"Batten down the hatches"

We have spent about an hour "preparing" for whatever  Irene decides to throw our way. All the hanging plants are inside the garage, the lawn chairs are put away, we bungee-corded ....I just made that word up.....the gas grill to the deck railing & brought in our flag.

I can't help but think it's a lot of drama on the weatherman's part as we are quite a ways inland but they just love to overdo everything!

I absolutely refused to go to the market & stock up on bread , milk & water like the rest of the people around here.

I was silly enough to go to Lowes to look at ceiling fans & couldn't believe all the crazy people buying generators & batteries!

I think we'll have some rain & wind tomorrow but not as much as they say!

See you on the flip side!

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
