I used to hear horrible stories about how terrible the US customs people are, but I've never, ever had a problem with any of them. It was the Canadian customs people who were the jerks that one time.

It's really just a random gamble every time. I still hate crossing the border though. I just know I'll end up dealing with Officer Hardass again eventually...

Strangely, I've always encountered jerk US guys, and the Canadians are as laid back as you'd expect Canadians to be.

*shrug* maybe it's because of our nationalalities (you're American, right?)

Call it impulsive, call it compulsive, you can call it insane. Just don't call it a night. (Because it's actually a day.)

These are so much more fun than pictures. :)

Nice that you got to enter and exit Canada from two completely different places. I believe I could hum most of the Hoisting of the O song too; I wish New York were still like it was back when Sesame Street filmed that segment.

There was an episode of the George Reeves TV series in which several Daily Planet personnel accidentally traveled back to the Stone Age, Kent among them. When Superman appeared, he BS'ed about following them backwards by speeding.

One unscrupulous man got the cavemen to call him "boss" after he used a butane lighter on a stick and chipped a rock with his gun. Superman usurped that bosshood with his heat vision and a cave wall punch.

I don't remember their motive, but two bad guys tied up Lois and Jimmy and declared that Superman couldn't see thru their lead cave. They didn't count on his super hearing.

The time machine needed silver to work again. A caveman traded silver for the lighter (quite a happy arrangement). Everyone but Kent forgot to change out of their mammoth skins before returning to the present. Kent laughed after Mr. White yelled to passersby, "Haven't you seen a caveman before!?"

Anthrocon flag! Woot! (Love the look on his face in the last panel too!)

I hope you got pictures of it! There's nothing I like more than seeing flags I haven't seen before ...

I tried to get pictures of it, but the wind shifted and it was difficult. I got one or two halfway decent pictures (which I'll upload later).
