Fall into great company at our next Dallas meeting, 11 October 2013

Big Tex welcomes in October at the Texas
State Fair.
Beautifully colored falling leaves and bright pumpkins may be the iconic sign of the year's waning in northern realms, but here in the Dallas/Fort Worth area we know it's October when Big Tex starts waving "howdy" and the aroma of fried-things-on-a-stick starts wafting from the State Fairgrounds.

Whether you call it fall or autumn, October is also that time of year when it seems that we are "falling" precipitously toward the end of the year. So, although it's hard to believe,  it will soon be time for our next "second Friday" meeting, 11 October 2013. We'll be meeting as usual at Half Price books in Dallas from 11:30 to 1-ish -- come early to get a good seat, because we seem to attract more members all the time. Click here for details. Remember, we welcome all Catholic writers in the area, so feel free to join us if you need advice, critiques, encouragement, or moral support. Bring news or writing samples to share, if you have 'em.


Those of you in Tarrant County who find a trek into Dallas a major outing -- come join us, and you'll still have plenty of time to go to the State Fair and wave at Big Tex in the afternoon. In fact, you can pick up the DART train from one of the nearby Red/Orange Line stations (Park Lane and Lovers Lane are nearest) and avoid having to park at Fair Park. If that's not enough to entice you into the heart of Dallas, remember that you can also come to our fourth Tuesday evening meetings at the University of Dallas.
