Having fun with tires

Posted on February 22, 2017


I had to get two new tires for my car. What did I do? Of course I asked Mr. Ken, the car guy, to help me. His words to me were “Toyo.” What? Is that short hand for Toyota? Nope, it’s a type of tire. Since small cars have small tires, the tires should be relatively inexpensive. But relative is in the eye of the beholder. For the price of two tires, I could have completely re-stocked my exercise DVD library.

Since Mr. Ken was nice enough to do all the legwork for the tires, I went with him to the tire place. Even before we got out of the car, his eyes lit up since right next to the tire place was a tool place. I was afraid he was going to run into the tool place and leave me to deal with the tire guys. Ack, this is definitely a man’s territory.

In the tool place, Mr.Ken was like a little kid in a candy store. He slowly wandered up and down every aisle. I amused my self by trying to find something pink in the tool store. Something, anything. I succeeded. This is construction string. I have no idea what that is, it just looks like pretty pink string to me.

I also found some cute little tires. I have no idea what these are used for, toy trucks perhaps?

The tire place and tool store is right across the street from a nice mall. So I dragged Mr. Ken to the mall. He made a bee line for the bakery. Mr. Ken was very happy since they had cinnamon buns at the bakery. And they were very big ones too!
