Our Donut Wasn't Sweet
Miss Prissy. me, wanted to drive on some different roads today. We sneaked past John's sister's and two nephews houses and on out south through ranches and the oil field when it felt like we had a flat. We stopped, no flat, but something was wrong. A nice couple stopped but couldn't tell the problem so had us move up then he could see the tire was peeling badly. He told us to turn around and drive very very slowly back to John's home town because our spare which unbeknown to us was just a donut. After we could spot the water towers it still seemed like forever with our lights flashing and traffic zooming around us racing against time for the tire shop to close. I've been telling John there is something wrong with a tire on that truck but what does a woman know? A lot when you drive a vehicle every day sooo $1o4.28 later, a new tire and shaking nerves we made it home. Bet that will curtail our road trips for a while but not long I bet. You may say join AAA, well I do belong to them and have them in my phone but when you call them you would need to tell them where you are and all I could say we were on a gravel road in south Texas. That covers a lot of territory.
