The van is okay after all. Came home yesterday to learn that the trouble sounds were coming from a minor problem in the exhaust system, no big deal to fix. Also the new windshield came in, which is very exciting as it means I’ll finally be able to use the defrost again! So last night I parked at 17th and St. Catherines, the better to arrive early at Broco Auto Glass for the installation.

I swear I heard a pig running around outside last night… squealing and snorting low to the ground, moving fast but stopping to snuffle here and there. What else would that be? Maybe a hybrid, a pig-boy! I didn’t get the window panel off fast enough to see it… I need to install a periscope.

Here’s a little piece of colour from across the street.
