The Sun Was Going Down Just Like My Tire

 The Sun Was Going Down Just Like My Tire

 

But I was focused on getting my favorite property, 1560 Blue Mount Road , seen by prospective buyers. I wanted to get into the river cottage before we ran out of daylight.

 

After the tour of the main home and a hike to the river cottage, I shared with my sellers that I had a bit of problem...yep, I had a flat.

 

 

Flat Tire

 

My wonderful seller, produced this marvelous gadget.

 

tire inflator HomeRome

 

He hooked  the little inflating machine to my tire and within a very short time, my tire pressure was over 45psi. A little more than needed but it did get me home and safely in my garage.


And yes the tire is flat again but this time I will call my mechanic to come fix it, not just fill it.

Very nice that the seller was able to help you with the inflator.  I'm also glad you were able to get home before it got flat again!

If I lived closer I'd just send over My Donald to take care of that for you.  (something I asked him to do and he did for another rainer in the past)

 Good morning Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland . Look on the bright side! The tire was only flat on the bottom. The rest of the tire was round. What's the problem?

Nice to have people around you who are prepared.  Very frustating to get that unexpected surprise.  I was on the freeway here in Houston a few months ago, and saw a lady in a late model Rolls Royce pulled over on the right shoulder.  She had a gas can in her hand and was putting gas in in the Rolls.  I thought to myself, there is something you don't see everyday.

Margaret- I'm just glad you were able to make it back to your home, safe and sound.  We have something like that as well, and also one that will jump charge the battery.  (If only I knew how to use it!)

Hello Margaret ... cute post my friend and I have used these gadgets before. Although I believe you had a flat tire you cannot fool Vegas Bob with these 2 different photos, with 2 different hubcaps

Robert 'VEGAS BOB' Swetz You caught me. I made that graphic a few years ago and it was a more obvious "flat" than the one I took in the dark that night.  Thanks for the feature in your special group!

Hi Margaret --- that's a handy gadget -- glad you had some very nice(and ready-to-help) clients to make sure you could be back on the road.

Michael Jacobs That is an amazing little gadget that my wonderful  seller had available. Got me home safely and had the tire fixed...they found a nail.

My husband has one of those too Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland and I can't tell you how many times we have used it; not just for tires but it also works great to blow up air mattresses and floats here at the lake.
