"A Slight Fee..."

Well, my Jeep will run endlessly without need for repairs, but it seems that every time I come over to Madison to visit my folks, I end up tossing a hefty chunk of change to my dad's mechanic.

This time it was a tire with a slow leak, sagging like a beanbag by the time I caught it. Mr. Madison Mechanic tells me that the tire was plugged before on the sidewall, and the plug is leaking. Yes, that's true, happened a few months ago. I'd been thinking of getting new tires pretty soon anyhow. So it's four new tires for the Jeep, which as you can well imagine adds up to a pretty penny; and my dad's mechanic is once again, as usual, enriched on the occasion of my vacation visit.
