    I pulled out the garden hose to flush my engine today, hooked it up as usual, and there was no flow out the tattle tail,  and lower than usual flow out the prop. Checked for the problem and found a gardenia lizard wedged in the inlet of the flush hose on the engine.

    I guess some guts made it through because I had to clear the outlet of the exhaust cooling manifold with a wire to get it to flow correctly again. (maybe even better)

    During thus process I see a odd bird stalking the shrubs near the sidewalk and witness it catch and eat a lizard.

    just wierd
