I did get new tires and new jack today. I wanted 10-ply but the shop told me that they don't make 10-ply for 15 inch wheels. I'd have to order bigger wheels, etc. So I settled for 6-ply and a new jack. I think it'll be fine.
Other than that, nothing exciting. Caught up housework. The closest thing to fun was when I thought I saw a Mexican Sootywings butterfly, which would have been a lifer. But it disappeared before I could get a photo. All efforts to relocate it were futile. This is the only sootywings I got a photo of today. It's just a Common Sootywings.
I'll search again tomorrow for the Mexican Sootywings. There's a chance I was mistaken. The difference between the two species is quite subtle and I didn't get but a quick look.
Here are a couple of butterfly pics I took at Shafter two days ago. The first one I'm posting because it's a lifer for me. Sheep Skipper.
And the next one because Brian loves it so much and asked me to post it. Acacia Skipper.
Here's a sentiment I can really, really relate to.
