Tradition!

I didn't do a lot today other than to go with my Eldest Daughter, Dear Child and the 4 yo granddaughter to see Fiddler on the Roof (the 1971 film version) at a local theatre. It was an event put on by our local Jewish High School to raise money for a class trip and it was fun but looonnng. We were there for over 3 hours but the girls enjoyed it. DC liked it enough that she asked if we could see it another time, although that was before the scary graveyard scene. Afterwards she said something like "You know, I remember these things forever." But she still enjoyed the rest of it. I had a nostalgic time, especially watching a very young Paul Michael Glaser as Perchik.

In other news, our 2 rear snow tires seem to be practically bald while the front ones are fine. This was only their 2nd winter but there was an incredible amount of snow this year (considering that we normally get little or none) and we got stuck on a number of side streets and in lanes. There was only one time it was really bad, when I spent a couple of hours digging the car out (it had bottomed out on the snow in the lane!) but there was a fair bit of rocking back and forth and spinning of wheels at various times. We should have taken them off before this but we've been busy. Hubby tried to get it done this morning, but nobody was open. It looks like I may have to do it on Thursday or Friday when I'll have our car during the day. We won't buy them now, of course, but it's going to mean buying 2 new snow tires in the fall. I should try to find out how much they are so we can start putting money away.

You might be able to get a better deal on the tires by getting them "off-season". Couldn't hurt to start shopping early.
