Crisis Averted!

The threat level can go back to ...... orange?  blue?  chartreuse?  Do we still do that?  I don't know.

On my recent trip to Austin, the ever-diligent TSA agents at the Atlanta airport found my Swiss Army Knife---AGAIN---and confiscated it.  We are all safer now.

I always carry one (except for the few days after the TSA confiscates it).  Who knows when I will need a toothpick, tweezers, a knife blade, a nail file or, most importantly, a corkscrew?  Because I always carry one, I never remember that I am carrying it.

But have no fear, travelling public, the TSA is here to save us all from whatever evil deed I might have in mind using my Swiss Army Knife.  Knitting needles? Those I can carry.  And really, they look more potentially dangerous to me than the knife.

But shhhh.....don't tell the TSA folks.

Well, thank goodness! I once had a small tool taken away from me with the admonishment that I would be able to take the plane apart with it ??? Of course there was no explanation of how I would get this small tool out of the plastic packaging it was encased in to preform this dasterdly deed--I would have to have scissors for that!!

They took my daughters plastic safety sissors when she was 8. They barely cut paper...
