Wow....

Well, today was a beautiful sunny day. My stomach has been rather upset from all the Advil the doctor has had me taking, but I went for a walk at lunch and was thinking about a nice sit on my deck when I got home from work, then.......

My son stopped home after work on his way to his night class, he mentioned his car was acting up, so I told him to drive his dad's...nah, it will be okay. So, approximately 2 minutes later the phone rings...mom, my tire fell off my car and the car is smashed!

He was still on our own street, just about 1/2 a mile from home. Yep, there he was, pulled off the road, no wheel on car, fender smashed, rotor smashed, missing lug nut, not good. I pulled off the road and just sat in the car wondering what to do. Of course we were by entrance to plaza where BJ's and a bank are, so our cousin saw us and came over, a friend drove by and yelled, a couple of guys walked over from their house..yep, your tire fell off, must have not been tightened on. I called our local shop, no tow truck, local body shop, no answer, friend, can't tow without tire on, called another company who does 24 hour towing. They showed up about 1/2 later and took another 1/2 hour to get it rigged up for towing. Off it went to the repair shop and back home we came. All I can say is thank God it happened close to home and in a slow speed zone. Yesterday he traveled home from his fiance's, which is 1 1/2 hours away. That would have been really bad! So, no funny Pug stories or photos today. Off to bed I must go so I can get up nice and early to drive my son to work.

Wow that was lucky he was so close to home! Has he had his tires rotated lately? Maybe they didnt get screwed back on good?

Thanks, he is okay. Car is around $1,000 to fix..yikes! I have been feeling somewhat better. Wish I knew exactly what's going on. My arms are back to normal after emergency room, so I guess I'll go get my bloodwork done now!
