I'd Catch A Grenade For Ya

I had the day off yesterday.
The short story is:
I blew a tire 
on the way to Michaels 
to buy these beads:

And, while I usually try to buy Czech beads
or handmade beads
these just called to me when I first saw them
I should've bought them then!
All was going well until  the tire blew out.
And I had to wait for the tow truck for an hour.
Then I had to wait another several hours to get the tire (s) replaced.
4 hours later.
I was at Michaels.
I did it.
I finished the grenade necklace.

I Love it!!
It makes me laugh.
Hopefully, someone else will love it.

I made this too.
It has more of a calming influence.

There you have it.
My schizophrenic mind at work.
Have a great weekend!

Great fun grenade necklace. Sorry your tire had to blow...seems like some sort of connection to the grenade. Safe Labor Holiday weekend...

Oh dear. A flat tire. Last time this happened to me it took a frustrated man honking at me repeatedly before I pulled over to see what all the honking was about. Couldn't feel that tire was flat while I was driving. Grrrrr! Now I carry a paperback book, water and a snack with me. Funny grenade story. Sometimes we just HAVE TO HAVE that certain thing.
