They Are Home

We got up at 3 AM, left town after getting a sandwich at Love's. We had to go to Bastrop, Texas to pick up our daughter and Grandkids. We got into the town of Bastrop, and POW!!! Blowout!! Well, I had to stop and ask directions to where we were meeting her, so I asked about a cheap tire. The place was on the way. I walked in and told them the truth, I had a ten dollar bill and a blown out tire. About 15 minutes later, we were on our way. We got to HEB, and called the shelter she was in. And sat there..and sat there. We called back, and told them we were there. She finally showed up. We went in and got sandwiches and chips. Then, we went and put all our money in the gas tank. We were cruising home, got through Dallas, Texas, and POW!! Blowout. A different tire. We put the donut BACK on the car, and drove very slowly home. While we were broke down with the kids in the car, and my grandson got sick. Our granddaughter is 3, our grandson is 11/2. It was well worth the trip.
