Hi Cal,

Since you've now entered the conversation, I can change the original sentence to mild animals.


Best Regards,

Took a while to see this - but actually Terry, there was a rather awkward incident a few years back while crossing on a trip to visit Bud - not only did they want to see our "business papers", but they ended up phoning him directly to confirm our appointment

For some reason the gentleman and lady at the checkpoint didn't like my attitude - I guess they thought I was a bit cavalier . As you're aware, I don't take everything seriously, clearly a big mistake here - and of course it's their training to be suspicious at all times. Must make it hard to throw them a surprise birthday party?

"you know, we don't need you to visit our country"

I kid you not

Geek can tell you about it

Reminds me of my bike ride over to Port Angeles many years ago. I decided to go by myself, which was a big mistake! They took a distinct dislike to me for some reason.

Jeff,

It was probably the fact that you were riding a bicycle while wearing a long raincoat and a Hockey Mask in the middle of the Summer.
I'd be just a bit suspicious myself.

If you, or Chris think that it was somehow because you knew me, that's not going to fly.

Hmmmmmm...Come to think of it, a couple of years ago, when I gave a ride back to Panomaniac and Tea-head, they believed the Customs Guys were going to detain all of us as well. What a bunch of jumpy people.

Best Regards,
Terry "Honorable" Olson

On the contrary, I was wearing my finest "budgie smuggling" spandex shorts and matching jersey.

I see, then what the Authorities were actually considering charging you with was "Suspicion of Flagrant International Exhibitionism."


Best Regards,
Terry

They were, but the hand of fate was on my side, allowing me to "strut my stuff" in their fair city.

Jeff,
Is that what you're planning on wearing to the Van Island DIY Fest this Summer? Not that anyone there would probably notice. But just the same, I'll bring my camera as I continue my important Phrenological Research of the "Denizens of DIY".

Are these events open to n00bs?

I'd be happy to bring my tang Band DCRs if there is any interest.
