Walking home & ghosts of a past life

 On our way home from St Ives Nigel was going to visit his MIL so he dropped Popster & I off in Bury so we could get some exercise by walking home
 He left us by the corner store & said "You know the short cut from here.  Right?"  Of course those words put Popster in a tailspin because, of course, he didn't believe I would remember!
 English gardens are so pretty even in winter.
 "This way Popster"  He followed me protesting all the way!
Look where we are !  On the right road!

 This used to be RAF Upwood & this was the base commander's there's pigs in the front yard???

 This is typical of what you see on the roads around here

 Snowdrops everywhere
 I am standing in the front of the house where I was born
 You still have to take your shoes off at the door!
 This is the back yard...behind that shed is the pond where I almost drowned when I was 4-5 years old.  My brother(yes Terry you)dared me to walk across a log, I fell off & almost drowned.  I was most upset because I lost a wellie!
 This house was so only the ghosts live there!
 This is the local pub......we used to torment the owner.  He considered us hoodlums!

 We once put firecrackers in this man's dustbins.....maybe we were hoodlums!

Oh the memories.

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

Snowy day in the park

I have an abundance of snow pics.  Between last Thurs & Monday we had 20 inches of snow!  We are so done with this white stuff!
 But I do have to admit it is pretty

 Makes for great pictures
 And you'll see from the next few pics how much Molly loves it!

   We take a two second pause.....
 ......& off again

 I do hope the hornets went to Florida for the winter

 This sums up the whole walk!
