Oh, cummon Stevie; I won't drive 470 miles (rt) just for some chicken arms but I'd do twice that for the fellowship of folks I've been dining with for 10 years (with two exceptions) to celebrate the New Year!
PS, Hey Tony, I don't see your name on the new list! Too much controversy? If you and Stevie don't come, I'm out too. Its bad enough we lost Griff!
, you make me blush, my Brother!
Would not be the same without you, or Stevie
. He gets under my skin (and maybe
I get under his, too, I dunno), but I still look forward to seeing him. Hope he and Sammie
I was planning on going, then found out that I had not one but two more surgeries before the end of the year, both arising from the 04 October crash. Had MRI on Monday, met with orthopaedic surgeon Tuesday. Replacing head of radius bone in elbow with a titanium ball is being put off for now. I'll know next week if the other surgery is still on. So tired of so many surgeries. UGH.
With the joint replacement off the table for now, and hopefully for a long time, I hope to make it to see your ugly mug, Russ, and everyone else's, too.
, since you took the initiative, can I leave it in your (more than) capable hands to make the final confirmation whether Manny's, BJ's and/or Rudy's will be open NYD? Looks like Manny's is leading in the preference poll as of now. Rudy's may be a good alternate and I believe their seating style will be most accommodating to our group size and our propensity to wander and mingle with others in the group, more so than a regular "sit-down" type of restaurant.
Looking forward to seeing everyone, longtime attendees, some-time attendees, and first-timers, everyone, wherever we meet.
Tony (and maybe Suzanne & Annabella) - D/FW
Jim - Buda
Stevie & Maybe Sammie - Austin
"BONES" - Victoria (and maybe my son-in-law)
Russ - Lakehills (lake trash)
