Default SOWP SUCCESS crossing US border!Yeah!!

I crossed the US border today at Sumas, had a fun day out sightseeing in the Mt Baker foothills, round the lake, through Geneva and then to Bellingham on a gorgeous, sunny day and got my Spousal Open Work Permit with no issue whatsoever.

I was quite nervous about the US Immigration but they were LOVELY!

EFFICIENT,but FUNNY and SMILEY.
While they were fingerprinting my OH, I spoke to one of them about seeing my first Opossum and being really thrilled, even though it was dead on the road near my house.

The border guard said to me,
"They are so stupid!
"Have you heard the one about, "Why did the chicken cross the road?"
To show the Opossum that it could be done!"

Coming back in, I got smiles and everything was brilliant and now I have a lovely TWP valid until late 2013 and next week I can get a job!
