I am sorry for not responding today, but I had two Christmas meals today, and I was only home in the morning and for a couple of hours between lunch and dinner.  I am finally home and I will be at Benito's about 11:45 on Friday (December 27) for our monthly Forum Meeting.  If there are any readers who are interested in attending, please come.

That's OK.  We will have a small group, but it will still be fun.  We will miss you, Dylan.

I was afraid I spoke too soon.  Out of the office the next 5 days and I just can get away today.  Maybe next month.

Well I feel dumb.

 

I'm the one that instigated doing this during the break and I lost track of what day it is.  I just remembered.  Sorry guys!

Hipolyte and I met and had a good one on one conversation.  I also ran into a fellow who used to ride a lot with the FWBA.  I invited him to join us at our table, but he wanted to catch up on his reading while eating lunch.  The unfortunate thing was that Tommy and Linda Simmons, with one of them occasionally coming to the forum meetings, called me and asked if I wanted to take TEXRail up to Grapevine and back.  This offer came right when I was getting ready to leave the house to go to Benito's.  Even though I would have enjoyed the trip up to Grapevine, I also enjoyed having our lunch at Benito's.

I called Tommy and Linda after we finished eating, and they decided that since I wasn't going, they weren't going, either.  There will be other opportunities to go to Grapevine by train.  Since TEXRail opened, my usual once per year visit to the fine city has increased significantly.  It's now way too easy to catch a train up there from my house.

Yes, unless the Friday falls on a holiday, we do it.  I've been busy lately, so unless something comes up, I will be at Benito's.

Let's make this official.  The first Forum Meeting of 2020 is going to be held at Benito's Mexican Restaurant at 1450 W. Magnolia Ave. this Friday.  The date is January 31, 2020 and the time is about 11:45 AM.  We will be discussing anything "Fort Worth".

It's hard to believe, but the last Friday of the month has popped up again.  We will meet at Benito's on Magnolia a little before noon tomorrow.

I should be there.  I need to get an oil change, so as long as I get that done early enough it should be no problem.

It was a small group, but we had some great food, some good conversation and some astounding revelations. Worst part was learning about the new voting machines. Please, if you go vote, read the instructions. (Sorry) Next forum meetup is less than a month away.

Personally, I am not.  If you all wish to meet on Friday at Benito's, you are welcome.  Also, I have a site visit to a project that might interfere, and that visit was set up by the client, so I didn't have a choice in the matter.  If we were meeting on a regular basis, it might have been one of those occasions that I couldn't make it, or I was late.

Well, I've had all my shots. Rabies, distemper, syphilis, etc. 

 

Thinking of Benito's this Friday. 

 

Infection and hospital rates are trending in the right direction.

I am fully vaccinated, as well.  I have been hesitant to eat inside a restaurant, but I have done it a couple of times this month, but only in restaurants that weren't very crowded.  I'm kind of busy right now, but I will try to make it.

Any recommendations on mattresses? I bought a new one a few years ago and utterly hate it. What a waste of $1400.
