"It's a small world after all"

I mentioned before how I am totally hooked on watching Breaking Bad  which actually is  a whole other story.  Anyhow I was watching it Tues afternoon & during a dialog between two of the characters one of them said "Actually I was stationed in Upwood"

I was like you're kidding & hit rewind to make sure I heard it right!  For anyone who doesn't know....which include 99.9 percent of the population......Upwood is a ittle-bitty village in England that if you blink while driving thru it you would miss it.   However it is where I grew up.  RAF Upwood is just outside the village which is where they were referring to! 

Small world!

That evening while I was watching Downton Abbey Edith, while making her excuse for being late for dinner, said  "The train was held up in Peterborough " 

Peterborough is where my mother was born & grew up.  Also where I was born & where our grandfather livedso we spent a lot of time there.

Small world.



  1. its time for a visit...did you used to go to the Peterborough show? We did.
    I've never heard of Upwood, or Downwood but my cousin Stephen loves minutes from where they are filming Downtown Abbey. Highclere Castle.

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
