Funny mystery leak...

Lately my radiator has been wet right under the rad cap, dripping down along the seam. I just took for face value and assumed my radiator was leaking. It was a very slow leak and I kept a good eye on the temp guage, and never drove it too far away. My lower radiator hose burst on me last week, Today while moving the car to work on it, I noticed a tiny pinhole spray, so small it was hard to see, coming from that hose and spraying right on top of my rad cap. After closer inspection it seems that my radiator is fine, and this hose was pinhole spraying my radiator all along making me think IT was leaking, until the hose finally gave up all the way. Funny what cars will do to you when you think you know whats wrong with em.....
