This image speaks to me in an experience we had last week with one of our cars. We were in the Walmart parking lot getting ready to open the car door when a woman was flagging us down asking if we knew we had a flat tire. We didn’t know, but when we got out and looked, the drivers side rear tire was almost out of air, deflated!!

Thankfully we don’t have to go far these days, we have the spare “donut” we can use and we have a second car available to us.
