Eeyore has new shoes!!! Well, 4 new tires. $632. Ouch. Had put over 64K miles on this last set. Still legal tread left, but I don't wait until the tires are in dire need of replacement to replace them. It's not worth the worry. I know I had a slow leak in at least one of the tires and I had definitely gotten my money's worth out of them.
Please send good thoughts and healing vibes to my friend Joycie's dad. Tuesday, he'll be having heart bypass surgery.
