Live Your Mission!
At the airport.
It’s a ghost town in here.
Waiting for maintenance to repair an “issue.” I am for that!
The place is quiet. 27 of us.
The 28th & 29th are not quiet.
Mom and child.
Child may have a hearing disability for mom is a loud talker.

Way to go mom! Keep shouting it!!!!!!
