Champlain Canal

These are from two weekends ago.....I know I'm slow!

We were looking for a place to walk while we were at the dog trial & found this hiking trail
It follows the Champlain canal

We eventually came out in the grounds of the Phillip Schuyler house.

When we had driven there on Saturday we kept passing signs that said Zoo with an arrow so on the way home we decided to try & find it.  We drove forever on back roads & through farmland & very few houses.  We were ready to give up when we came upon the "zoo"........ using the term lightly!  There were a few bedraggled ostriches and some........
cows & goats!  That was the "zoo"!
This is Saratoga lake......still half frozen!


  1. THe photos are amazing. I love the last one and the black and white.

    How close are you to Albany?

    1. Albany,NY or Albany,GA? Just kidding! Not far.....about 15 miles.

  2. My friends that have the big huge sissy dog alfie, the golden doodle, are driving their motor home up to Albany for a month shortly and since I have mentioned a whole lot, wondered if you would like a dog playdate. Not sure of all the dates yet but Shara got so excited at the idea of meeting possibly Molly.

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
