bbelle FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories (101* d) RE: FSGW Getaway 2000 Memories 24 Oct 00

Hi y'll ... I'm not going to post long tonight. I just arrived home ... 3 hours late because they was a bomb on my plane leaving BWI. After sitting on tarmac for a while, the captain comes on a says they have a "profiled passenger" who checked luggage but did not board and "they" would be bringing in bomb squad and dogs to search through luggage and cabin. I was the first one on the plane and noticed a man standing in the very back looking very casually official and very much like a G-man. I thought it a little strange and watched him ... he was looking at everyone's face who boarded. So, they took all the luggage out on the tarmac and the dogs sniffed luggage until they found the bag, which they promptly put into some kind of "bomb" cart. Then they brought a dog onto the plane to sniff, but they didn't find anything else.

No ... they didn't let us move off that plane. I kept my composure and didn't panic, although I was dying a thousand deaths inside. I was very glad to reach Atlanta and then Jacksonville and home, here in Tallahassee.

I have wonderful memories and anecdotes and I want to share them but I know you'll understand if I wait a couple of days to calm down a bit.
