Interesting day yesterday

Right now I'm sitting in the Mazda 6, at Shillito Park in Lexington, very close to the mall. I just got the tire repaired and the rest of them re-balanced. You might have several questions, first, let's start with the car.

Yesterday after work, Hilary and I were to drive to Cincinnati. And it is the owner of Netherland rubbers wife's 70th birthday party celebration. However, leaving Lexington was wrought with struggle. Hilary had trouble getting back in town from Louisville, work stuff, and more. THEN, we needed to get air in the tires. We only had credit cards to pay with, no cash, no quarters. So we had to use those little automatic fill-up stations that take your card. . . . . We tried 3 different locations, and 3 different cards at each one. NOTHING!!! None would accept our cards!!! Finally we get to a marathon in Georgetown, and Hil just said, "Screw it, go to the ATM and get a 20 so we can get quarters." I did, and when I was finally ready to fill up the tire, the valve stem broke off. The tire was completely flat in like 8 seconds. It was crazy. Then, to make matters worse, I was missing a component for my jack. I was having to use brute strength to get the tire up so I could change it. It was not working to say the least. I asked three different gentleman at the gas station if they could help, and all three said they were too busy and left. But a good Samaritan came to our rescue a man in a very big truck who works for Catapillar not only changed our tire, but would not except cash for helping. It was amazing. I guess God had a much bigger plan than us just being frustrated. Perhaps he protected us from getting a flat on the highway going 80, perhaps he wanted us to see his people still love genuinely, who knows?

I felt blessed even though we missed a great party, I'm sure.

However, when we were finally ready to go to bed Hillery told me she was really sad because she really wanted to spend some one on one time with me. She said, "ya know, it's been so long since it's just been you and me. I really want just us to hang out." Of course, I played it off like it's just hard for that to happen right now.  .  .  .  .  Bla bla. Little does she know, we will be spending a lot of one on one time together in the very near future.


Oh, and by the way I'm in the park because I'm waiting to meet at the Apple store to see about getting my email fixed. It's only been not working properly for a year and a half. Isn't that exciting?
