How did I miss this thread? I'm sure I posted to it, but I don't see that post. Must have vanished in the ether in one of Mudcat's down times.
Joybell, I'm in the large urban area in North Texas (not to be confused with the Texas Panhandle) of Fort Worth, to the left of Dallas by about 45 miles. If you're passing through Texas and happen to find yourself in this part of the state and needing a place to stay, please get in touch. I'll send my information PM.
There's a lot going on in Dallas and Fort Worth, though I'm mostly a homebody and don't get out to do it much (I'm remodeling my house still. . . that's the moneypit we live with). However, we make exceptions for company (I think that is a time honored tradition around the world--you only get out to see the local attractions when you have out of town visitors!) If you can overlook the incompletely tiled floors, we do have a guest room and you're more than welcome to stop by. We have some favorite little day-trips for visitors to see the area around here.
