Boston ferns & acorn ownership?

For some reason or another(it was eons ago so I have no idea) I bought Bostons Ferns for the front of the house.
I wasn't sure it would suit them as they prefer moist, humid conditions......
.......well guess what.....they are huge & about attack you!
Even I have to duck when walking under them!
 I think I mentioned in a previous post about this being a banner year for fact as I sit at my computer writing this they are "bombing" my roof.  I went outside last week to rake some of them up as the lawn mower doesn't particularly like them.  My "warm & fuzzy" neighbor came out with his blower & was working in his yard at the same time.  Not a word was spoken until Popster came home & the next thing we hear is this tirade that went something like "I'm so &*%^$* sick of &^%$#@ cleaning up these (*&%#%#$ acorns from your ^%$#*&^ trees.  When are you going to do the neighborly thing & get rid of them?"  My answer:  "The trees were here before you" 

One of the things that attracted us to this neighborhood was the fact it has such beautiful tree lined streets.  Our property has a lot of mature trees that I love.  We have cut quite few since we've lived here & I get very upset every time.  Sure it's a lot of work in the fall but I still think it's worth it.  We have trimmed the branches that were overhanging his house but I refuse to ruin perfectly good trees because a few acorns fall on his property.  Like I said the trees were there when he moved in! 

He needs to get a life or I need to put on my best Dr Dolittle & tell those lazy squirrels & chipmunks to quit teasing Molly & start picking up their share of the acorns


  1. Mieserable old G*t. One good thing, the only good thing about living here, is none of my neighbours speak to me, they can't I don't speak Spanish. Perhaps you should pretend to be even more foreign from now on!

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
