soy and gelatin

Oh - where are the pictures from the workshop? Guess they didn't come out. Well, there's always tomorrow. In the meantime, here I am recuperating (with most members of the class -- off camera) after a day that ended much better than it started. Feet up and a glass of good wine does wonders. UPS apparently thought I was smuggling drugs because they re-routed my package to the east coast, opened it, trashed everything inside, stole my syringes, two tjaps wrapped in bubble wrap(left the bubble wrap) and broke two legs off of my favorite $3 garage sale frying pan that is irreplaceable. They opened the plastic bags with the dye jars and thiox and took them out, dumped wax all over the place, and had probably tasted the soda ash and gelatin to see what they were. I am going to report them to -uh - to whom?? The FBI? The ICC? the DEA? I was going to post more but my Internet connection is iffy, so if I can get this to post it will be a miracle. More demain.

That is a nightmare! It's a wonder that you can even sit let alone smile. Girl, you're made of STRONG stuff!

Oh God, I'm glad it wasn't me. I'd be a basket case! Can't wait to see photos of the workshop.

Maybe you should give this case to your attorney. This should not be tolerated. You couldn't have taken these things into the plane, I guess; so what safe way of transport is left?
My first comment was too angry to remain posted.

At the very least they should be forced to compensate you for what's lost...that's just ridiculous! Sometimes security goes WAY too far over the top. I had to argue with a guard a the court house when I was on jury duty and had taken some hand piecing to work on...with an 11 between needle and a thread cutter. I finally got through when, showing my "weapons" I asked "what am I gonna do, yell 'release him, or I'll hem your pants!!!' "

Well, at least you look relaxed and happy!
