So yesterday was fun. I had gone home yesterday after work to change and pick up Juno to take her on a walk on base. Since Italian streets are kind of crazy, I just pulled up on the side of the curb instead of pulling into my driveway so I wouldn't have to back up into a busy street. I go get changed, get Juno for a walk, put her in her kennel in the car, and start to drive. What do I hear(feel)? Thump thump thump. Pulled into a parking lot half a block from my house, get out of my car, and see that I have a flat tire(Same tire that had the bent axel from two weeks ago). So I turned it around and drove back to my house since I live so close and Juno was with me. Called a friend of mine up since I didn't have any tools and I needed a specific tool to get the hubcaps off. He didn't either, so he drove me to the local store to get it. Now I have a spare tire on my car. Waiting to hear back from the mechanic's on how much a new tire's going to cost. I wanted to make the photo look grungy since that's how I felt after I put the spare on it, so I turned it to black and white, then put an orange tint on it, then brought the contrast up a little, sharpened it just a little to bring out the edges just a little, then finished it by adding a vibrant effect on it. This is what I got. All of this was done by a iPhone. Taken and processed. Don't usually edit this much on a photo, but thought this worked well.

This Galaxy has been in this state for quite a while, with no respect for the safety of other road users. Apparently the Ford Galaxy has a steel wire and ratchet mechanism that lowers the wheel to the ground. This often fails. This also happens to the VW Sharan (they are the same vehicle, different badges). This can easily be solved with a new part that costs ?54 (plus VAT). Fitting extra.
