Off across the pond

 I am finally getting over jet lag & have downloaded all the pics from my camera so I can post about our trip back home.
 We flew out of Newark & the day we left was freezing cold with snow everywhere.  It was a weds & all the storms had been coming up the coast mid-week so I was sure we wouldn't get away without some kind of delay.
 We were lucky & the weather was clear so we had no problems & our flight left on time.  It was an overnight flight which was not fun, very cramped so no sleep, lots of turbulence & may have involved a battle with my boots & the bathroom door.  Good thing Popster is used to me & not too easily embarrassed!  We arrived safely, early, early Thurs morning & were met by my youngest (baby) brother Nigel & my nephew Barry.  My older brother Terry & my nephew Paul had also driven up from Canterberry just to say hi so we had coffee with them before driving back to Upwood

 Nigel & Susan live in the house I grew up in
This is Nelson....... part of the welcoming committee.....he helped make us feel a little better about leaving Molly
 This is Riley aka "that short guy".  He belongs to Barry & Zoe & they live right next door
 He was being very serious & wasn't having any part of me trying to make him smile!

 Finally he decided maybe I was okay!


  1. the short guy is so lovely. My dad is once again living in the house he grew up in....odd English way of doing things!

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!"
