(There's a story here that involves the TSA and a beautiful toy xylophone we bought for our 5-year-old at Orange while we visited AC earlier this month.... Once I'm done wrestling the TSA and the story becomes funny, I'll tell you about it !)
HC - I am now very curious about your TSA experience. I am glad that the outcome may now be a happy one.
I purchased a beautiful exotic wood pen back in August at Orange. My neighbor who takes care of my cat was the happy recipient of that pen and he carries it with him at all times. I am looking forward to purchasing a pen for myself when I return later this year.
