Escape from Alcatraz

Spent 2 looong days driving to Chilliwackasack from SF Bay, held up by a seething Border guard that was unhappy my dogís rabies vaccination tag was left at home, dog and I were shameless violators of the new leash laws inside the Escape showroom-Verboten signs now on front door, coffee table, inside the trailers and even the bathrooms. Vigilant owners daughter almost got bit on the ankles by a highly trained Attack Poodle as a result, although she didnít realize the extreme danger she was in at the moment. Got into a heated parking lot argument with another Escape owner about Tarrifs and Trump (lím a Deplorable). Oh yes, I also put in an order for a 21 footer, with all the cool doo-dads.
Due in March. Need a name for it, and a truck.

For a name, how about "Entitled".

Hi: BilltheGIL... I still carry the scars to my wrist from an "Attack poodle". He bit through my S/S watch strap too.
Name suggestion "Escape Dog".
Hope you get delivery before any tear offs affect ETI's business. Alf

Best get to Walmart and stock up on cheap Chinese-made products.

Actually we were otherwise well behaved, and drove off on good terms with all. Linda the sales lady knew her product well. Necktie party is officially postponed!

Did you have to board the dog or did it sneak through?

No complaints with the strong US dollar, made buying an Escape a decision that was 26% easier for us Gringos.
China is next on our Presidents Tariff hit list. Prices for the trailer plastics at Wally World might rise.

Boarder Guard let us through. Californians are not always the most loved people in general. We have a well deserved reputation, with lots of loonies and outright crazies here in SF. I was on my best behavior or else I wasn’t getting in.
