OK, Hamster has been located and taken back into custody and after a night out of the habitrail I am sure he must be happy to see that exercise wheel and a fresh bottle of water! lol The hand held vacuum has captured the 'trail' that was left 'behind' (pun intended of course) and all is well in Utopia.......
Speaking of Utopia.........
I want to share the life and travels with a kinda new blogger to me........she is living the life I want to be living in say another 10 years or so......empty nester and vagabond!!! I am so jealous of this woman's life right now I could just spit......but Momma always said it was impolite for a lady to spit! "Lady" now there is a term I have a hard time relating too! lol I blame it all on my Irish heritage....Now my Mother is and has always been a lady, me on the other hand doesn't take any offense to the term 'Broad' lol lol lol I can be very lady like when the occasion calls for me to be, but I can hang with the best of them in almost any circle or any situation......ok, back to Utopia!
Right now Utopia for me is in the Burbs of Chicago.....nothing but subdivision after subdivision, grant it it rivals the neighborhood of "Desperate Housewives" but there is nothing of Mother Natures' true beauties to see with the naked eye. I have access to some grand old farms within a car ride, but no mountains, no vistas, no oceans............no NOTHING! (insert sniffle, then a whine here)
I have the Great Lakes when I need my beach addiction, I have a beautiful Chicago skyline brought to you by "Man Made" but other than that it's just plain ole............FLAT out here. Southern Illinois is much more green and 'hilly' for lack of a better word, but the only time I go south is on the way to the In-Laws and that doesn't generate a 'warm fuzzy feeling' except when I get alone time with the SIL'S down in Kentucky.......LOVE those girlzzzzz!
I was blessed for the few years that I did get to move around and take in as much scenery as one could....Born in Boston, 2 years spent in England, time lived in Texas, Florida and New York (upstate) Catskill Mountains..........(insert sigh) and then back to Chicago. (home of my Father's Family) Where I met, fell head over heels with and married a Chicago boy who will never live anywhere else but here or Wisconsin! But with true love one does have to make sacrifices don't they??? lol lol lol In the meantime I will live vicariously through the windshield of the motor home of Adlessor!
So without further adieu please stop by her blog for some really great scenery and remember to add her to your alerts if you want to see why America the beautiful, is a song that the author knew what they were singing about!
