Spent the holiday weekend in Kansas City at Conquest. However it was not easy getting there. We didn’t get to leave when we had orginally planned because it turned out Sue had to work Friday morning. Before we could leave Had to have a new battery put in the car on Friday and the mechanic mentioned that I would probably need a to replace one of my tires at some point. Then when we were enroute and just about fifteen miles south of Butler, Mo around 4 p.m. and that was when the tire blew. But it wasn’t the one that the mechanic had mentioned, it waas a different one. I was trying to change the tire when one of our friends from Texas pulled over and ended up changing it for me ( for which we bought him dinner the next night). Then we had to go in search of a replacement tire. (don’t get me started on those explative deleated donout tires). We got one and made it into the con hotel only about an hour and a half late.
