And Gobble Gobble To Us...

First of all...Thanks Giving!
I was reading some news online this morning. It's in the middle of me getting the family packed to go away for Thanksgiving. I have suitcases surrounding me. I'm alone in the quite house, ok sexy Matt is in the background, but I need a little eye and ear candy to get this task done!

Back to my story. So I come across this article. NOt only does the TSA want us to take off our shoes, coats and everything else (not complaining) they want us to
PACK NEATLY AND IN LAYERS!!!!
Holiday airline travelers urged to chuck carry-on clutter

WASHINGTON — Airline passengers, who already are required at airport checkpoints to remove their shoes, take off their coats and carry only small bottles of liquids, now have a new task:
Pack neatly.In anticipation of the most popular holiday for travel in the USA, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) today launches a campaign urging travelers to eliminate clutter in carry-on bags. Pack in layers. Keep items neat.
Messy travelers could spend more time in line if their carry-ons are cluttered because such bags are more likely to be pulled aside and searched by hand, TSA spokeswoman Ellen Howe says.

The added search could add up to three minutes to time in the security line, Howe says.

"Whether or not the (TSA) campaign is effective, the effort is certainly welcome because, with 27 million-plus people scheduled to fly over Thanksgiving, every effort to speed up the security checkpoint will help," says David Castelveter, spokesman for the Air Transport Association, the major airline trade group.

Pack neatly so they can mess it up for you as they search thru it. :)

Have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
