Monday, Monday… Can’t beat that Day!!! (or was that money… money?)
Took Caryl to “work” … and on the way … thinking nothing of it, but… we hit a “small” pothole in the road. Returning home, found out my right-front tire is losing air.
No Problem! I’m an AMA member; I’ll give them a call… the Automated Road Assistance “computer” would dispatch someone to remove, then install my spare. Still a great Monday!
Checking the real-hard-outside attached-to-the-house mailbox, I smiled as I opened the card from my sister-in-law, Esme. “Congrats on Your Retirement.” My phone is ringing, confirming my address, and within minutes, the AMA driver arrives, pops the tire off, and puts on the “freaky little doughnut spare” from the trunk, [boot]. Later the same day, I drop the [tyre/tire] off at “Minute Lube” to be repaired.
It has been a brutal winter. The roads, the vehicles, passengers and drivers have ALL taken a toll… This time last year, “we” were seeing Spring flowers everywhere, hearing Canadian Geese as they returned “home”, and cursed our beloved road crews as our roads were cleared of sand & gravel, and asphalt was patched…
Caryl made her own way home from work, and assured me she would do-the-same-tomorrow! Yes, tomorrow… Tuesday… it follows Monday!
