So then, why did I skip this year's fest? Well, with a new-born son at home, Waterfest was just not on this Summer’s agenda. In fact, as I write this, I am rocking little Owen and making those goofy baby-appeasing noises that you once enjoyed - maybe your mother still makes them for you.
I'd like to say that missing this year's festivities doesn't bother me, but it does - terribly. In fact, I cried myself to sleep last night - well, not really - but I was wicked bummed. Alas, the situation is what it is. So, for the sake of consolation, I’ve told myself that I’ll have twice the fun at next year’s Waterfest and that maybe - instead of just being a spectator - I’ll bring something to show. Duh, I’d better get to work, I’ve only got a year to prepare.
Update: Just to prove that I am serious about bringing something to show, I offer up this picture of the intake manifold and throttle body that I've been busy cleaning this afternoon. By the way, this is for the Inari Silver '80 Jetta.
