Blind girl with Olympic physique has a sweet miniature collie who loves her and looks after her. Collie's intelligence and compassion is palpable: she's gentle, patient, entirely loving. Blind girl bends forward for a sweet kiss before boarding. They're lovely.

I missed most of this trip, hacking up lungs in my hotel room. Three day cold at exactly the wrong moment. Now just being normal feels sooooo good.

Up since 2am CA time. Lining up to board. Talk to ya later.
