Carrie, your "sacrifice" is duly noted. DH predicted that there would be several TR folks who would be willing to "take one for the team". If the dry ice were still in tact, I would take you up on it! Alas, the most expensive zebra domes ever in terms of effort are in the refrigerator.

I'm going to go with the grits are safe and sound. They aren't as conspicuous as the dry ice shipment. They may sit for 2-3 weeks in a customs hold in Canada, but at least they won't go bad. And remember, rest assured if you broke the law, at least the Feds DO have your real name and contact information unlike our Steven, eh?

I've only been to Boma once, and it was for breakfast.

We're trying one new thing on our trip to WDW next month - we've finally booked the Hoop-de-doo Revue. I'll "review" it when I get back.
Yes, sadly DH probably will never, ever be allowed to renew his passport in the future. He has been tagged.

I can't wait to hear your "review" of the revue. You know how Nebo refers to Hoop de Doo? About how you would expect a seven year old to refer to it!

Oh my gosh, were we ever foiled!! It was one road block after another. Poor DH with all the running around Orlando. He's a keeper for sure!!

I'm thinking it might be even better for Nebo to NOT appreciate the zebra domes as much as Pkondz. A little like sea salt in the wound, you know?

Marita, the zebra domes are in the refrigerator and they are yours if you want them. Just PM me if you want to stop by after work tomorrow and get them.

I'm sorry, but I'm thinking that 35+ years anywhere should entitle you to something awesome. A free stay seems so little in the grand scheme of Disney things.

Well, sure. That makes sense. You want enough for the four (four!!!) packs of... I can't say it, I'll start to cry... packs of stuff. Plus you want enough to last. Plus you want enough in case you decide to ship a woolly mammoth too.

Let's check with the authorities, shall we?
http://www.beaware.gc.ca/english/brirape.shtml#a1

The gc in the URL stands for Government of Canada

hmmm.... let's see...

Products allowed into Canada from the United States

Baked goods up to 20 Kg (about 40 Lbs)

So....


Color me upset.

It's not that bad. As long as you can get past the guards constantly apologizing for detaining you.

Do you honestly think that after all you've already done, that I'd dare (even if I could think of something) ask for something else?

Believe me, I can't believe the trouble you went to already for me. And it's very, very, very, very appreciated.

So I get home today and I mention to Kay that maybe today there'll be some grits in the mail.

She was really excited and wanted to get the mail, herself.

So....


Did you know (as far as I know) that the only place you can find grits up in these parts....


Would be at the pkondz household???


Yup! We got 'em today! I'm hoping to cook up a batch on Saturday. I'll keep y'all posted.


didja see that? I got grits... and I said "y'all"

I guess, eventually, they'll all only be around on celluloid. When Alda goes, I think I'm going to go curl up in a ball somewhere and not come out for a while.

Unfortunately, I am off tomorrow. You can always donate them to the Front Desk, I am sure they will be devoured in the break room in no time.

Thanks for the offer though

Do you think this is goods carried on your person? The smackdown came because I was shipping them to you. Believe me, what I wanted to do for a couple of crazy minutes was tell the kids...."Kids the vacation isn't over, we're going to Winnipeg, Canada to deliver some zebra domes.

And of course I'm still going to send you and your family something....I'm thinking about it as I type this and I do have some ideas. You know what happened with "The Little Blue Engine" right?

YES! I would drive the 1,915.2 miles to your house to see your reaction, but they would probably stop me at the border. Even though I'm "half baked", I'm a little bit over the weight limit Don't forget the cheese......

I needed a refresher on that, so I looked it up.

The little blue engine looked up at the hill.
His light was weak, his whistle was shrill. (Sounds like my MIL)
He was tired and small, and the hill was tall,
And his face blushed red as he softly said,
“I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.”

So he started up with a chug and a strain,
And he puffed and pulled with might and main. (also like my MIL... after she's scarfed down her third helping of holopchi)
And slowly he climbed, a foot at a time,
And his engine coughed as he whispered soft,
“I think I can, I think I can, I think I can.”

With a squeak and a creak and a toot and a sigh, (yup. that's her all right)
With an extra hope and an extra try,
He would not stop — now he neared the top —
And strong and proud he cried out loud,
“I think I can, I think I can, I think I can!”

He was almost there, when — CRASH! SMASH! BASH!
He slid down and mashed into engine hash
On the rocks below... which goes to show
If the track is tough and the hill is rough,
THINKING you can just ain’t enough!

Odd, that's not quite how I remember it, but the internet don't lie, people!

So if you really want an idea, apparently, there's a five thousand dollar castle that the Thumpers found.... oh wait... that was in Disneyland.

You really don't have to do anything.... You've done enough!!!!

And I won't forget the cheese.... or the garlic... and I have high hopes for the bacon.

Apparently? Well I guess that's a good choice of words. There is a castle. Go over to our DLR TR and I'll post the pictures there. I need to keep it going. I think this one will keep going for a while.

See my hypothesis on this is that you, as a Canadian citizen can bring things over the border because your American cootie exposure is limited in scope. I can't send it to you because I and everything I touch, am eaten up with American cooties.

Unless of course you think there is a lucrative market in the Great White North for zebra domes. I can abandon my current job and a mule of zebra domes. We can make the name a little more intriguing and just call em ZDs. What do you think, eh?

Yikes! In my haste to get to the MK this morning, I gave you the wrong title of the book. When I saw your reply, I had to post something even if, shocker, I compromised rope drop. Try "The Little Engine that Could", though your additions are hilarious!!

Well, see you don't have anything in your hands. There's nothing yet for Kay to look forward to getting in the mail. But you will, my friend, you will.

I have enacted a Plan B, that while not as perfectly personal for you as the "stuff" it is a bit of WDW. Hopefully it will be enough to let you and your family know I was thinking of you in the World.

And you feel guilty? I feel terrible, because I really did want to get you your zebra domes. I was so excited to think of you receiving them. I even told the CM at The Mara where the ZDs were going.

And to be on the safe side, I'm going to mail what I do have for you on Monday morning, from my home post office. One of the employees there is best friends with my mom. I want this to get to you so I'm taking no chances. I will more than likely send it/them 2nd day, so it will be interesting to see when you get it/them.

Judging from that smiley, odds are 2-1. I'm willing to bet you already have a meet planned up with them.

hmmmmm.... not sure. Only 17 Canadians have ever been to WDW, so I don't know.

But I'll buy the whole zebra dome mule. So you'll still come out ahead.

See in Canada, you don't have to know somebody to have stuff get lost in the mail.

I'm going with Bunny's odds of about 2-1. But just for variety, I'll say 3-1.

OK, so I am slow, I admit it.

But I seem to remember from many, many years ago that when shipping things to or from Germany, you would just indicate "clothes" on the declaration. Foiled them every time.

Probably too late now....

Sorry for your loss, Ponzi!

DH and I did think about what we would declare and "candy" or "chocolate" would have been what we would have said, but it was the dry ice that was "the fly in the ointment" so to speak. The post office FREAKED OUT over the dry ice and UPS could ship it with dry ice, but it could only be a certain weight. The maximum poundage of dry ice per UPS is somewhere between 2-3 pounds, DH purchased 11 pounds and had the box already sealed. DH had to open up the box so the UPS CSR could describe the contents and amount of ice and it was the central UPS shipping center in the southeast that gave it a "no go".

Trust me, it's starting to really warm up here in the south. Dry ice was a must do.

I like Marita's idea about the clothes declaration. "Sir, why is the box cold? Well the shipment is going to Canada! It's so cold there they only have fake flowers!"
