Today's spectacularly sunny Sunday was officially declared:

The Oh Brother save thee mucho Euros in spare parts through cannibalizing this here car Day.

After 30 minutes of some fierce fighting of man against machine, flesh against metal1, I finally laid my greedy—and greasy—hands on the prized organ ripped from the belly of the beast.

Now to have this thing proofed for leaks, and if it can hold its Freon then Al Bob will be my uncle—and Lo! There will be mucho Euros left for cold beer on the future sunny Sundays on schedule.
  1. And a bit of swearing. Nothing fancy, just your average half-annoyed half-admirative "Sum' bitch! Don't you worry, I'll get you!" uttered between the teeth, only in French. The flesh stands no chance in a frontal attack against the metal, so you'd better keep your blood cool and carry on. Otherwise, the machine always win.

hazarding a guess: the plant with yellow flowers exudes yellow liquid when broken?

Usually, when I'm raking off my epidermis whilst wrenching on my 1962 Studebaker, my utterances are more akin to Tourette's coprolalia. Dogs howl and babies cry...

Froggy, I do the same, only with houses. Hate to see a house left to die or being torn down with machines. Especially slate roof and integral gutters! I have done remodel/restoration jobs with 95% salvaged materials.

Working a job on the northside of Pittsburgh a few years ago we actually had a bunch of environazi wackos try to shut us down. For putting dust in the air. As we demoed a house in order to reuse all the materials. Hypocritical fucking idiots.

That looks like Alabama landscaping to me. I'm sure there's a moldering sofa on the porch for tranquil viewing and contemplation of nature's bounty.
