She and Anne could share a federal jail cell. We came out of Hawaii, headed
for US mainland once with seeds and starts "lifted" in Hawaii, Hong Kong,
Singapore, and Bangkok. I didn't find out until we got to my daughters
home, we could have been stood up against a wall and had a flame thrower
applied to us. I'm surprised a whole pack of USDA beagles didn't chase us
throught the airport baying "treed."
