Aw, this old pic of Penny at Christmas made me misty-eyed.

It really doesn't feel like Christmas to me but then, it rarely does. I have my moments that it's ok, but mostly, I just want to ignore it.

The new car almost lost a tire this afternoon. Scared the crap out of me; was wobbling and knocking like crazy and I was really frightened. But I had to make it home as I had a fitting with a client.

Some friends from out of town whose marriage ceremony I'd performed, saw my post and came right on over. He's a mechanic and saw right away that I had only one lug nut in the right front tire, holding it on. Apparently that's a fairly common problem; tire places putting them on either too tightly or not tight enough and then having them either sheer off or loosen up and fall off.

So here I am without a car again....on Christmas, with places that I have to go for work that I'm getting paid less for than before.

I'm really not feeling Christmasy at all.

I can't believe the bad luck you've had with cars. :o Hopefully you can get all the lug nuts in place, on all four tires!, and be back on the go again.

I don't trust it to drive as it's still wobbly even though three lug nuts are on it. Going to have to have it towed to a nearby shop, hopefully on the 26th.

Meanwhile, I have a lovely Toyota loaner 'til I can get it in there.

Yeah, bad luck seems to be following me.
