Whirl-wind

No, I'm not in Kansas...I did however have quite the road trip. We left on Tuesday aft to drive to the Lower Mainland to deal with more Government paperwork for Hubby's Mom's pension, etc....why does it have to be SO darn confusing, complicated and screwed up??? Never mind answering that...it's the Government, that's why :P
It's a long trip, taking 14 hours of driving to get there, passing thru Williams Lake, where I always wave and say hi to fellow Blogger friend, Ms. L {Hiiiiii....Byyyeeee}
Towards Cache Creek the elevation gets pretty high and the rain that was coming down suddenly grew thick and slushy...what???!!!...snow in July?? Bazaar!!
On the way back home our tires started to bounce and vibrate, causing hubby to think the tires needed to be balanced(ok, don't laugh....I really don't know much about these things :P) It was getting worse so we stopped to have it checked out. Horrors....the rubber on three tires was separating from the steel walls!! Yikes, not funny! But, we have low-profile sport tires, which are hard to find....what to do in a small town?? While Hubby got on the phone to see if the Dealership in the Lower Mainland had some they could over-night to us, the mechanic called the local Kal-Tire and wonder of wonders....they "happened" to have 4 almost brand new ones they couldn't get rid of....so we bought four new tires for a small fraction of a brand new set...We were feeling very blessed by that time. We got home just before 11:00pm....but we were home to sleep in our own bed *blissful sigh*
