Rimming It


                                                                                                                 
Grumpy at the Auto Museum.

We are off in Grumpy to the far off mesa of Otay inland from Chula Vista.  G’s found two junque yards that might have a rim for the Toyota.  From there to Costco to see if the tire is covered under warrantee.  The Street emergency dispatcher told us there is also a claims line.  Once we have the totals, we will call them.



1345:  We set out bright and early.  Finding the junk yards was easy, but the first, second, and third didn’t have a 2005 Toyota Corolla rim.  Just down the road, the brand new, fancy Toyota dealer didn’t have one either.  How really strange.

Home beckoned, and there G made a few more phone calls and was referred by the PB dealership to the Lemon Grove dealership.  They had one.  They held it for us.  Off we went again.  From there to Costco, not only was the tire covered under warrantee, but since it was discontinued we got a second tire free…for the first we paid $37.00. 

Yes, we had pizza for lunch.  Yes, we are home taking a break in an unmoving home.  Yes, shortly we will go down and sort through the horrible mess that came out of the Toyota’s trunk.  


Oh, it was bad in there.  We asked ourselves, do we really need forty cloth shopping bags?  



  • Himself:  Tire, rim, work.

  • Herself:  Did I mention how much I disliked the keyboard on the laptop.

  • Reading:  Still at that QEII.  I read so little now.

  • Balance:  Taking the QEII book with me.

    4. How funny! You should see the back of our Prius. It's got tons of reusable bags too. Worse, we often forget to bring them into the store.

      You had a great day!!!

    5. Still laughing at the cloth shopping bags. David's car looks like the warehouse of a rummage sale. Mine is slightly better.

    6. I have been MIA and had to catch up on the rim saga. Glad you are both okay and that the warranty was still good, plus a deal on a second tire.
