And no, it's not just so I can get some new counties out of it

Looks like Nicole and I are going two-for-two on visiting Texas during Thanksgiving weekend. Last year it was Houston and Galveston. This year: Dallas. She and I haven't really had any kind of official wedding anniversary getaway weekend like we'd hoped—I mean, yeah, we were down in southern Arkansas during that weekend, but that was to celebrate her grandmother's 90th birthday (the date of which was actually a couple of weeks before that, but the family had to postpone the gathering because of a certain, ahem, Portland trip). So we thought, what the heck, we have the long weekend off anyway, so why not make this our anniversary trip?

We're actually going to make a big loop out of our journey. We'll have Thanksgiving dinner down in Durant, Oklahoma with Nicole's dad's side of the family, then drive right down to Dallas that night (hopefully the turkey won't make us sleepy behind the wheel). On Saturday, we're going to drive north on I-35 to Oklahoma City, stopping to look at some spectacular waterfalls in the Davis Mountains.

Should be a good trip.

Drive carefully, Stan...and I'm really hoping you can get some cool street blades out of this one.
