it's always something

Good afternoon.

It's a beautiful weekend here in Lansing. Currently 76 out.  :-)
We've just returned from a nice walk.  Our walk took us to Reno's where we had a couple of drinks and split a tasty sandwich. It's so nice to be outside again. And the long walk there and back surely negated the calories we consumed there. Right?
Anyway, our work week ended on a very busy note. Worked much later on Saturday than usual. But not unhappy to have customers. I cleaned the Salon this morning and on the way back home drove over something that punctured a tire. Made it back to the apartment to find a gash in the tire. Didn't see anything I drove over, but the tire was flat. Soooo, I took off the tire and drove over to Firestone to see if they could repair it. Of course, the damage was to close to the sidewall to repair. So, I'll wait until tomorrow and call the dealership to see if it may hopefully be under some new purchase warranty. If not, I'll need to get  a new tire.  :-(
And this episode just reinforces why Craig wants a spare tire. New cars don't come with them anymore, but we will buy one now.
Sooo, Our new car sits in the parking lot while we wait for the dealer to open tomorrow. Firestone did say they could get us a new tire in a day or so if the dealer doesn't help.
Now I'm going to fix a cocktail and go sit on the balcony and take in the beautiful weather..     :-)

  1. That is crazy. I did not know that new vehicles do not come with a spare.
    Glad you made it home safely and you are on your weekend now!
