Bad luck, good luck

Some days you just know know how things are going to work out. As I was leaving a meeting last night I looked down at my wheel and noticed the "Chrome Clad" was peeling off. Needless to say I was ticked. Got home and checked and I'm 2,000 miles out of warranty. Not good! So this morning I started to town to check on some new wheels and happened to think that my son bought some not to long ago, and he's one of those that searches for the best prices. I decided to give him a call and see where the best prices he found were. Of course he ask why and I told him what the deal was. He said, "Dad I have a almost new set of EOM Sport wheels laying in my garage floor". "You can have them if you want them." Well I can't let him give them to me but I can sure take a discount over what a set of four new ones would cost me anywhere else. Anyway for once I didn't just have bad luck, but some good luck to go along with it....sure made a cold winter day go better.
