Riding home from work yesterday, halfway down my two miles of gravel road, suddenly the surface had been sprayed with tar and coated with sand. Could it be that the Dept. of Transportation is really going to pave our road? I continued on at ten mph, [I normally go about 40.] trying not to get tar all over Lucille, when she started going all over the place. Pulled over to find a piece of gravel through the rear tire. Walked home, got the air tank and plug kit and put two plugs in the hole to make it home. Tire was about gone anyway. Maybe they will have some pavement down by the time I get a new tire mounted.
