Finally took the car to a tire shop today to get the nail out of the rear tire.  It's been in the tire for a couple of weeks with no loss of air pressure but I thought it best to get it looked at before it decided to go flat.  What I didn't realize and found out when the tire was off the car was that there were two nails stuck in the tire.  But now all is repaired and unless more nails are picked up everything should be fine.
The surprising thing is... although there's construction taking place in the area... almost all construction of buildings here are concrete. No wood = No nails.

The check engine light came on again as I was on the way to get the tire looked at and when there I asked if they had a computer to see what the problem was. They did and problem turned out to be with the gas cap not sealing properly.  The mechanic advised buying a new gas cap when we returned home. But at least I know there's nothing serious happening if the check engine light goes on and I know how to cancel the computer when or if the light comes on in the future.

Our grocery supply was getting a little low so we went grocery shopping in the afternoon. Yesterday we bought a BBQ chicken so there's lots of left overs for supper.

We have a call in to the dog groomer for an appointment for Leo and Hayley as they're looking a little scruffy. Sometimes it's hard to tell if they're getting fat or their hair is getting long.
