Then "Storm Doris" blew in!

We got up Thurs morning to rain & really strong gusty winds.  They were recorded at 60 - 70 mph.  Trucks & buses were being blown off the roads so we did not go out at all.  In fact we were forbidden to go out by Susan!  We showed her.....we stayed in!
The fence in the front yard blew over
Nigel went to pick it up

Popster braved the storm to help

He thought he could fly....but that didn't happen either
All the fence around this garden blew down
Only thing left standing was the gate!
We kept saying it was our mother telling us to behave......her middle name was Doris & they used to call her "Voodoo Vera"!
We worked on another 1,000 piece puzzle
These are some random pics from Tues

I love swans & there are always so many of them around

Pretty pigeons as well

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!"
