ON THE BACK BURNER

August 27

I went to Goodwill to buy a large suitcase. I decided to go mainstream and take the kind of suitcase that I see other people passing for carry on sized luggage. We always travel with the minimum . I remember once going through security going to Our favorite Playa del Carmen. We only had back packs. When I was questioned about checked luggage ,I said that we had everything we needed in the back packs. Swim suit and books.The suitcase I bought is full of zippers, and inside shoe bags and cool compartments. I always look for money or some treasure when I buy repurposed items. This suitcase told a little about the previous owner. I found the airline pass.(She should be more careful. I know her name,now). Also about 15 tags from Target, TJMaxx,Sears,and Macy's. She must have bought all new clothes for the trip and didn't snip off the tags before packing them. I hope that she had a good time. The suitcase isn't worn, so maybe she only used it once. I hope to use it a lot. I also hope to fill it with a lot of new clothes. I want to give this suitcase a history and then I can pass it on to the next traveler and let them make a story out of it.
