Friday didn't start of very well. The temp was about 100f when I left Little Rock headed to Hooks, Tx. . About 2 hours into my run I blow a tire on my back "pup" trailer down at Hope, Ar. .
Thankfully I had my cell phone or it would have cost me a lot more than the 1 1/2 hours that I lost.
Looney Tire Service does our tires but when we are that far away from Little Rock then Looney calls someone closer to us to handle the job.
GCR Tire Company in Texarkana was called and a nice guy named "Charlie" drove the 30+ miles with a new (recap) trailer tire. Not only did he smash his finger, he smashed it with the part of the carcass that had steel showing. Smashed finger and stuck with the steel cable. It hurts just thinking about it. He was a trooper and finished the job and I was on my way. All things consider, an hour and a half wasn't too bad.
It was dark on my way home and even though I have a "birds eyeview" into passing cars, there is not much to see unless their interior light is on.
A mini-van passed and since it was dark inside the DVD player really was bright.
There playing on the screen was Sylvester and Tweety Bird. If you see something like that then you have to smile. It made my hard day seem a lost less stressful. I don't understand the "crap" they call cartoons today. I guess I am just too "old school".
Looney Tire Service and Looney Tunes Cartoon all in the same day. Weird don't you think?
For those that might be interested, I updated my Sam's Fiero blog. It's a reverse blog so any updates are always on the bottom.
