Yesterday I finally got my new studded tires and rims installed. The photo is my old cars studded tires/rims I traded for a cord of wood. Fed X had delivered my rims to the wrong location and they had to be tracked down. Part of the expense of living in a climate like this besides all the fuel we burn is equipping our vehicles to drive on the ice. I had my first oil change for the 3000 mile check up on the new car and my tires and rims installed at slightly over $1500. Quite pricey I felt. We buy rims because then we can change them out ourselves in May I could have gotten off cheaper by having them switched but then the shop must do it.
Tonight we'll be decking out for a fundraiser for the museum the annual Ritz, a dinner and auction not far from the house. A sit down dinner, entertainment and dance along with a lot of friends who are going it should be fun. The theme is Winter Palace. Hopefully I can take some photos of the theme outfits. I have something I've never worn which I picked it's a red coat dress with fur cuffs and collar.
