Learned Something New Today
The two-hour drive to meet with my basketweaving teacher, Verna, is on a remote two lane windy road. Most of the way there is no cell phone reception. Today at about an hour and forty minutes in, I had a flat tire. I have never had to change a flat before. Fortunately, there was cell reception at that spot (my lucky day!), so I called Verna. She said she would come help me out. I proceeded to get the spare tire, jack and instruction book out. I was all set up when Verna pulled up 20 minutes later. Just at the same time, two giant bald eagles circled and perched in a tree not too far from us. We got the tire changed and headed on into class. I’m including a couple pictures of Verna and my “learning cap” to date. Thank you Verna for teaching me to make baskets and change flat tires!!
