2012 Stockade-athon

Today was the annual Stockade-athon a 15K race that is held every November.  Today it had a special meaning as both Mark & Dani signed up to run in it.  We weren't able to be there at the beginning of the race as our furnace decided to "crap" out last night so had to wait for a repair man(no it's not fixed won't get the part until tomorrow.....having heat is over-rated anyway)
We got to see Dani as they entered the park the first time.
They then go back out & in the other entrance then around the pond again
I ran over to get her again as she came up to the finish line
Poster stayed on the other side looking for Mark
Even Molly watched the race.

Mark has only started running in the last few months & looks so good now he has lost a huge amount of weight.

I was able to get a shot of Mark crossing the finish line.

I have to finish by saying how proud we are of both of them doing this. 

Way to go Mark & Dani!

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!"
