Next stop Halifax!
Will, do you want me to go down and make sure Elf is OK. Maybe get him out of the crate for a little run around the docks! It's probably a might stuffy in that crate.


I want to hear that conversation.
Captain, "You wanna do what?"
JDBrian, :" I want to let an Elf out of your hold so he can run around the dock. I brought him some fresh motor oil and a pine tree air freshener."
Captain - backing away slowly, "Sure man, OK. You wait right here and I will get the necessary paperwork."
Captain running to call mental health people.

MBWW, :bigrofl: HaHaHaHaHa! Great mental image, Brian; you need to be very specific.

That conversation would undoubtedly be even stranger if it ran thru google translate

Well, if he is with the Keebler elves, at least we know he is eating! I wouldn't want him to get here and be starved!

And to think I thought it was something getting a Bush Hog tractor from Canada to Ky. (it's still in transit) But Will has to go & literally "ship" one from across the big pond! I'll still think it's something when my Hog arrives though! :orangecool:
Will, I wish I could be there when you open that crate! :thumbs:


Dan
The only reason I'm having it shipped across the pond, is because I couldn't find one over here.

And, don't discount your acquisition of that Bush Hog, coming from Canada.
It is a big deal too. You're lucky, we're letting it leave. :smilewink: :smilewink:
Jokes aside, yes, I can believe your anticipation. How many sleeps, before you get your new treasure?

If you want to be there, to crack open the crate, that'd be great. Looks like Aug 9th is the unwrapping day.

Wow it's really moving across the Atlantic, 1/2 way there.
Will when you get her home that's going to be a day to remember.

I don't know the time, Brian, but Aug 3rd is the scheduled date. But that seems late, considering it's
progress. We'll have to see tomorrow, or Wed.

Is the port in Haifax, on the north, or south shore?

It may take a couple of days to unload, depending how big the port is and what dock they use. And then there is probably customs inspecting the load.

Elf will only be visiting Halifax. It will be unloaded in Montreal, and
trucked to a Toronto warehouse.
