Color Me Rad

Today started off a little cloudy & cool but by the time I drove to Altamont the sun was coming out. I made really good time getting there & was early so did not have a problem parking.  Within about 10 mins it was bumper to bumper coming into the parking area & it took Lisa & Raegan a while to get in & parked.  It was close to 9:00am before the rest of our team made it in.
They provided us with sunglasses & a packet of color bomb, also a nice tee shirt but suggested everyone wear a white one so you could get "tie-dyed"  They were sending a "wave" of runners off every 10-15 mins & we managed to start off running until we got out of the fairgrounds.  Between jog/walking, stopping for pictures & other shenanigans  we probably did it in about 48mins.  We hung around the finish line for about an hour because there was supposed some kind of finale where everyone threw their color bombs in the air.  It wasn't happening as there were still people trying to get in that had to run yet.  I guess traffic was tied up for miles as it hadn't been planned out properly.  We decide to leave so at that point I got my camera out of the car to take some pictures.......I was afraid to use it during the race as you get bombed & sprayed with water on the way around the course.
Lisa & Raegan
We got someone going by to take this one.

I found my way back to my car to sit in the parking lot for over an hour before I finally started moving a foot at a time.  It was not fun & there were still people arriving at that point!
I had to wash my hair 3 times, I have a blue decolletage & my left armpit is multi-toned....I do hope it wears off soon!

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!"
