Fantastic!

Looking at the work week, Wednesday evening is most likely the best night.

I won't be able to make this. It's awfully far south and there's just a lot going on right now. I have to have a tight rein on things.

Promise me you'll let us know next time you have a stay in town?

This really sucks.

Excellent! I hope Barbara can make it as well.

Also, anyone else who wants to come.

Despite getting a late start on the job, we've managed to get to a point where we will be heading back to OK tomorrow. Dinner tonight works out perfectly.

It was good to see you, lostone!  Dinner was excellent (thank you!).



Unfortunately my drive home last night was a bit more "eventful" than I would've liked :(, but it was still great too see you guys.

What happened?

I crashed. :(

It's ironic.  I was looking for a place to pull off the road (into a gas station parking lot or similar) before getting on the freeway, so I could send a message to my wife telling her I was on my way home.  I won't do that on the road.  Wanted to be safe.

Having my eyes off the road for a second, while looking for a driveway, made me miss the light and ram into somebody's SUV.  Happened so damned quick.  My fault, definitely, I don't dispute it.  Everyone understood, even the police officer (he said he appreciated my honesty, and that "it happens"), although he was required to write me a ticket anyway, which I understood.

My air-bag deployed and the car is likely a total loss.  The other driver's car didn't fare nearly as badly, likely a new fender will have her back in shape, which is good.  I have comprehensive coverage... it'll cost me, but won't be too bad.

Luckily, with no accidents or tickets in the past 9 years on my policy, I qualify for "accident forgiveness," which hopefully will help me out here.  Assuming the car is totaled, I'll probably be shopping for a new one soon.  Such is life.  I walked away with just a few bruises and scrapes on my forearm from the air bag.  In the end it's just a car, coulda been a helluva lot worse.
