Rough end to a nice trip

On my way home from visiting my sisters in New Mexico, about 25 miles away from home, I had a tire blow out. Talk about scary, I had a semi truck behind me, I don't know how he didn't hit me. There was no place to pull over, I had to squeeze as much as I could on the shoulder of the road. I was worried someone was going to hit me from behind. Thank goodness two good Samaritans (my guardian angels) stopped to help me. They changed my tire and had me on my way. I was so glad to be home safe and sound. Have you ever had a tire blow out on you?

@lilnana1111 I know that this is a nightmare, it happened to us more than once. The worst was when we were vacationing on the Island of Aruba and the tire went flat on a deserted area of the Island. We were so happy when after more than two hours two American tourists decided to visit that same area and helped.
