May of Mendocino, CA

We traveled to Mendocino, California, to attend a brother’s wedding. We had a wonderful time meeting new people, getting up to date with family and “old” friends, and touring the countryside.

Once again, Heather celebrated her birthday away from home. Happy birthday, Heather!

By the way, driving from Mendocino to Portland is a long day’s drive…

Quote of the Day — Fred, the TSA Employee

If you have any questions about what’s allowed and what’s not, I can tell you. I can even tell you why the rules exist. You can raise your hand or yell, ‘Hey, Fred!’

Fred, the TSA Employee at PDX

Normally, the security lines at PDX are brutal. They’re not particularly long; the pain is caused by TSA agents yelling at the waiting travelers to get their tickets out of their jackets and get their IDs out.

Today was different. Another TSA agent not assigned to check IDs was roaming through the lines, offering assistance on the process and a little humor, referring to the X-ray and metal detector area as “stressville” and his domain as “the relaxing area.”

It was a nice change.
