Popster & I have been fighting, arguing, having a discussion about a couple trees in the back yard since last year.  He feels they overhang the house too much & thinks they are going to fall on it during a storm.  My thinking is they have been like that for the 17 years we have lived here leave them alone!!!

These are the two in question.  I finally said okay have someone come in & look at them but added the following condition
  1. No heavy equipment is allowed any place in the yard
  2. Not one part of my perennial can be disturbed ( the trees are growing in it) 

I figured there would be no way he would find someone who would agree to that & give him a reasonable quote



  1. Oh dear, you lost that one but you did win the one about a beautiful new kitchen.
    Trees really aren't pretty when they are in your house. I know this went through hurricane Andrew.

  2. What was the verdict? I have three old, very tall cedar trees in a cluster in my backyard. They are the only trees. Their roots are starting to protrude above ground. I am afraid they will someday uproot and fall over. I am on a hill, and the trees are on the downhill side, which means if they fall, they'll take out my neighbor's fence for sure, and maybe part of their house. UGH.

  3. The trees are coming down....sniff, sniff!

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!"
