People watching while pumping iron!

I am a people-watcher & in order to "lose myself" at the gym.....it makes the time go by quicker.....that's what I do.  Here are some of the "characters" I get to work out with at 5:30 am

First of all we have Barbie....she earned that name because her hair is absolutely perfect & she wears cutesy  workout gear.  She's about 15 lbs overweight & on the wrong side of 45 so the image doesn't quite make it.  She is always flirting with the young, very, very young kid at the desk who looks like a 17 year old Tom Cruise.  I have one thing to say to her:
"Give it up Barbie...you're old enough to be his Mama!"






Next we have Clem Clod-Hopper......he is always on a treadmill for the entire time I am there.  True to his name he walks like his feet weigh 75 lbs each!!  No matter how loud I tun up my ipod I can't drown him out!






Next up is Tatroid Man............. picture tattoos on steroids!  He apparently has not read the sign about lunkheads & grunts all through his workout.  Not a pretty sight!




Now for Miss Germapobic..........she kills me.  She doesn't spray a paper towel & wipe down the machine when she done, she takes the bottle & sprays the machine!  Don't go sit on a machine after her or you'll think you forgot your Depends!!

  1. Are you sure you're not at the zoo? Sounds like a fun place to people watch.

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!"
