Your wife can expect one chick to talk diesels. My 16 yo daughter
changed a cylinder head on the 91 Jetta this summer. Her driving
has been hampered by a broken wrist (from basketball), and an
appendectomy (last week), but the cast comes off the 21st, and
her trainer is working on building the abs up again. Her first
love isn't diesels, but as she puts it, it's cheap transportation
to basketball, and the guys are always amazed that she can talk
about the nuances of injection timing on a compression ignition
engine. On the other hand, if there was a 6' 1" babe who demanded
my attention, i'd listen too. Being blond helps. Being able to
dunk chinches it.
For reference, tell your wife we're about an hour from Niagara Falls,
and my wife says that Niagara-on-the-Lake has good shopping.
There's also an aviary on the Cdn side of the Falls.
