Irene gave her best shot but........... wasn't all that bad.  Yes we did have lots of rain...around 4+ inches, & wind but not a strong as they predicted,  of course we lost power but then again when we live we lose power constantly!  Most of the time for no reason.  It went out about 8:00am & came back on around 4:30pm.  It just meant a very lazy day reading every section of the sunday paper & doing every crossword in it.  I even managed to complete the sudoku.......that never happens as the sunday one is the hardest!

 These were taken around ninish.
 See this branch went right through the shed roof...there is about 3 feet of it inside!
 This poor bedraggled bird was one of a few sheltering & getting some food around lunch time!
 This is a "redneck" chandelier!

 This is almost at the end of the worst part...taken around 4:00pm
 This is the Alplaus Kill which is up the street from us.
We took a ride to see how things were in the neighborhood.......lots of trees down but nothing really bad.  We spent about an hour after dinner cleaning up part of the yard but it is still really windy so I'm sure it will be a few days until we get it all done.

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…
