You see that older model Explorer behind the found windows? Today in spite of itself I am thankful for it. I have managed to have two flats (Same tire) and a starter go on it. I am tempted to be angry at said car...BUT...she has 250K miles on her. She drags us through snow and rain and all sorts of silliness..and generally has been a good car for us.
I have pulled my back, learned that some people don't come when you call for help and learned that even new tires find nails and corode away their valve stems. However, in all this I had my Dad come to my rescue, a friend from church stop to see if we were okay, my good and true friends calling to check on my back and my hubby picking up teh slack at home.
The silver lining is there, when I look.
