Potholes and tacos and rain, oh my

My goodness. At this point, we wish for Mrs. Smith’s sake that the story might begin to improve, but alas, it is not so. The adventures continue!

Saturday August 28 / overcast skies, falling temperatures

Heading to Skokie to cheer on a friend walking in the Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day, Mrs. Smith manages to hit, head-on and at appropriate tollway speed, The World’s Largest Pothole.

Mrs. Smith: “Is that my tire?”

Trixie: “Affirmative.”

Major Day Saver #1: Good Samaritan Saviors / Truckers who stop to change flat tires for Hapless Females (Mrs. Smith would be wise to keep forking out that AAA membership fee just in case)

Major Day Saver #2: Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer 3-Day walkers and volunteers. It’s an awesome thing.

Major Day Saver #3: the Tierra Grill in Elmhurst (correction: Villa Park), proving once again that where there are tacos, there is joy

Footnote: It’s going to take a little advance remuneration to get Trixie anywhere near the northern territories with Mrs. Smith any time soon.
