Across the Border

We crossed the bridge at Laredo this morning at 6:30 AM. At the immigration check point we were stopped. For the last three or four years when we have gone through immigration the guys never got up from their chairs and just looked and waved us on. This morning the immigration people were standing in the lanes and asked our nationality and we showed them our FM-3 and FM-2. They had flashlights and they actually checked....not just to see that we had one but they also checked renewal dates. Our papers were in order and they handed the them back and waved us on our way. We got a green light and we headed South into Mexico.

The service stations that have nice food centers were packed. At this one we had to wait in line for a pump so we could gas up. Still lots of cars, going North and going South, loaded with people and with suitcases and toys tied down on top.

No problems. We're home.

Hi Billie! Welcome home and belated happy anniversary. Are you there to stay for awhile? We're coming in on the 24th. Hopefully we can meet if you'll be around. Deb
