Be Prepared

When I arrived home from work and exercising at Curves my husband had quite an interesting adventure to share.  He and our Pastor, Ron, had gone to a place that does special wood cuts, etc. for Ron to buy a mantel for his parent's fireplace.

On the way home they spotted a car along side the road with a woman looking through her trunk.  They decided to see if she needed help and sure enough she did.  She had a flat tire and her donut tire was unusable and she had no other spare.  Aaron and Ron told her about calling Les Schwab.  She had no money but both Aaron and the pastor said that they would pay for the tire.  The guys went over to the nearest McDonalds for lunch and then came back to wait with the lady.  After an hour the tire guys showed up (right on time) and fixed her tire.  $136.  Ron gave her his address with the hope that she'll be able to pay him back.  But even if she doesn't he will have done a good deed.  We'll split the cost of the tire with him.

So Aaron sent out an email to our lady friends telling them they should make sure to have a spare and a jack and any other needed tools in their vehicles.  So if you only have a donut tire-think about getting a spare.  Make sure you have a jack.  You don't want to be stranded along a freeway or back road unprepared.
