    Hopefully I can get tickets for the arrival ceremony ... the
    state dinner is completely closed and has been for awhile. As soon
    as I know, I will contact you.

    From Tareq Salahi to Michele Jones
    In preparations for tomorrow, do you know what time we would
    need to be there, and which entrance we should go through?

    From Michele Jones to Tareq Salahi
    I am still hoping that I can get tickets for the arrival
    ceremony tomorrow. They do have your information in the event that
    extra tickets become available and will notify me immediately. I
    still haven't given up, but it doesn't seem likely.

    By the way _ I know for a fact that these persons are unable to
    attend the state dinner and the reception portion:
    1.) Sen. Harry Reid and his wife (they have gone home early for
    Thanksgiving).
    2.) Kuma Gupta and husband (unable to travel to D.C. tomorrow)
    3.) Bob Stevens and his wife (top brass from Lockheed Martin)

    From Michele Jones to Tareq Salahi
    The arrival ceremony (was scheduled to be outdoors) was canceled
    due to inclement weather. They are having a very small one inside
    the WH, very limited space. I am still working on tickets for
    tonight's dinner. I will call or e-mail as soon as I get word one
    way or another.

    Hi Michele,
    You are an angel!
    My cell phone battery died early this evening while we were in
    D.C. from our country home, so I just got your message now after
    driving back out. But obviously it worked out at the end.... We
    ended up going to the gate to check in at 6:30 p.m. to just check,
    in case it got approved, since we didn't know, and our name was
    indeed on the list! We are very grateful, and God bless you.
    We just got home, and we had a very wonderful evening as you can
    imagine!
    Look forward to seeing you very soon. Say when for dinner - we
    can't wait to see you and catch up and share memories of true
    lifetime.

    Tareq,
    You are most welcome! I here the smile in your e-mail and am
    delighted that you and Michaele had a wonderful time. :-)
    Have an extraordinary Thanksgiving and many blessings to you
    both!
    Much love,
    Michele
