Ordered 4 New “Shoes” for The Campobello Van And Bea has come To A Seniors Center.

It didn’t take us long to figure out that our “Campobello Van” needed better tires, if we wanted to drive it over the winter. New shoes for the 1t.-van are not coming cheap. No Sir….I got a couple of quotes, some of them being “off the wall” and others just not being the right type of tread on them. At the end of the day I went with the offer from that tiny tire shop which had helped me with a tire repair a few weeks ago. Their price was acceptable and I got to choose what kind of tire I really wanted. When buying tires for winter use it is important that the tread allows for trapped snow to escape to the sides, thus keeping the right grip on the surface. Here you can see the one I chose. It’s a SIGMA all-weather tire. It has lots of room for snow and the tread is open to the sides.

If you wonder about the second part of today’s headline it’s not that Bea has moved to a Seniors Residence. (She isn’t that old yet…:-)
But she landed a job in a seniors residence and is currently enjoying her first day at work. Smile

Winter is currently “on leave” as temperatures have gone up, up and up. Needless to say, this is good news as we use much less propane and even can enjoy a few daily walks with Ms.Molly. Sun is out too and this afternoon it was downright nice outside.

Gas prices are still doing their slow descend to rock-bottom and while that is going on, critical voices are increasing in volume warning against the fall-outs of a low oil price. But I’m asking myself how did our society survive previous years when the price at the pump was that low? Now and all-of-a-sudden we’re crying Wolf anticipating a collapse of our economy?  

Strange world!

I guess there is no more stuff to bore you with so I am done.

Thanks for coming by!
