“We humans like our myths” – “Blind Spot” – Robert Parker
Headed south today to return to our Gate in South TX.
Rockin along CR 34 just south of Kaufman Tx. Gaby following me in the car.
Suddenly a panic call from her. “Bob………….I got a flat tire.” A quick look in the rearview and there she is, on the side of the road.
At that moment she decides to pull into a parking lot just on the side of the road. Wise choice. Good move.
I whip the Motorhome around, head her way and sure enough the driver side front tire is flat and shredded. Damn.
I proceed to do something I haven’t done in decades……………..change a tire.
While I’m struggling with the tire, Gaby says………..”Isn’t that a tire store over there?”. Where? On the next street.
Sure enough, in big red letters…………Panchos tires and service.
We get Pancho to put on a new tire while Gaby gets a trim in a nearby Hair Salon.
60 minutes………….we are on our way.
I think I’ll submit this as one of the greatest strokes of luck since WWII.
Now………………my time to buy a lottery ticket for sure.

I guess you did get lucky it happened by a tire shop.
So right Sonya. Talk about luck. 30 minutes later we would have been out in the middle of nowhere.

A sure sign of my age is the fact that I don’t go anywhere without Good Sam Roadside service. And it doesn’t even have to be my car!
