from my state – literally and figuratively – and other places. i'm not in florida any more, but i haven't given up the sunshine.


my first tire change

my first tire change,
originally uploaded by sunshineandbeyond.
i can't really say i did it ALL by myself, because well... i had to make two phone calls for pointers. but, lots of hopping on the tire iron, multiple toe cramps, and two seriously black palms later -- tire changed.

the best part -- just as i was tightening the last screw the guy next door heard the telltale noise of a lug nut being (he thought) loosened. being a nice gentleman, he sauntered over to save the day. but as he came around the side of the car he said, ‘oh! you’re done.”

that’s right.

By the time AAA gets there these days you could change your tire and go have dinner. Always a good thing to know how to do. I actually changed my first tire before I could drive, but then you know what a tool hound I am.

How have things been with your newly found Butch Identity? :-)
