Some days don't go as planned

Woke up yesterday morning and had to go to Ashville(south of Columbus) to run some things to WIXYjr, who was spending the weekend at his aunt's house. I went by myself, so it was the WIXYmobile making the trip. Trip down went without a hitch, a couple of stops to stretch my legs and gas up.

WIXYjr suggested we go for some lunch, so we headed to Circleville and ate at Arby's. Upon leaving the restaurant, much to my horror, we saw that the WIXYmobile had a flat. Needless to say, we had to take care of it, so the balloon spare went on, and off to the Wal-Mart across the street. You see I didn't want to drive 150 miles on a balloon spare with no backup. I'm crazy but not nuts.

I also had a headlight out, so I had to get that fixed, as the police sorta frown on your car winking at them.

Kudos to the TLE(tire and lube express) folks at the Circleville Wal-Mart. Even though I spent more money than I had planned that morning, and spent more time away from my wife than I really wanted to, the folks there took good care of us, and made our time there enjoyable. Plus father and son were able to spend some quality time together.

My wife was upset that we didn't spend any time together, and I can understand that.

How was your Saturday?
