Peebles Island

 We had a trip planned to go to Peebles that we had to put off a week not realizing that the next Sunday Popster had a golf tournament.  It was a beautiful day so Jess, Tyler & I went anyway.  Mistake # 2 came when we got into the village of Waterford we noticed they were holding a 5K race. We drove down the street towards the bridge & parking area & found it was closed for the race.  We found a parking spot on the street & walked down.  Mistake # 3.....the race was just starting & they were running across the bridge & around part of the island
 Mistake # 4 we decided to walk across the road part of the bridge to stay out of their way
 That was a great idea until we got to the part that was a steel grid that the dogs couldn't walk on....h*ll we could hardly walk on it!  Jess said "no biggie I'll just carry Molly"....all 55lbs of her!  Crazy girl!!




 It was a perfect day for pics as the sky kept changing
 See the big fat fish?



 Our customary photo shoot on the picnic table

 We've had no rain this year so the ducks are practically walking on the rocks

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…
