Phantasmic Links 4.2.06
Lest anyone think my weekend was all fun and games, I did spend some time helping my dad as well. When trying to isolate a code on his friend's car yesterday, I pointed out that the “ghost image” he was trying to get rid of on the display of his digital code reader was in fact a sticker. I also helped him figure out that the reason it wasn't working was because his friend's car was a ‘94 and the device only read ‘96 or newer vehicles. I also indulged in several hours trying to find a diagram online explaining where a secondary temperature sender might be located on the engine block, finding nothing. The guy in the parts store sold him two, but we never found where the second one might go.
Today I changed the oil in my car and chopped and sawed a tree root to spare his shoulder, which is still recovering from having a cyst drained earlier this week. My car was due for an oil change, but how my dad justified working on the root “just to have something to do and get fresh air” mystifies me. There were several tense moments when he wanted to take the saw away from me and groused that I was bad at teamwork and he didn't know how I kept my job. He might have gotten the root out faster than I would have, but using an axe and a saw would not have sped up his healing process. I took advantage of the extra daylight to take some photos at a local beach and nature preserve using my sweet new camera, and I'll worry about sorting out 71 images later this week. For now, it's time to share this week's PHANTASMIC LINKS:
