Earthquake, hurricane, tornado, tropical storms........

It has been quite crazy around the great northeast recently when it comes to weather.  Yes we did have a tornado touch down a few mile from here on Sunday.  Since then we have had nothing but clouds & rain, some of it torrential.  After heavy rain Weds, yesterday morning they had to evacuate all the areas that were hit hard last week because of potential flooding again.  I was at work as when the weather cleared in the morning we were super busy.

I work until 1:00 on Thurs & decided to go play a few holes with my buddy Dominic before I went home.  Around 2:30 I got a message from Popster telling me all the bridges across the river were closed again!  At that point I decided I'd better head home before rush hour as I needed to go quite a few miles out of my way to get home.

Bad choice!!!

Everyone had the same idea & I got stuck in bumper to bumper traffic all the way to the Northway.  That is always a heavily traveled road but yesterday it was a 6 lane parking lot.  After an hour I finally got on the northway but never got out of 1st gear until I crossed the river!  That's when I made another bad choice.  I got off the first exit after I crossed & headed home back towards the river figuring that if the Rexford bridge was closed there wouldn't be any traffic.

Wrong!!

They had opened it again so now I was stuck in bumper to bumper traffic again.  It took me 45mins to go the last 5 miles!

I should have just stayed there, finished my round & I would have gotten home in 25 mins instead of 2 hours!!

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!"
