I'm in Portland! I will update later tonight….but for now:
This morning at the airport I overheard a TSA employee tell another TSA employee that he was "Livin' the dream.."
At the time said TSA employee was pushing a wheel chair containing the small hunched over remnants of an aged woman, furiously chewing her cud and admonishing the man to be careful of her "things"….
She looked like bitterness was her bedfellow.  He was smiling and singing a song. 
"I need to go to the restroom!" she shrieked.

Next stop: Nougat City.
