The wild grape vines are trying to crowd it out, but if the bushes and vines in other areas of my place are any indication, this battle will go on and on and on and there may never be a winner. I am going to have to cut both back before they force me off my property.
Now, I have a mystery. Maybe you all can solve it. The other day, my wife and I got in the Jeep to head out and when I started to move I heard a thump. . . thump. . . thump, so I stopped and looked under and all over the Jeep. I didn't see anything wrong, so went out the driveway and onto the road. Now it was going thump-thump-thump. The faster I would go the faster the thump-thump got. I figured it was the constant velocity joint, a u-joint, the drive shaft, a wheel bearing or something else that was going to cost me time and money. Limped back home by going around the block. Got out and looked it over again. This time I found this stuck to the face of the tread on my left front tire. I have never seen anything like it and have no idea what it is or where it came from. The Jeep was fine when I parked it the day before and then the next day this way glued to the tread. What the heck is it and where did it come from.
I hope you all can solve the mystery. I give up. All I know is that it is rubber and it had attached itself to my tire. But what really blows my mind is that it wasn't there when I parked the Jeep, but it must have been. Maybe this could be one of Hermit Jim's mysteries. Now, you all have a great day, you hear?
