Tornado & American Idol Live

I had bought tickets for the american idol live tour way back in May & we were supposed to go a week ago yesterday.  Needless to say "Irene" had things to say about that so it was postponed until yesterday.  We had decided to leave out house a little before 6:00.  We were under a "severe thunderstorm" watch most of the afternoon & then around 5:30 it became a possible tornado watch.  We do not have tornadoes in this part of the country but before you know it they are telling us it was making tracks right across East Glenville....our little part of the world.  It got as black as night & the thunder & lightening were about as bad as I've ever seen. 

It gradually passed tornado...& we set out for Albany.  Not to get very far.....only halfway down our street & Popster's car died!!  He has been having problems but our mechanic hasn't been able to fix it.  We were able to get the car back home & jumped into I have to drive & of course we are following the storm & had to drive right through it.  We finally got into Albany & the traffic was totally backed up so it took us about 30 minutes to get onto the parking garage.  To add insult to injury they had doubled the parking fee($20.00) & the only spots left were on the roof in the rain.  We missed the first 20 minutes of the show!!

On a good note the show was fantastic & we had great seats!


  1. you should have sang, rain rain go away, the whole drive there.
    Driving in that sort of weather is awful, missing 20 minutes of the show, downright wrong.

  2. I would have sang but I was too busy "bitchin" about how lousy my defrosters are in that kinda weather!!!

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!"
