Well, welcome back. Sounds like you had a wonderful time.
Sorry about the bird though. Are you planning to replace her?
I remember the airport stories you told. See, sometimes you sneak through. But you're right, next time could be a doozie.
Get settled back in and we'll read more about it later, OK?


...not only did we get searched the locks on our cases were cut off as well :^(...glad you is back - sounds like fun was had but I know what you mean about "getting-home-happiness"...bit of a bummer to have to go straight out to work - let's hope it is an easy shift :^)...


Welcome back! It's nice to hear that you had a good trip. It's cool that the airports were good to you this time. For some reason they check DH's shoes each time we fly. He must look suspicious to them. *G*


Billy - I remembered reading about your locks being cut, and was surprised that apparently even our luggage escaped the notice of airport security.

Actually, I think they just flubbed it. When we checked our luggage in, the woman ahead of us was called back to remover her locks. Then, when I was going through the metal detectors, the woman ahead of me (notice how they are all women) was pulled out of line so that they could search her carry ons.

Coincedence? I think not.

The listing that I obtained from the FAA's advisory site (before I knew that we were taking a company jet to Montreal) specifically advised people that if they chose to lock their luggage, the lock might be broken by inspectors when the bags were x-rayed. They advised not locking them (which leaves one in a quandary about what to do with valuable things that cannot go through the screening process because they are metal, pointy objects, etc.) Glad they didn't pick on you. See if you can't get your company to buy an airplane (and let you have personal use of it, of course) so that you can escape some of the hassles. LOL
