Less annoying than usual.

Apparently one of their security lines here at the E gates at DFW is still a metal detector. Their x-ray machine is more irritating than usual, so since I wasn’t going to get to have any fun with getting patted down I tried to irritate the lady managing the x-ray line.

She clearly already hated her job, everyone around her, and life in general, so there was really no further work to be done in trying to discourage her from coming to work. Boring.

I always feel pretty good in the airport when I realize how little we’re actually carrying. It feels like a lot when tossing it into the rental car, but when you see how much everyone at the airport has one feels quite tidy by comparison!

4:30 am in the airport rental car garage, with a good stiff breeze blowing, and Bev says “ah, the first hint of chilly all trip”. For reference I thought it was pleasantly warm, edging on warm enough that I wouldn’t want to do too much work outdoors.

It’s gonna be a hot summer down here. But for now, off to Seattle! I’ll miss our little 2019 Jetta rental car.

This will inevitably end badly…


Imagine a Sears, a Best Buy, and an Ikea got together and adopted the baby of two Boeing 747 assembly plants.

Welcome to Nebraska Furniture Mart.

Bevin is so excited by EVERYTHING. She may have a stroke.

Obligatory airplane picture, again!

It’s basically the same as last week’s picture, except we’re one row further back, and Bev’s wearing a different shirt.

To be fair, I didn’t check the tail number, might be a different plane. But this flight just goes back and forth, so maybe not.

Going to be another whirlwind week of adventure! For now though, either audio book and game on tablet, or listening to music and reading, how to decide?

(Bev says I should’ve brought my knitting project so I wasn’t faced with such decisions. Like I need more stuff to carry.)

On the plane and headed back home.


Good thing we checked in exactly on the 24 Hour early mark, 5 unlucky customers are getting booted to another flight as ASA 655 here is “oversold”. (weasel words if there ever were any!)

Homeward we go, a week back in PDX, then a week here, then two weeks back home, and then this becomes home!

Texas… Waffle?

I’ve heard of Texas Toast, but this is a new development.

But wait, there’s more!

Bevin, as usual, is indecisive about her toppings.

Dangit, why’d we have to be in the syrup swamp? I could stand to adventure across the great Nutella plains and strawberry mountains.

Pretty sure there’s a movie idea in here.
