Perks of Living in the Country

Pretty gruesome stuff for some, and definitely dangerous, but I thought this was super cool.

Flat Tyre

We were on our way to lunch with Lin when the car started wobbling left and right.  At first it was so subtle, it was only in my subconscious.   A few seconds later, I started to really feel the waviness of the ride.  That's when I noticed the hubs starting to look for a place to stop the car.

Thank goodness there was a large open compound in front of the Hamby Water Supply office where we could stop and survey the damage.

We had had a tiny little air compressor that would plug into one of the cigarette lighter deals, but it was doing NOTHING.  

The hubs got the tools out of the back of the car, jacked it up, and we looked for the cause.  It turned out to be a pretty good screw that had hitched a ride on our tyre. 

Meanwhile, the little boy asked if he could get out and run around,

while the hubs crossed the road to the Church across the street to see if they would happen to have a better air compressor.

Several people stopped to offer their assistance, and one couple ( with their two boys ) went to the nearby Walmart, got a Fix A Flat thingy and the pokey hole repair kit, and came back to us.  They were such a blessing.

Meanwhile, Jaxon got to play with their two boys while the men got to work trying to patch the tyre up.

We were very fortunate to have had so many concerned people stop by to offer their help.  When we thanked them and offered to pay them for all the things they had bought, the couple said that it wasn't necessary, and that they would be glad if we passed on the good turn.

Such sweet people.

Wind and Dust

Whenever it blows like this, the hubs likes to remind us that all that brown that we see in the sky, all that dust? It's from West Texas, all the way from Seminole :)

Life Finds a Way

No, not quite like what Ian Malcolm meant ...

but rather, I was cutting into a Spaghetti Squash the other night, and hey, look what I found :)

I've transplanted it into a little cup now, just for the fun of it.

Might as well help it along, aye?

Favorite T Shirt Woes

My favorite t shirts always seem to develop little holes in the front around the belly area.

I often wondered WHYYYYYYYYY, when it struck me that it must be because I wear them so much and they rub against the seat belt and the studs on my jeans, and get well, worn down.

I have since come to find out that it is an apparently well known, if not dreaded phenomenon.
