As Free as the Air

The best things in life are free.
 Ever remember saying that?

And it’s still true:
 A walk in the park -
as long as it’s not a Disney Park!
A good book on loan from the library -
as long as you return it on time.

And of course AIR.

Wait a moment!
Not entirely true.
Especially if you want to put some of that air in your car tires!

The other day I noticed my 17 year old's "ride" had a tire
that looked a little low.
Deciding to do him a favor, I took the second set of keys for the old 
1990 Ford Ranger
and drove up to the corner.

Did you know: It’s now a dollar a pop!  For Air!

Even more, if you haven’t taken off all the little valve caps,
tested to determine which tires need air, exactly how much,
and put on your running shoes before you drop your coins in.

Dale Earnhardt, Jr’s pit crew can do it in the allotted time.
The rest of us - well, 6-8 quarters ought to do it.

Air’s still free - sort of.

Are you taking anything - or anyone - for granted?

Take Care,
