Tree monkeys

 About 2 years ago we had lightening strike one of the  big oaks in our back yard.  I had been hoping it had just gone into shock but it was slowing dying.  Being so big & close to the house we knew we needed to have it taken down but had to get in a tree service that would climb it as they can't get any big equipment into the back yard. 
 Felicity:  "Freda why are we sitting here on the patio?  Is there something entertaining going on today?"
Freda:  " I have no idea but I'm not sure I'm going to like it!"
 Felicity:  "Oh my look how high up he is!  I can't look!"
 Freda:  "Keep your knickers on Felicity!  I think they know what they're doing"

 Felicity:  " Timber!  Oh no it's going right for the shed.....oops it's not supposed to be sticking out of the roof like that is it?"
 Yup.  They managed to drop a branch on the shed roof but will be back tomorrow to fix it.  Also when they dropped the main part of the trunk they broke the perimeter wire to our invisible dog fence.  As long as Molly is wearing her collar she doesn't even think about going across the "line"   Good thing as it will be a while before that cut up so we can repair it.

BTW  The pics were all taken by Popster as I was at work when all this happened.  That's why there's no shot of the tree sticking out of the roof:)


  1. Oh good grief, probably a good thing you weren't there. what a pain in the well you know. Sorry you lost such a magnificent tree. ( and no offense to Popster, I'm sorry you werent there to docmement it's removal.

  2. that might have said, docUment at any other time of day

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
