The Aftermath!

We spent most of the day doing yard clean up....well not me so much as I had to leave for work at 10:30am....but Jessie came over to help out so her & Popster did most of it.  It was an absolute nightmare getting to Schenectady.  We have to cross the river which was going to crest sometime in the afternoon way, way above any previous level of flooding, so the two bridges I could normally use were closed.  It took me 40 mins to go about 3+ miles to a different bridge.  Most of the traffic turned out to be people wanting to check out the river!!!   Duh!!!

I managed to get home okay with just a couple detours but it was so dark I didn't get to see much of the flooding.  It is so bad in all the low areas around us as all the creeks overflowed & that's what caused the river to flood.  We are very lucky having just a few hours clean up as there are so many people that have lost everything.



I spent the afternoon on the golf course with the last group of my Junior Golf  League...more on that later.....& these are some of the pics I took.  Isn't it amazing that it can be so beautiful the day after such bad weather!

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!"
