How to increase your home's curb appeal in seconds!

Recommended Posts

Folks,

My wife and I just said farewell to Texas Jim and his Darling Wife. They were kind enough to stop by for a few hours and dine with us at our home in Winnemucca, Nevada. We had a a great time chatting all things Cadillac and then some. Jim is the classic Gentleman from Texas with a deep streak of technological know-how.

The dinner was great, but the real desert for me was driving his 2006 DTS at speed out to my job. I believe we hit 120 in a few moments, but it was so smooth that I swore we were barely rolling, such that I could have got out and walked. I noted several times that I could easily get into a lot of trouble with that car. The Northstar snarl still sounds suberb, even under all the fine appointments.

Unfortunately, he eventually got his keys back and managed to drive off with his own car!

GM should be paying Texas Jim as a rolling Ambassador!

Best Regards,


Add power to leave problems behind. Most braking is just - poor planning.

Hey that's great, glad you guys got together! The cars look great side by side. I am sorry now, that I didn't get down to Virginia when Jim was in the vicinity!

Curb appeal, indeed! Two beautiful cars and two handsome guys! I can understand how you'd want to check out the horsepower and ride!

It's wonderful the dear friends were able to share conversation over dinner. The memories made are forever!

Yes, I'm in Texas, too! I'll be close to his neighborhood in the next couple of weeks.

I noticed he didn't have his front license plate on, nor was there a mount for it. My boss lives in Dallas, and he didn't put his front plate on, either. When I asked him about it, he said no one else puts theirs on who lives there. I believe the following day, after he left our office, his wife got a ticket for not displaying hers. He asked me to Fedex his front plate to them.

If Texas Jim drives thru our area, he could get stopped and get a ticket for no front plate. I suppose that's just a Dallas thing, a law that is not enforced.

If I recognize Texas Jim while I'm in the Metroplex, I'll wave a big "Howdy" to him!

I just want to add a little note to this.

Darling Wife and I really enjoyed our all too brief time visiting with TDK and his lovely wife.

He has a REAL NICE low mileage DeVille. In a couple of months I will have more miles on my '06 than he has on his DeVille. :D

Another little note of interest....TDK cooks a GOOD steak. :D

With your user name being what it is I'd have to be hard pressed. I, however, do find it entertaining.

The definition of an enthusiast is "a person filled with enthusiasm" or " one who is ardently attached to a cause, object, or pursuit." Then there is my personal favorite "one who tends to become ardently absorbed in an interest." I would call the last one fanatic, bordering on unhealthy. I think I'd rather be an enthusiast as opposed to a fanatic.

CADS RULE DUDES! Alright Alright Alright...
