Scattered road notes

Last of the great images.

Airline note:
I prefer Southwest so I guess I won’t make any cracks about safety issues. Or how their problem isn’t all that it’s cracked up to be?

“I was telling the guy, the quick way to figure it is material times three to get the labor charge, and if that isn’t enough, add in the material charge one more time. He told me he’d heard that before.”

Desert Air:
My lovely hosts didn’t think to hook up the gas in the trailer, as it had been on a road trip (work) and the weather wasn’t that cold. Except at night. The trick was an electric blanket, under the bedding. Like sleeping on a hot pad – a little slice of luxury.

    I didn’t see any notes about scattered roads. But perhaps it was the fact you were flying. On an airplane, I mean. On the rare occasion there’s been an electric blanket on the bed, it’s been covered in cats. No room for human. How can 3 cats completely occupy a bed? They have this ability to position themselves (geometers all) to preven the possibility of a 5’2″ body slithering under the covers somewhere. Don’t even get me started on the dog, who snores.
