Memories of how we met

 Friday morning was beautiful after storm Doris blew out
 We decided we would go to Cambridge & visit the universities
The plan was to go by way of Huntingdon so we could get fish & chips for lunch
 This is the way I would ride my moped (aka Tina) to work everyday.  I had to take these pics as it fascinated Popster how they force drivers to reduce their speed in the small villages
 These barriers are in the middle of the lanes in each direction so you have to go around them
 Nigel did a fine job of parallel parking, using only his mirrors, in this impossible spot....Popster was very impressed!

 Nigel & I have traditional fish & chip while Popster & Susan have sausage & chips....it was sooooo good!
 These pics are all taken as we drove by so they are not the best!  This is where we met so many years ago sitting at a table in that front window.  Back then it was called the Nickel Coin & I worked as a telephone operator in a building behind here.  During our coffee break & lunch we would race down that alley & meet up with the GI's from the base(RAF Alconbury).  Popster & I actually met the first day he was in England but he thought I was a "snotty english girl" & I thought he was a "nerd"!  Needless to say we met again a couple months later & changed our minds!
 That's the telephone exchange in the background.
 We spent a lot of lunch hours here challenging the locals to dart matches
Just around this corner is a park bench where Popster gave me my ring & made it official
 And now on to Cambridge

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…
