prune picker

This is the blog of a prune picker. (Native born Californian) Retired oilfield. I am an old man. (91) I blog a lot about my body and getting old. As I approach death life gets more interesting. More interesting is not good. I still drive. I attend sports, music, and civic events. I am writing my memoirs. I attend swim class three times a week. Some of my blogs might be interesting. A lot of my blogs are silly and trivial. None are very long.

I hit a pothole.

A few days ago I really hit a pothole hard. I thought this is sure a rugged car to take such a blow. Sunday morning I woke up to a very flat tire. Right front. This morning I met Mr Walpole at his Tire Store. I believe that the tire is ok but the wheel?

Just a little bent. Could not hold air. Todd DeMoss said these dents happen with aluminum wheels and low profile tires. Have to send it off to Dallas for refurbishment. Only cost $280. Expensive pot hole. My little car looks like a cripple with that little tire holding it up.

I am coming down with nose and sore throat. Should stay home anyway.


  1. I hope you and your car feel better soon.

    1. The car may get well before me. I have a cold and a sore throat. Love.
