Mohawk Hudson Half Marathon

WARNING:  Serious bragging ahead
Mark & Dani both ran in a half marathon today....their first one.  For those of you who don't know how far that is's 13 miles!  It started in the Colonie Town park (I have more pictures of the park for another post)
The Cat's Eye Pest mascot was there.
LiLi wanted no part of doing a "hi five"
However Miss Molly considered it for a few seconds!
Here they are starting along with about 800 other runners.

We managed to see Mark at about the 7 mile mark but had missed Dani as she ran faster than we had calculated.

Here's Dani about 75 yards from the finish line.
Now Mark at the same place
What a beautiful place for the finish.....the Corning Preserve in Albany.  Also an absolutely perfect fall 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.


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!"
