Let us all bow our heads and observe a moment of silent prayer for the '89 Blazer, whose right front wheel suddenly fell off in the Target parking lot late yesterday afternoon.
Against all odds (and rational judgement), Jared was able to jerry-rig the wheel just well enough to drive ten miles home on the back roads.
The Blazer is resting comfortably in the driveway, and will be towed to Lou's garage just as soon as the wrecker driver sobers up enough to operate heavy machinery. Lou is convinced that she'll make a full recovery, and as her faithful owner I'm holding out hope.
I'll keep you posted on the outcome.
