A couple of weeks after getting my new tires, I noticed a slow leak in one of them. But, rather than take it in, I just kept putting air in the tire. Eventually, the weather got to be too bad to be outside and since I had full hazard insurance on the tires, I decided to just take it in and get it fixed.
When I got to the tire store, I learned that there would be up to a three hour wait. But I came prepared. Not only did I bring a book to read, I had a sub delivered to the tire store at lunch time. So, I read until my lunch arrived, ate lunch and got in a nice little nap all before my car was ready. Time management at its best.
Last fall, I decided that I needed new tires before winter. So I went to the local tire store and purchased a set of four. But it wasn’t until I paid for them that I learned of the three hour wait. Three hours!!! I wondered if some of the staff were on vacation. Fortunately, I brought along some reading material to pass the time.
This might be the year that I am spared hearing the dogs barking Jingle Bells. So far so good. Only a couple of more weeks to go.
A mobile home was stolen right off of its lot. What will they steal next?
I just noticed that a local movie theater now has a bar in their lobby. Now you can take you date out for a movie and a few drinks without ever having to leave the theater.
A local jewelry store is offering a free Xbox with select diamond purchases. What ever.
On a recent trip through the car wash, I discovered that they now have pink soap that is winter green scented. Sorry but it reminds me too much of when I was sick as a child.
The first self driving bus crashed about 2 hours after being in service for the first time. Well, I guess it had to happen sooner or later.
For every one who loves veggies and dip you can now buy Hidden Valley Ranch dressing in a 5 liter keg. Whatever.
Canada is concerned that 20% of the current population consists of immigrants and that maybe they should limit those numbers before it reached 30%. So, if you are a “Yank” who is planning to move to Canada, you had better hurry before the borders close.
