No harm intended, yet

I finally got all the corrected correct paper work done, signed, and notarized for both of us in the D.  What a hassle.  Then to the courthouse to file the last of the papers.  I'm not fond of going to the courthouse, though they are very nice in the family law division, as I set off the metal detectors every time.  Time before last it was because of the hemostats in my purse and the staples in my Dansko's.  This time it was my Swiss Army knife and the Dansko's again.  Just ask'n, don't other grannys pack hemostats and Swiss Army knives, along with butterfly bandages, etc in their purses?

  1. Maybe not the Swiss army knives.

  2. Nice of you to carry the band aids. When you take someone apart with your Swiss Army knife, you can put them all back together again!

    I just put my Amoeba on an airplane. First I confiscated all of the things he carries in his pockets and secured them inside his shaving kit inside his checked luggage -- but I won't be on the other end when he packs to come home ....

  3. This granny has a Swiss Army knife, with scissors, sanitary wipes, and Hello Kitty bandaids. Shoulda seen what was in my big bag when my sons were toddlers.

    Glad you got your paperwork done, me too, last month. It's one thing at a time.

  4. Marci: But, but the Swiss Army knife is vital. It has a corkscrew.

    Quilly: If you only knew...how handy that thing is(see above).
    So what do you think is going to be staying in the bin at the airport when he comes home?

  5. Celia: LOL thanks for being on the pack'n granny team.
    I will be happy when the D is all finished, and I can get on with living life.

  6. I always carry a metal tape measure - does that count?

  7. Hemostats and Swiss army knives, most intriguing. The stuff in my own bag is much more prosaic, nothing to set off any airport alarms. But it's scary how security measures generally keep increasing and how we stoically tolerate all the fuss and bother.

  8. I long ago gave up carrying all kind of stuff in my bag...it just got to heavy a burden. I do have a package of dark chocolate covered almonds, though.

  9. Yikes, armed and dangerous. Actually, I carry pretty much the same things though mostly in my glove compartment. My back was starting to go when I tried to carry it all in my purse.
    Know you will be glad when the D wringer is over.

  10. Nelly: Of course a tape measure counts (I have a small one in my bag as well). Hope your feeling better!
    Nick: It is depressing the number of measures in play to safe guard us from ourselves.
    Tabor: Chocolates yum! It gets too hot here to pack them, and they get all smeary while eating at 75MPH...
    Patti: I thought I just listed to one side due to age, maybe it's my bag...

  11. I think my body will make more noise than my bag the next time I travel. I am told my new hip will ring bells!

    Enjoy the new freedom!

  12. I'm trying to decide -- is it safer to be with you or more dangerous? I know it would be more fun!

  13. Grannymar: I bet you would make a terrific belly dancer with that new hip. Freedom is a good thing.

    Jerry: It is fun, a little dangerous, a little safe, but that's life!

  16. Swiss Army Knives are too handy not to carry! Our courthouse tells you to leave your firearms at the door - in WV it's *assumed* you're carrying one LOL

    Sorry I'm so late to this post -- I'm looking for my own walk through those doors you know, but it's still not for a while yet. *sigh*

  17. I was alarmed to discover (google!) that in addition to your swiss army knife that the 'hemostat' you were carrying is actually "a vital surgical tool used in almost any surgical procedure!" Jeez Louise...has someone upset you! Other than that you seem to be in fine form...great to see ya back again Brighid...you were missing for a while! :)

  18. I do carry band-aids for the grandkids but have not a clue what a Dansko is. I used to carry a pocket knife...but all the air travel has put that away.
