Hi Lynn!  Work has arranged a car, so driving is ok for us, at least,
I hope so, I don't know what I'm driving yet.  Probably not as cool
as an M roadster, though.  I have a couple constraints, in that I'm
one of the coordinators for the conference I'm attending, so I'm
not able to be out very late.  (Also, being from the central time
zone, not very late may be earlier than I usually expect.)  If the
constraints aren't a problem we might be up for the ride, being
unfamiliar with the area, but we can always deal if it is a problem.

It sounds good to me!
