Wide open English countryside

 We pent a lot of time over the weekend with company dropping in so were constantly drinking tea(yuck or coffee)


 We did complete a 1,000 piece jigsaw between cuppas!
 Monday morning was beautiful so we took another walk down to the woods
 This part overlooks a lot of the land we used to farm
 Now a good part of this land has been bought by american mormons......they are farming it but it's more about investments in land.  It's amazing how much property they have bought!


 They are not going to do much with this until they put in some drainage


 While we were walking I kept seeing the red kite flying off in the distance but on our way back up the lane he was fairly close
 The elusive red kite
 I ran all the way to the back of the field & this was the best shot I managed to get
 See how far away I was !
 After lunch we took a walk up to visit my cousin in the village

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…
