Dave, Larry, and Lisa

Guys/GAL LOL
I have held out as long as possible and am sad to say we will not be joining you for this GTG. We were looking forward it but, things aren't going to work on my end.

We will however keep looking to find where we can come out that way and bring some Florida flavor to ya. ;D >:D

Do enjoy and get lots of pics, just don't rub it in too much :(

Hoss, we will all miss your company!

I regret that due to my current dismal financial situation I will not be making this trip, unless I win the mega million jack pot of $84 million tomorrow night. I dont have the money to keep my AV let alone take a 800 mile trip in her.
Just waiting for the repo man to knock on my door again. :(

Can you at least hook a ride with someone? We are going, but I think sandwiches are going to be the main course meal. I'm taking the hitch pit for warming up some food. I don't mind sharing a room letting you skip the bill. :B: let me know maybe I will be able to pick you up if you like. (y)

Dave, sure sorry to hear you can't make it. I second the suggestion from Tribal and MissAv. If anything changes, come on down. We'll find someplace to stick you. :)

Everyone else: there are still a couple rooms left at the Longhorn. If you can make it, let me know so I can add your mouth to the dinner list.

Hey Dave, if you really want to go but don't want to drive then why not ride along with me. You could leave whitie at my place on friday morning and pick it up on monday when we got back. Just think of all the fun you'll miss if you don't come along.

Okay AV'ers. I've made our dinner arrangements for Saturday evening. Well, sort of...

Betty started giving me all sorts of options as to menu and prices. I didn't know what to do, so I told her to just surprise us! She said that since it was Valentine's Day she would be glad to do us a surprise dinner. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that it won't be sushi. :) She understands that there may be a couple of "grilled cheese" kids. No problem.

I did make one decision. I told her 7:00pm. Hope that's okay.

I told her to expect 20 adults and eight children. Please help me out here, and let me know if this is way off. From posts, this is who I think is attending:

TexAVfan 1 adult 2 children
Texas_Space 2
Miss Avalanche 1
ChubbsAV 2 1
MoonCrab 1
Dukester 1
TribalAV 2 3
Vetman 1
TallblkTxman 1
SciFiGuy01 1
docnav 1
CAgal 2 2
RandZ71 2
ImpactAV 1

She said she had a cancellation from someone in Lubbock. RandZ71, is that you? Also, she said she had ten reservations. I count 14, but maybe some of you are sharing a room. ???

She will order food on Saturday, day after tomorrow, so if I have made a major mistake in my estimate I need to know ASAP.

Thanks for your assistance!

PS I really don't think it will be sushi. She was talking things like chicken fried steak, pot roast, pork chops, etc. The reason I couldn't decide was that it all sounded too good!

No matter what I do I can't get the adults and children columns to line up. Sorry about that. I'm using my linux computer, and I've only had it a couple weeks!

Dave, all our hopes are with you that things get better!

FYI I called Betty again. Didn't ask her the menu. Don't want to spoil the surprise. Did ask the cost. $6 per person. Young children free, but don't know the age limit.

Also, she said she had considered there might be a couple of vegetarians. If there are more than two or three it might effect how many meat dishes she should fix. So, herbivores, let me know!

Well peoples, they did it too me again. :E:
Due to scheduling conflicts at work I will not be able to make this trip.
I can't tell you all how much I was looking forward to this.
I really need to get away from work for a while but something always gets in the way. The stress right now is about to kill me. We are under such a tight project timeline right now.
Oh well, I'm ranting.

Ya'll enjoy yourselves.
