Tomorrow?

This is a slight bump, but I felt compelled to introduce you to my newest tool.

It is called the Common Outdoor Stick


I went to check my tire pressure today, and while I was doing that I noticed that a lot of pine needles had piled into water-runoff areas around the trunk and hood seals, so I opened both to grab all the rotting plant matter.

When I opened the hood, I found a little clump of dried mud nestled in a recess of the intake manifold. It was in fact a nest belonging to whatever local flavor of Dirt Dobber calls this area home. Judging by the color of the mud, I'd say it was picked up while I was at home on Tuesday (lots of clay in it, whereas there is none to be found around here).

So I found a handy stick, knocked it off.

While this may not seem like important automotive maintenance, Dirt Dobbers have proven to be pretty dangerous little fuckers in the past.

Edit: forgot to mention that the guy across the street working on his Stingray Corvette probably thinks I'm an idiot now that he's watched me poking at the engine bay of a Mustang with a stick.
