I just have one spare for five cars and we flip a coin to see who gets it this week.

That’s a whole set of tires I don’t have to buy. Rub them down with used motor oil to keep them soft.
Hi,

Ha ha, had to laugh when i read that post.

So i guess that is a lot of coin flipping? Once isnt enough for five possibilities :-)
Throw a die maybe? Then there's one left, the sixth, so that NOBODY gets it that week (ha ha).
:lol: :lol: bravo!

The sixth is a total win because that’s means we have a coffee table that week.

Hi,

A coffee table? You mean you all sit around and drink coffee?


I’ve been driving a Volvo long before anyone ever paid me to drive one.

A coffee table and coffee ? That’s a lottery win.
