What do you mean I'm not that tall?

Popster came home from work yesterday sick(those little germ-mongers) & like normal when he's sick, "took to his deathbed".  That was okay I had lots to do, mainly mowing the lawn & getting rid of millions of leaves.  It has been rainy all week so it was real "mucky" job & I had to wear my wellies to keep my feet dry..

I finally got done at lunch time & Molly had been so patient just sitting around watching me.  She always goes somewhere with Popster every day to run around & I could tell she really needed to run off some excess energy.  I put  her in the car & took her to Jenkins & attempted to throw a frisbee for her.  It was a pretty lame effort but she got to run around in spite of me.

On the way home I decided to stop & get pumpkins & corn stalks which was my plan before Popster got sick.  I picked out some pumpkins & paid for them & the corn stalks but didn't realize how big & heavy the bundle was.  I got it over to the car & then attempt to wrestle it onto the roof.

 In my little fantasy world I am at least 5 feet 6 inches tall & ,as Grandma used to say, "strong like bull"!  For a while the corn stalks were winning but I got them up there & used some bungee cords to fasten them to the roof rack.  After I was done I realized I had them the wrong way round.....I do know enough about aerodynamics to know the stalks should have been facing  in the direction I was driving........either that or I would have to go in reverse all the way home!  I was like "what the heck" I.m only going a mile down the road!  All this time Molly is sitting in the back seat with her ears back because of the '"monster" whose tendrils are trying to get in the window!

I very carefully pulled out on rte 50 without gunning it.

Guess what?

I didn't get 100 feet when  I heard pop & there go the corn stalks!

Now I have to pull over & attempt to get them turned around & bungycorded  back in place again.

At this point I would like to thank all those "kind"(NOT) people that drove by me on rte 50 without stopping to give me a hand.  Of course the fact that I was in my wellies & grubby clothes & cursing like a crazy lady couldn't have anything to do with it.

I  did manage to do a better job the second time & then drove home at about 20mph angering just a few others on my way.

  1. OMG, why can't people stop and help. It wasn't the wellies they are just RUDE.
    That photo of Molly not getting out of the car just made me laugh out loud.

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
