"What was that creature?"

I had plans for a lazy-read the paper-pj wearing kinda morning in the sun room.......not meant to be here in the "land of who knows what will happen next"! Bob & Noreen wanted to walk early so they were going to be here at 8:30....Bob was our architect for the sun room so he wanted to see it. My brother was going to skype between 7:00 & 7:30am but I was okay with all of that...I could skype in my pj's!

I was just getting out of the shower when Popster came upstairs to say we had a small issue. Looking at his face I knew it wasn't small! He was outside with Molly when this animal came out from under the sun room viciously hissing at them.. He scooped Molly up & ran into the garage. He was trying to describe it to me & I'm like "come on"! He went back down into the sun room & started yelling "come see it's in the yard!"!
Here I am half naked, grabbing my camera, looking for my zoom lens while this thing is running around.
We called our local police department trying to get animal control & they told us we would have to call a trapper.  Popster was trying to explain that there something wrong with this creature as it tried to attack him & is , by now, back under the sun room.
They sent out a car & while Popster is trying to describe it to the cop Bob & Noreen pulled up.  I went running out to tell them to stay in their car when the creature came running down the driveway!  Popster dove onto the back of the cop car & I into the back of Bob's car.  Of course being the great "blogger" that I am I still have my camera in hand.  It started acting really strange so we realized there was something wrong with it.
At this point we are laughing at what the neighbors must be thinking with Popster in the back of a cop car.  Bob's comment: "You can't make this kinda sh*t up"!
Now our local "Starsky" decides he will try running it over & "peals" down our driveway just missing Popster's vehicle

"Excuse me but isn't the perp supposed to raise his hands?
After a what seemed like a very long time Starsky emerged from his vehicle in full "sniper" gear
"Yup I do believe I got him!"
After spending some time on Google I think I've identified it as a Mink.
There's never a dull moment around here!  Come visit....we will keep you entertained!


  1. Oh my. Your Sunday mornings are way more exciting than mine. Please tell me that somewhere between, grabbing the camera and being half naked to jumping on the back of Bob's car, you put some clothes on!
    I'm just thinking how chilly your bottom would be resting on that chilly metal.

    This one had me laughing out loud.

  2. Opps you were in the car! I was laughing so hard I read it wrong. still laughing my head off.

  3. That was one of the funniest parts of the "drama" running around getting dressed between taking pics. I got lots of exercise running up & down stairs! I don't think I ever did brush my hair!

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!"

Love Val
