    While at Celina I heard a suggestion for a possible future convention location.
    I
    hear LBJ enjoyed entertaining dignitaries and heads of state in his Amphicar at
    his
    Texas hill country ranch. I believe his car is still on display there. I'm
    sure
    he would have enjoyed having a few dozen Amphis on his lake at the same time.
    Not
    so sure his Secret Service staff would have been as amused. Perhaps Al knows
    something about this, being from Texas and all. Anyone taken the tour? What's
    to
    do there? Would they welcome a big group for the day? Any other activities
    nearby, hotels, etc? Hey Al, being so close to home you could stay for a week,
    or
    until the Secret Service throws you out.
