    My first visit to the Lone Star state to spend Christmas with the in-laws... is there anything going on either local/culturally or F-chat/FCA-wise that I could do during the day :)?

    Visiting in-laws is important, but so is getting away from them...

    Ryan, will you have a car. Any kind of a car? I may be going over to Florida to visit my mother. If not, maybe we can get together.

    I'll be in town the 28th-31st, but working. We could meet for lunch. You should tour Ferrari of Dallas, Lineback, Lamborghini of Dallas, and Norwoods. JimE and I work by Norwoods and could meet there for a quick tour and then lunch afterwards.

    Ah, what about the machine guns?

    If possible, I'd love to introduce you to my daughter cause she's thinking very serioursly about Law School. (She's a sophmore at Dartmouth.) Plans for the week after Xmas are not very clear yet, but I'll PM you once the clouds break.

    You don't say where in the Lone Star state your visiting? Not quite like Mass where you can drive cross state in a couple of hours ;)

    If you are going to be in DFW give me a yell. How long are you going to be here? Marci & I do our holiday party blowout this year on 1/3. This year we invited about 250 of our closest friends ;)

    I will be off from the 22nd to about 1/7 or so. So if you are in the DFW area just give me a yell.

    Rodney, does it take you 4 days to recover from your party? :)

    And he actually DOES say where he's going to be, the title of the thread is 'Visiting DFW......'

    Ah okay missed that one. In the middle of writing reviews, I am a little brain fried ;)

    Yes it does take @ least 4 days to get over it. Just cleaning the house takes @ least 2 days minimum. I cook for a week ahead so it's pretty much a two week process. Basically it's catering a large meal for 250 people or so.

    Rodney - thanks for the invite, I'd like to stop by and see Plano, especially since it just was just chosen as Money magazine's Best Place to Live in the West (100k+ population).

    I'll email you next week when we get our scheduling worked out a little better.

    Dale - sure. Just send me a PM. By the way, where's "The Woodlands?"

    So does anyone want to meet up for lunch or something on Monday? I'm working (boo!) but could stretch lunch to a few hours. Maybe Norwoods/Lunch/Lambo Dallas?

    Of course, that assumes Norwoods and Lambo Dallas are open. I tried calling both just now, but of course there's no answer on Christmas Eve Day :)

    Oops. I just read this after I sent you a PM, Rob. Monday would be fine! If everything's a go, I'll be there at 11am. Going to bring my little brother too, I'm starting to get him hooked on F-cars too...

    I'll be at Norwoods 11am. Jim, are you going to LoD? I might leave my car there and might need a ride back to work after Dinks. I don't think I have time for LoD today.

    Not going to LoD, coming straight back to work. I can give you lift if you need it.
