It must have been the avocados....

El Paso isn't always the sleepy border town folks seem to think it is, but somedays are pretty damn slow. Case in point, from this morning's Times:

Agents confiscate pot, liquor, avocados
Daniel Borunda; El Paso Times

An attempt to smuggle 3.4 pounds of marijuana, 10 undeclared liquor bottles and 10 avocados with seeds was stopped Saturday night at the Bridge of the Americas, said U.S. Customs and Border Protection officials.

A California resident was arrested for the marijuana, and the owner of the liquor and avocados was fined $390. Both smugglers were in the same Ford pickup.

<sarcasm> I find it reassuring to know that avocado smuggling isn't being ignored amidst all the hubub surrounding the wars on drugs and terrorism. </sarcasm>

  • Meet Dargo....

    Pixel and I missed having a little black cat around so I went to the pound Saturday afternoon and I found this little guy in need of a new home:…

  • RIP Morticia a/k/a Ninja Cat :-(

    My little black cat died tonight. It was a sudden and surprising end to a great little cat. I'm doing ok, but I will definitely miss that…

  • Still alive!

    Yes, it's true, I am still alive. Nothing particularly earth shattering has been going on lately, I've just been busy with work and then coming home…
