Trees & tires

Posted 08-26-2019 at 07:36 PM by Startingover

I guess Iím lucky.... in a strange way.

Saved money to have a small tree removed but decided to tackle it myself.

While I was sitting in my garage taking a break from tree work I happened to notice a tire looked low.

Went to the tire store today and there was only 17 lbs of pressure. I was told it was a nail in a spot that canít be repaired.

So instead of my tree money being surplus money it went for a new tire!
