However, I, unfortunately, had to go to the funeral of one of my eldest boy's football teammates.... he was on the back of his Dad's bike - and the old tyre on the back blew and the kid hit a tree. Incredibly sad.
A boy in my other son's team was killed by a dingo around the same time.
Shit happened - twice. Once on the road, once camping. Shit won't stop me doing things... but it makes me more aware
btw... I reckon checking the age of vehicle tyres should be a compulsory part of registration renewal. Anything over 6 years old... replace it.
A man should only do the work that is required of him. To do more is a form of greed.
