The long, long, long ride home

Sunday morning we hung around drinking coffee & then went to breakfast at the diner down the street.....great food.
We decided to take a leisurely, scenic ride home & stopped in Poughkeepsie to do the walk across the Hudson.

It wasn't a very nice day with a cold wind coming off the water




See all the sculling boats.....they must have been cold
That is the longest freight train I've ever seen

No it's not......this one is!
I want to buy this house
We headed over the bridge to 9W which was going to be our scenic ride home
That's where we were walking
This is our second trip across the river(fourth if you count the walk) however, we had been riding for quite a bit when I commented that the places we were going by were not familiar.  Then I spotted a road sign that said 9W south!  "Ahem shouldn't we be going north"  Yes the driver......who shall remain nameless but it wasn't me......had taken a wrong turn!
This by the way is the Rip Van Winkle bridge
Oh here we are going back across the river for the fifth time
Almost two hours later we're back in Poughkeepsie taking that same bridge!

Good thing I like bridges!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BIG BROTHER

Happy birthday to my big brother Terry...........have a wonderful day!

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…

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!"
