Eric Beheim sent this with a note

"I saw this in an old Firestone

advertising booklet"

"Is this how the wooden wheels on

circus wagons were converted to rubber tires"

I have no idea Eric but somebody else

from Baraboo might be of help with this

This led me to create today's stuff

Thanks Eric

Some of us showbums could do with a re-tread.

Chic Silber said...

I had a heart retread with a CABG-5

5 way bypass 15 years back & also

a left hip retread a while back

Dental retreading goes on & on

Chic Silber said...

Think of all the ten hundred twenty

& twelve hundred twenty four treads

you see along the highways when they

get "untreaded" at high speed

Eric said...

Truckers refer to those treads you see on or along side the highway as "alligators."

Happy birthday Buckles. Have a blessed day

Chic Silber said...

Buckles will turn 86 on Friday the 26th

The same day Elvin Bale turns 76

I'll let them both know that "Unknown" cares

How about a name to mention

Roger Smith said...

Somebody had a Birthday on the 23rd, but we have no new pages to celebrate it.

This is entirely appropriate to post a Happy Birthday on a tire re-tread post.

Many thanks Roger but things

have gotten pretty hectic for

me once again & at my ripe old

age I just couldn't get all of

it done these past weeks

I am grateful to have gotten

past the new lower expectancy

of life in my category about

6 weeks ago as a retread

Chic Silber said...

I'll try to get back to

the Blog later this week
