    Sorry Lynnifer ... I wasn't thinking ... which can be more often these days ... perhaps we shall meet too!

    Usually cross at Port Hurion to avoid the border check long line ups ... let's see where planning takes us this weekend

    May I ask for forgiveness?

    No problem. lol We used to cross over to Marine City (I think it was called?) when I was a youngster. I've been across the Windsor/Detroit border in literal years! Like one time in eight years to hit Mexican Town.
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    Can you guys (Canadians), mail so much back home a day as gifts without paying customs? If you can maybe send some stuff directly to your son's new residence?
    Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes courage is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying, "I will try again tomorrow."

    Thanks Sue ... I will go to the Canada Customs web site tomorrow and do some reading. Great idea!

    You can't bring in any cologne/perfum more than 15 or 25ml ... no more brand purses ... they've really been cracking down at Customs! I lost about $200 via Ebay and no recourse to get my money back.

    I want a Marni balloon bag! lol ...
