We were up at the crack of dawn(actually before dawn) last Sat & were on the road by 5:30am last Saturday for our long trip to Canton to see Jessica graduate.
It was a little more than 3 1/2 hours most of which was through the Adirondack park....beautiful drive through the mountains. Would have been prettier but not many leaves on the trees as spring is so late this year. We actually saw some snow & ice. we complained about how long the ride was but JoAnne & Josh came from New York & their trip was 6 1/2 hours!
Canton is up near the Canadian border but it was 85 degs & about as humid as it gets!
This was the long line of cars heading into the campus so it took forever to park & was a long walk to the gym where it was being held
Lovely seats but it was not air conditioned & it was so stifling hot.
Check out her cap.....that was the only way I could keep track of where she was.
These are all the vet tech grads.
There was around a thousand graduates & of course she was close to the end.
They actually pronounced her name right.....wonders!
I will post some more pics later.....I haven't had enough time to edit them all.
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 something.....how 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 August......to wear unevenly. As if that wasn't enough for my brain to digest one of the front wheels had a bad wheel bearing.
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!"
