What would I do without all of you?

My dear friends, Flo and Raymond, invited David and me to lunch at the Pineapple Room yesterday. Here we are: (left) Me, David, Flo, and Raymond:

It was very nice to see them again and we caught up with what we were doing lately. The lunch was delicious. David and I ordered the Lunch Express, which consisted of soup, salad, sandwich, and dessert. Flo and Raymond ordered fish.

We finished with dessert, a strawberry tiramisu and vanilla ice cream:

After bidding our friends goodbye, we shopped at Macy’s and then headed home.  My Hyundai Accent began making a loud noise and started rocking and rolling. I told David it must be a flat tire, and it was:

I parked on Nimitz Highway, while David called GEICO for free roadside assistance. This is David, peering at the front left tire:

While we waited for help to arrive, we gazed at the beautiful Navy-Marine Golf Course:

A man from Pop-A-Loc appeared within 30 minutes and inflated and installed our spare tire:

We plan to buy a new tire today.

Thank you, Flo and Raymond, for the delicious lunch. Thank you, David, for knowing what to do when my tire went flat. And thank you, GEICO and Pop-A-Loc, for your free roadside assistance.

What would I do without all of you?

    That tiramisu looks to die for. You stayed calm and enjoyed the view. And took pictures for your post. That’s the way to handle those bumps in the road that are bound to happen sometimes.

    Roadside assistance is the best purchase a car owner can make. I’ve used mine many times over the years.
