X-RAY AIRPORT CONTROL

In case you don't know an X-ray machine lets take pictures of the bones inside your body. X-rays are a special kind of light which go through all of your body except your bones and other hard parts of your body, so the bones show up as white on the X-ray and the muscle in between shows black.

The only X-ray I had recently was yesterday when I went through 


this



My x-ray showed that I was not carrying a gun or bomb sewed on my bones



I was very cooperative



In the last minute I wasn't sure about the gifts I carried along

When I was through the X-ray control I got  on my plane to Marseille in the South of France, where my friend Claudie picked me up for a holiday week in her home.



And here I am from today on !

I was going to be cheeky when I saw your first skeleton Xray that people could use the cats to hide the guns, then I saw the second photo. So very funny.

Have a wonderful time in the South, I think your weather will be better than ours up here in cold & wet Normandy!

I usually get picked out and have to be checked again (and again and again). Never anything wrong, but still, it can be quite annoying!

Well, I must say your bones look very straight and healthy.
And what is the drink/food with the green feather? It looks very exotic.

Charmong post, like you I get stopped every time through the airports, as I have two metal knees and a metal hip, so all the alarms go off and I have to go into a cubicle to have a gun roving all over my body... it happens every time, but better to be safe than sorry... You are lucky to be in the South of France, my brother lives an hour from Nice. His holiday home has now become his full time place after retirement from the European Parliament. When they lived in Brussels we loved visiting them there.. I liked Belgium very much and Brussels a lot too.. looking forward to seeing more from you.. best wishes J
