Sometimes you're the windshield

and sometimes you're the bug. I had just finished eating lunch Saturday when I heard what sounded like a close by shotgun blast. Out where I live such at that is not unusual, and I looked out the windows, but did not see anyone so I went about my business. When later i went to the garage to get my handicap scooter I found a puddle of green glop under one tire, and it was flat. Further examination revealed I had at sometime run voer something the cut the tire, and after setting a day and a half in the garage it finally let go. It had an inner tube that seemed to have been sticking out the hole from what I could see but finally popped like a balloon. The cut was turned down and it had Slime for Inner Tubes in it, so I had little green splatter for about 5 feet around the tire. Thank goodness, none of it got on Joann's car which was beside it. Enough of the inner tube was sticking out into the hole that I had trouble separating the 2 of them.

It's a good thing you weren't in the garage when it popped or you may have had another mess to clean up! :lol:

It's a good thing you wasn't riding it when it popped, not telling whether it would have been another roll, or just a run through.
