Snow Tires

by Scott Smith

I did a good deed — I got snow tires on the pickup.

Robinson is going to be driving the pickup quite a bit this winter, and I have recurring nightmares of her spinning it out once a week. That happened to my mother in her little Ford pickup (1983?). She solved the problem by vowing to never own anything but front-wheel drive / 4-wd vehicles.

I’m hoping the tires will make her drive safer, and I feel pretty good about that.

Do you think the tires count as this year’s Christmas gift? Hmmm. I smell a new poll.
