The one bad thing about booking a last minute flight is that it appears the airlines then mark you as an automatic extra security check. Both flights we were all pulled aside for special screening. Nothing like taking a toddlers shoes and then leaving seperating him from his mom. True, he could stay with my husband, but he didnt understand why he had to go somewhere else and couldnt have his shoes. The way home wasnt too bad, but the flight down we almost missed. Steve's shoes set off some kind of thing on their sensors with the special wipey things they use. They were pulling out explosive chemical manuals and kept him for half an hour with a whole bunch of people asking him questions about his job, etc. He wears them working in the yard. Who knows what the heck he might have on those things. We got on our flight with like a minute to spare. We bought shoes for the trip back!
