August Birthday Celebrations

 We began with a double celebration for Mark & Scott's birthdays as they are 10 days apart

 Dani found these t-shirts on the web & thought them perfect for Scott & Deidre for their present living situation!
 LiLi had made a birthday card for Uncle Scott
 This kid always designs something appropriate
 She was little "Suzie Homemaker" that day serving drinks & food.  Here she is fixing the birthday cake
 She had color coded the candles that they each had to blow out

 A week later we headed up into the hills to do the birthday thing again.  Seeing Scott's was that "special" number Deidre decided to have a last minute party for him with her family
 In the background is the ground clearing for the new house

 There were dogs everywhere.....8 in total

 The chickens have grown & were enjoying some outside time

 Again we had birthday cake

 Mark & Scott both got the same present from us......a replica of an London rail station clock

Love Val💜

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…

Work, cat bites. hospital.....

After a long winter I went back to work on Thurday & as usual it was crazy with the phone ringing off the wall!  The weather wasn't that great but golfers in the northeast are like caged animals who are finally free!  We had good weather predicted for the weekend & I was scheduled to work both days.  After a very long day Saturday I finally got done around 8 pm & was meeting Popster & Jess in Ballston Spa at a surprise birthday party for Jeff & Colby.  Jess met me in the parking lot & said she was leaving as she had also worked all day.  She showed me her arm where she had been bitten by a cat earlier at work.  She had gone to urgent care & they gave her antibiotics & she went back to work.
Before I left for work Sunday at 5:30am I woke her up to look at it & didn't like the way it was swelling up.  I told if it didn't look better when I got home at lunch we were going back to urgent care.

This is what it was looking like when we got th…
