Travel Story - A Bolt, A Bolt, My Kingdom for a Bolt

Location: On a plane at DFW airport in Dallas

We were delayed a bit for an unspecified mechanical problem.  Later it was announced that one of the seats was broken, and that it needed a bolt and washer.  A maintenance crew was dispatched to get the parts and bring them back to the plane.

Apparently it was a very specialized bolt and washer.  Here is the crew getting the bolt and washer out of inventory.

That's right - they got an entire seat assembly out of storage and took the bolt and washer from it.  Gotta hand it to them for a "git 'er done" attitude.

 Best comment - Margaret Hinrichs: Where there is a will, there is a way.

Travel Humor - I knew smoking was bad, but should we jail smokers?

Location: Greyhound station, seen while walking to my hotel in downtown Dallas

I have seen plenty of designated smoking areas, but this one takes the cake.  Don't want those smokers to escape!
