Caught in the act by a fruit-sniffing Beagle...
|We arrived in Toronto at 8:30 PM last night, which for our bodies was 4:30 AM. Just after we left the plane, The Gambler tossed the 2 apples out of his backpack that we hadn't gotten around to eating. Since I knew that we had eaten the 2 bananas that were in my bag, I didn't give it any further thought.|
As I was standing there somewhat dazed as The Gambler grabbed our baggage from the luggage carousel, I saw a woman walking a beagle through the luggage area. I noticed that the beagle had a little doggie vest on with the initials CBSA. She looked to be doing some type of training, as she put a bag down, and rewarded the dog when he sniffed at it. "I didn't realize that they use beagles to sniff for drugs" I thought. Then the beagle made it's way over to where I was standing, and started to sniff at our backpacks. The woman asked me: "Do you have any food in your bag?". "Not any more, but there was some in there recently", I said. So she unzipped The Gambler's bag and lo and behold there was nothing in the main compartment other than 2 books. So she opened my bag - on top was my knitting bag, which had yarn, and needles, and a water bottle, and underneath was my Clapotis. She dug further, and it turned out that there was a pear at the bottom of my backpack - I had forgotten that I had grabbed it at the breakfast buffet. I was told: "You could face a $400 fine for this", but she decided to let me off as long as I tossed the pear right then and there. Then she and the dog proceeded to bust an elderly couple.
But enough about my inadvertent smuggling. I had packages waiting for me when I got home
My final SP9 package:
Some Somerset coloured sock yarn (which will probably get knit up into Cat's Face Lace Socks)
A Montego Bay scarf (knit out of handpainted yarn)
And assorted goodies of Portland origin.
However, I haven't figured out my SP's knitty identity yet - please let me know who you are!!
I also received a Ravelry Birthday swap package from Tammy:2 different sock yarns,
And more goodies!
Don't forget the lemon cookies! (Even though I am a chocolate fanatic, there's something about lemon cookies that makes my mouth water!)
And there was a surprise package from Janis:
BTW Janis - it totally didn't occur to me that you were asking for my address because you intended to send me something - I can be quite dense sometimes!
