Pumpkins, corn stalks & flagstone?

 This is a two-fer!
 We finally made a stop at the farm up the road to get some things for fall decor.
 We were on our way back from the dog park so Molly had to share the back seat.
 She is so stoic....just sits there trying to acts so nonchalant!


This was in the farmer's yard.....that's where I was born(& I don't mean in the boat!)
 Now for part two.....when they dug up our yard for the money pit last year they did a terrible job of putting back the flagstone path.  It has been bugging me ever since but we couldn't find anyone to redo it.
 Well fast forward to last month when I found someone who plays golf that does this kind of work as a side job.  Look at how much better it looks.  They even cut the pieces so they fit better plus found some new ones that blend in.  They also dug a trench & put in some drainage pipe by the shed so hopefully that will stop the flood we get when the snow melts.
 Look at the big gaps in it!
 This looks so much better.
They even took the leftover pieces & did this

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!"

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…
