It's hard TO believe THAT we are already at THE letter  " T "

for ABC Wednesday.

I have entitled THE first photo

TOUGH  TIRE  No Longer.

THIS blown out TIRE happened a few weeks ago.

My Hubby and I were TRAVELING on THE freeway at about 70 mph.

All of a sudden THERE was a rumbling sound and THE car begin to shake.

I am so THANKFUL my husband was driving and we made it safely

TO THE roadside.

Cars were whizzing by us but we were okay and THE  TOWING service came and changed our TIRE.

Of course THE spare TIRE THAT looks like a donut was very low on air.

We had TO get THAT  filled so we could make it TO THE shop.

TWO new TIRES and a definite dent in our wallet later....we finally made it home.

Scary but it all ended well.

Don't forget TO enlarge THE photo TO see THE ugly detail.

On TO a much prettier picture.

THESE are beautiful TULIPS my Granddaughters gave me for Mother's Day.

Aren't THE insides of THESE  TULIPS  amazing?

I finally had TO TOSS THEM into THE garbage yesterday.

THANKS for looking at my post.

Great job on T!

You were so fortunate with the tire incident ending as it did. Glad it worked out like that for you!

Enjoy the rest of the week.

The last picture is so stunning! Oh gosh, you both barely escaped with your lives! This is so scary. Made worse by being on the interstate. I am so glad your hubby was able to navigate off the road without incident. We are always seeing blown tires laying on the road, and I wonder what happened to those people.

Gosh I never even thought of tulips! I loved the flower bouquet that you got on mothers day. Glad you are ok after the bad tire.

The Terrors of travelling, but the Tulips are a nice reminder of the good things in life....

Thanks to God that you are in one piece. What could have happened is beyond imagination.
Take care!

Tire blow outs are so scary. Only happened to me once.
So glad your guardian angels were on top of it. Thinking of you often and looking forward to being with you... I think July will come pretty fast. Love and Hugs.

Su-sieee! Mac said...

The insides of tulips are the prettiest parts in my mind. Your tulips have me thinking how pretty your tire would be painted their colors. I'm glad you made it safely off the freeway. Wowza!

Great choices of the week.

I had a blowout when I was driving and a lot younger-but all turned out OK. The tulips were a very sweet gift from your granddaughter.

I prefer the terrific tulips to terrible tired tires!
