Hello, While "doing" tires on my family's vehicles I offered to check the spare of my neighbor's beater. With an understandable measure of unfamiliarity, the wife said, "Sure, if you want to". The spare had no air and I refilled it. I told the wife what I had done. She said nothing.
Later that evening she sent her husband over to thank me. His English is better than her's (they're Polish-very nice people and great neighbors) and he was sincerely grateful in abundance.
Since the ice had been well broken for years, it served as a great "neighbor maintainer". Kira
