Pilated Woodpeckers - mating ritual???

I took these pics about 3 weeks ago & forgot about them.  I was working in the front spreading topsoil when I kept hearing a "scrabbling" noise & looked up in the trees several times but couldn't see anything.
I was on the other side of Popster's car so I finally walked around it & saw these two woodpeckers.
I flew into the house for my's always in the kitchen or sun room.
I was able to get lots of shots as they continued a strange kind of dance around & around the tree.

Then they finally flew across the street to my neighbor's yard.
The whole ritual started over again.

I probably watched them for at least ten or more minutes

I think here they are doing synchronized dancing

It was just totally amazing!

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!"
