Well, their bread sticks ARE divine! I'd probably cross over just for those!

this happened to a young female friend of mine (like 22 years old), guess the guards have to be in a good mood

Someone recently got it to the US with a picture of his passport that was on his iPad. He forgot his pasport but had it scanned in to the iPad (it was in the Toronto Star). I found that hard to believe so getting in with no passport is really something.

Many years ago they separated my mom from my 84 year old grandmother (who was from Ireland and had angina) and gave her th once over, grilling her etc. My mom was so angry that they would stress out someone who is so old and obviously no threat. I guess it all depends on who you get and you lucked our lucknow.

Well, we like the Olive Garden and we were sad when they closed all their Canadian stores years ago. About 80% of the cars in the parking lot were Canadian so there must be a lot that feel the same. We went shopping later at the factory outlet mall and about half the cars were Canadian plated.

well that goes without saying, that whole area relies on Canadian customers..but DON'T tell the border guards at the US border that (my girl made that mistake, he was so angry he almost didnt let us pass)

It's my dearest darling's birthday to day. I bought her a nice charm for her bracelet and let her have a snooze this afternoon while I minded her daycare kiddies.
