stopped as he realized he forgotten to pull back the tarp that was covering the load.  He looked at me very sheepishly & said " I've never done this before today.  You're my second delivery!"  

It took him about 20 mins to dump the entire load & it was spread halfway down the driveway!  He kept apologizing for making a mess but I actually found the whole thing very amusing, especially when I finally gave him a rake & told him it would be easier to pull the rest of the mulch out with that instead what he was was trying!

I do hope the rest of his day went better!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

About an hour later my overly friendly mechanic wants to show me something.....how 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 August......to 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…

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!"
