Yeah Miss Molly

We had Molly entered in our dog show this weekend on both Saturday & Sunday.  Sat we had put her in the afternoon session because I work in the morning but of course it was 90 degs out.  She does not do well in the heat. We were both competing at the same time as I was doing Rally & Popster doing the obedience.  I was able to move up so I could go first .  I have done nothing with Molly since I went back to work in April but Popster has been taking classes & working with her everyday.  Rally is easier in the fact that you can talk to your but you have to memorize the course because it's 10 points off if you do a station wrong.  You need to score 70 out of 100 to qualify.  I managed to get her a little "reved" up & we did okay until the last one which was a figure eight & you have to cross the center 3 times & I lost track & did one extra.......duh!  It was okay tho I got an 85 so managed to qualify.  It was finally Popster's turn & Molly was so lethargic by then, she wouldn't do any sits during the on leash heeling, & during the off leash heeling she stopped during the about turn & just stared into space.  DQ!  Poster was devastated but that's just the way Molly can be!

Today was a whole new day & being on first thing when it was cool made a big difference.  We left her in the car & I didn't get her until it was time to go in the ring.  She got in a panic cus she wanted to find Popster & he was staying out of her sight.   We flew around the course & I was amazed that I got her to do everything.  We not only qualified but got a 3rd place finish.


Now we had to get through obedience.  I don't think I breathed the whole time she was in the ring but she got the job done with the heeling on & off leash.  Everthing else she's pretty steady on. The only thing  left was the one  minute sit & 3 minute down.  Again I didn't breathe but she made it & got a1st place.  Phew!!!

I have more pics & I will post them later

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

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

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.

MISTAKE #1

I was told around 20 mins before my car would get in so I decided to wait.

MISTAKE #2!

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.







Needless to say at that poin…
