I glance over just in time to see the left rear tire roll off the truck, bounce into my car and then continue to roll down the middle of the highway! The tire is followed by the truck brakes and some other round object, all rolling willy nilly all over the road. I managed to pull over until everything rolled on by. No damage to my car - I was lucky! The pick-up driver was pretty shaken up, he just had that tire put on a couple miles down the road! So I get to the dr. 20 minutes later, the nurse was taking my vitals and commented that my BP was a bit high. Really..wonder why? HAHAHA! Nobody got hurt so all is good

Will be scrapping this afternoon - have a great day!

Becky
that is scarey - I"m so glad no one or your car was hurt

It was a regular pick up truck, the driver just had the tire replaced a mile down the road. That tire rolled right off, I'm willing to bet the tech who replaced the tire forgot to put the lug nuts back on! Very lucky that no one was hurt!

My family drove me nuts, and then I got stuck in traffic
Washed my hair and wham, several ideas hit me all at once!

Definitely lucky no one was hurt....

I know my Dad told me after having my tires changed or rotated go around the car and check the lugnuts are on... I said..well, if they are on great..but what if they aren't tight... He laughed at me... so I tried turning them... the guy at the shop got sassy with me... I told him it was for my safety and his too!

It is very simple- I got it off the web from someone making handmade holiday gifts. I just mixed 5-8 drops of peppermint oil with a cup of Epson salt. I actually used something called relation oil (it is a mix of Eucalyptus and Mint Oil). It smells very good. I got the oil at Michael's in the soap making area for about $4.00.
