On the polar opposite side of the question, I did query the TSA agents,,,,as in Glendora California hosts "The Donut Man" on Old Route 66, and his family has made FABULOUS Fresh Packed to the Hilt - Strawberry Donuts...needless to say, the transplanted Californias now in Texas....BEG for those during the season. TSA said, "sure" and be sure to get some for us as well!!!
Boo hiss United! Flight delayed, left our luggage at the stopover! Got in at 1 am instead of 11:30. After luggage debacle, got to hotel at 3 am. Snowing, and my coat didn't get there until late afternoon of next day.
Also, they apparently allow scissors shorter than 4 in now (or somewhere thereabouts). I checked my travel sewing kit for my last comp just to be safe (in addition to the ole shoe brush) and it's good to know I won't have to check either next time!
