is going to try to pull on me this time. I've got my wine in my checked baggage this time so they can't be snaking that; let's hope it doesn't break all over my clothes

My niece tried to bail on driving me to the airport...it's only a hundred miles. But I got another ride; she's working at two jobs. If all else failed I'm quite sure that I could have inspired a couple of dizzy hens at the Moose Lodge to give me a ride to town

wtf I've got the change planes three times. Thank Heaven I've got a rather long layover at Sea-Tac.

Last time I flew they swiped some Philosophy chocolate lip gloss which I had plans for.

Three flights to POW, that is a lot of jumping for a short hop!

Both my kids work for TSA as supervisors, you think you get it on the short end, you should hear their stories of the "Stupid passengers". Guys trying to board with huge knives, bullets in their pockets from hunts two years ago, and one guy was working his mine and hopped a flight to Seattle (tried) after playing with explosives on his mine all day and didn't cleanup or shower before the flight. He set off every explosive alarm there was in both baggage and walk though. I don't think he had a good day...

But you are right, use to be you could wait at the gate for incoming and go with them til they left. Being at the airport was fun years ago, but now it is like getting screened for a mugging or something worse.

Have a good flight!

LOL...last time I tried that one, Granny, I ended up missing my connecting flight

Yeah, Starlite, I gotta take a puddle jumper over to the island. I was going to spend the night in Ketchikan and take the ferry the next day but what the hell.


Thanks for the good wishes, everyone.

I'm going to try sneaking some pancake mix, candy, cheescake mix, and frozen halibut to Sweden. Wish me luck. I'll be in the Sea-Tac tomorrow myself. You could buy me a beer Met!
