Flat Tire

I got a call from Sara at 4:30 this afternoon. She has a flat tire, can I rescue her. I bundled Charlie, Max and Elly in the car and head to South Edmonton Common to find their Mom. The kids were excited - Charlie had never seen a flat tire before. Max had so he was very self-important and lording it over Charlie.

When we found her, Max quickly assured us that indeed, the tire is flat.

Charlie had to see for herself - she was concerned that a flat tire can't roll properly.

Sara reassurred them that Daddy would take care of the car later. In the meantime, since we were in the immediate neighbourhood, we went to Michael's and Sara bought a Christmas tree and some ornaments.

A very exciting afternoon for the H-B's.

Bummer. Did Daddy ever take care of it? It seems unlikely as he was still at work when I left late tonight...

Oh I'm so glad that didn't happen when I was driving it!

At least Sara wasn't on a lonely highway in the Northwest Territories.

I've changed my share of flat tires. Yes, on a lonely highway in the Northwest Territories, as well as on a busy highway between Edmonton and Calgary. Those days are over my friend.
Daddy shmaddy? Jack schmack!
