Ok, I just sat in a parking lot with a flat tire and nobody even asked if anything was wrong, just kept walking. (The worst one was the guy waving at my son then saw the flat tire and put his head down and kept going.) So, I must highly endorse having one of those flat repair kits in your car. My dad & brother had just gotten me this one that plugs into the "cigarette lighter" of the car and puts the slime in too, my mum had put it with us this morning so actually without too much hassle we were able to get the tire reinflated and sealed and drive home. I'm heading back to graduate school so I'll be an hour away from my dad & brother, that's why they gave me this kit. Just a reminder if you don't have an auto emergency kit in your car, it might be a good time to add one.
I will be the first to admit I will call the car help service rather than changing my own flat....lol. That is one chore I am not good at. My last flat my son ended up having to help me with.... Now I will be calling the help that came with my car....
Yes, they did film parts of Bernie here. It was a big controversy in town and still is to some extent. I finally saw it, and I mostly laughed at it. I was a bit annoyed at the way they used the old choir director from the junior college's name in one of the citizen comments. He would never have presented himself to anyone with a five o'clock shadow, and I can't remember the man ever using the word "ain't." He's been deceased for a while now, and I'm not sure how they chose real names to put in the film.
This flat was while I was out of town, I got so used to Carthage I am actually having to remember all the safety things. Let's put it this way, local police regularly have to issue reminders that you need to be sure to roll up your truck windows if you're going inside a store. It's a nice little town, really, don't let Bernie put anyone off.
