Well. Looks like I forgot to post something for tonight. Maybe that's because...nothing much happened today.
I did encounter a car smack dab in the middle of the road. Stopped. In my lane as I rounded a blind curve. A woman and little girl were wringing their hands as a guy carried a big tire from the back of his truck. Which was also parked in the road, in front of that lady's SUV. Her front left tire was absolutely shredded. Down-to-the-rim shredded.
Maybe it's just me, but I'm of the opinion that if your tire is already shredded down to the rim, you might as well drive it another 75 feet and get the confounded accident-waiting-to-happen off the freakin' pavement and into a private driveway before somebody gets killed.
Funny how nobody ever seeks out my opinion.
