Monday I bought two "new" tires. Blew my budget out of the water, but the steel was showing through the sidewalls on my old ones...!
Yesterday, the front driver's side tire picked up a nail. Yep. One of the new ones. Flat. And I don't have a spare.
Luckily, I was at Sam's Club where there's a tire shop... they couldn't patch it for me as it turns out, a) because, the young man told me, the nail was too close to the sidewall to be repaired, and b) because apparently one of the lug studs is missing... they have rules that they are not to work on-- or even sell a tire to the owner of-- a car with wheel 'defects'... but he did at least fill it for me, and I drove on it to the place I'd bought it... and it was promptly repaired free of charge. They showed it to me... the nail was an inch and a half from the sidewall, nowhere near the edge! I wonder if the kid at Sam's thought I wouldn't look! LOL
I love Sam's Club for a number of reasons, but I've never bought tires there. I don't think I would now either... LOL
Talk about exhausting... I've got laryngitis, and though my throat isn't as sore as it was, my bronchial tubes ache when I cough.
I blame it all on Easter.
I have a severe allergy to lilies... Brian and I went shopping for catfood last week, and just inside the store door were about fifty potted fully blooming Easter lilies. AAGH!
Brian said it was enough to give HIM a headache--can you imagine what that was like for me?
If I'd thought about it ahead of time, I'd have sent him and stayed home! LOL
I'll get over it... My doctor's nurse called me to remind me about the sensor implant tomorrow... and she could tell my voice was off so when I told her I had laryngitis, she said..."well, you don't have to talk for this!... see you there!"
So far it hasn't raised my blood glucose levels much, but if it gets much worse it will... and I'm wondering if it will skew the test results. Hm. I'll ask when I get there.
Meanwhile, I'm going to go to bed and practice my snoring with my afternoon nap! LOL
I'm thinking my indoor furbabies are going to join me... purr purr...
Licorice and Isis as babies... how about that 1970's crushed velvet, eh? LOL
