"Witch" & I went to see a show t-nite @ the BellyUp venue in Solona Beach --

https://www.facebook.com/events/268175849978656/



young fella sings the "Highwayman's" songs -- does em well



now I *wonder* why *I* like the highwayman song?



http://snowchains.tripod.com/highwayman-lyrics/



on the way TO the show, "witch" & I stopped twice to help folks w flat tires first was WB I-8 JEO the Waring Rd. exit -- small car w a woman & 3 kids LR FT BO -- she had the kids outta the car and up on the embankment wrapped in blankets [ it was COLD! ] fairly dangereous spot here -- and she was unloadin a ton of stuff outta her trunk to git to the spare as we arrived -- I LIT up to protect us all and got to liftin the car and removin the BO as she was diggin the spare out [ it was FLAT ] don't ya jist KNOW that -- no worries - aired it up and sent her on her way, coverin her escape as she launched --



then, some further distance along, on I-805 NB near the Governer's Dr. off, we came upon anuther small car -- thisun w a RR BO FT -- fella's got it jacked up and he's jumpin on his one arm lug wrench to loosen the lug nuts as we pull up behind em - but - my "spidy" sense is tinglin so I go up to em & push my thumb inta their spare -- don't ya know it -- TOTALLY flat as well had jist enuf air left in my tank to "assist" them too -- they was REAL happy we'd stopped



made it to the venue in time to have dinner, see the show, and head home -- ALL the way home w absolutely NO one stranded beside the road -- a 70mph cruise all the way -- good thing too - had no more air in my tank -- now, someone outta gas -- I coulda helped them



w the 4 I'd helped earlier in the day on a "dedicated" play cruise that makes 7 t-day

Beulah is currently undergoing "surgery" --

Havin her "nervous system" [ wiring ] ALL replaced and refitted by an expert!

Me, I've always been kinda ashamed to have *my* less professional wiring looked at - everything *worked* but, it was a snake's nest to look at and I KNEW it would BE a big, time-consumin issue to REdo -- as much of it was destroyed-damaged in the crash that "killed" Beulah and during the "REbirthing" work that was performed to bring her BACK to LIFE for me --

fella that's threadin her electrical "veins" estimates a coupla weeks time -- *I'd* guess 4 to 6 weeks -- we'll see

I'm just exCITED that *he's exCITED to BE doin her for me!

Thankee KINDLY Paul!
