New Member says Howdy from Houston, TX

I have to say, thank heaven for this forum. So, about me:

About to turn 40, Texas Aggie, married 13 years now (man how the time flies), working on getting my CPA, wife just got done with law school. One adopted son (11) and a foster daughter we're hoping to adopt (7 months, and a long long story). For rest and relaxation I run, gearing up for the winter marathon season and hoping to qualify for Boston this year. Also good with carpentry and turning wrenches. Generally I don't post much unless I have something worthwhile to say (unless you also know me from styleforum in which case disregard that prior sentence).

Why I'm here: the Mrs. wanted a wagon, something durable, used but in good shape, with third-row seating. We found a BMW and a Benz, and I remember from when my dad drove a 300D for years that Benz was the only choice for those who turn their own wenches, so we went with a 99 E320 wagon. It needs a fair amount of TLC and this forum has been invaluable in helping me. Again, thanks.
