typical friday night

wine and inner tubes

Had to move the operation to the laundry/garage due to lack of light (I like this photo) (the crayon marks the spot of the puncture!)
And… for the record: it's goathead season! Look it up if you must. Or imagine a spiky seedpod that penetrates all and everything. It was a goathead that popped BOB's tire that you see pictured above.

And… I know you won't believe this, but my shoe picked up at least a dozen goatheads on this morning's run - on one shoe!

Goathead: the mere mention of that pest recalls pierced tires and bloody fingers! Your post reminded me to treat those buggers like toxic waste, burn them or something, so I don't spread them further while trying to remove them.

Thanks, JRA. I never know what to do with them when I pluck them out. If I'm at home I throw them in the trash. But out in the world its tricky - especially when I encounter so many at once.
