Now- take a look at this guy in the photo with me:
So, we rolled into Seattle Thursday knowing we'd need to find a tire shop. Our trailer blew a tire (more like shredded a tire) back in Montana, and that left us with the spare in use, so we needed to have a new tire put on the rim to replace the one that blew. The plan was to drop off the trailer at Pastor Bug's church, drop off the bad tire at a shop in Seattle, fly to Alaska, and pick up the tire when we returned. So, when we got into town on Thursday, we explained what had happened with the tire and asked Pastor Bug if he knew of a good shop nearby. He suggested a place.. About ten minutes later, Paula and I were discussing just how we were going to put 5 kids in the Jeep and haul this nasty black shredded tire. We didn't really want to get all that road crud on anything, and with the car loaded as it is, someone would have been effectively holding the tire on their lap. We didn't have any way to wrap it in anything, so ??? Would you believe that EXACTLY as we were having that conversation, Pastor Bug walks up and asks about the tire size, then takes our bad tire to the shop. About 45 minutes later, he returns with a brand new tire on the rim. Coincidence? I don't believe in coincidences.
Fast forward to today's show- immediately after the performance, Pastor Bug goes outside and puts the new wheel on the trailer so that we're all set to go. Biker guys might seem intimidating, but if ever there was a case of "Don't judge a book by it's cover", Pastor bug is it!
The show itself was lots of fun. Here's a pic with some of the audience:
