Now That's Country!

Country dirt, that is.

We've lived in the country for a long time, and I know better, but every time we have a flat I have to contend with a pile of dirt in the spare.  The spare should be dropped every month or two and the dirt and gravel washed out, but it always waits 'til I have  a flat.  The cable on the old Chevy is just long enough to hook up and let down when the tire is directly under it, and a load of twenty or thirty pounds of rock and dirt is no fun at all.  You have to block up the tire, dig dirt out of the middle, and break the frog loose from the center of the rim. You're lucky if you get to do it in on a hard surface.  Life's not all bad; there was still air in it!
