One Thousand.......

.....can you believe this is my one thousandth post. I can't even say that without getting tongue-tied!

 Who would have thought when I started this blog back in October, 2007 that almost 5 years later I would still be doing it.  It started out as a way of keeping in touch with my family back in England & has help create a whole "other family" in bloggyland.  (Uh uh as usual spellchecker doesn't like that word!) 

I have made friends I have never met but, feel like I really know as well as the friends I see all the time.

It gives me a place for displaying the photos I take & hopefully to make me  a better photographer over time.  I find I carry my camera with me all the time so I do take more never know when the opportunity will arise to capture some blog fodder

I thank each & everyone of you that take the time to read my blog & maybe I'll set my goal on staying around for the next thousand posts


  1. congratulations.

    You talk ALOT. It took me 6 years to say what you said in 5!

    I love your blog and am so glad you stopped lurking 2 years ago to tell me you used to go to Woburn safari Park, otherwise I never would have found you.

  2. Thank you Dawn.....I can always count on you making a funny make my 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.


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!"
