Scary noises are extra scary. Every now and then I get a racket and jarring like I'm running over some junk in the road, but no junk. Or like I hit a pothole. I can't tell from visual inspection what it could be, beyond the free-dangling section of tailpipe, but I rotated that through every angle of motion and it didn't seem able to interfere with any moving parts. Could be wrong, tho.
Two week stay this time. I don't get much done when I go for a week. Monday gets blown on what I call fellowshipping and Friday is usually a waste due to early flights. Bah! This way I can spend the intervening Saturday apartment hunting, and the subsequent Sunday going to church up in SLC.
