My friend Nate sent me these awesome screen doors for the side barn doors of the van. This will be so handy in keeping the cats in while allowing fresh air flow so I won't have to run the A/C so much since the new vent fan does wonders in keeping air moving.
|Dandy of course had to check out the screens. He approves|
|Oooh lookit - all new and fancy!|
I ordered a new EGR valve and still need to get a new EGR gasket as well as a donut gasket since there seems to be an exhaust leak between the manifold and the front exhaust pipe. Unfortunately Dave also thinks my head gasket is leaking. This doesn't please me since all I've ever heard about head gaskets has been bad news.
In other news 4 of the cats are in Dave's house since we're here for the summer (at least). His little kitty Basil seems to be enjoying the company and my cats are pretty well-traveled so they are at home and pretty comfy anywhere ... as demonstrated by Dandy who has made a chair and this deacon bench his favorite hang out spots.

And just because I was impressed by how the picture turned out since I tend to take shaky blurry pics when using digital zoom ... this Banded Pennant dragonfly hung out with me the other day. It was very attached to this spot on the steps since if I got too close it would fly off do a lap around the yard and come right back. I love dragonflies! They are so elegant and graceful, yet creepy.

Guess that's about it for now. I'll check in again soon!
