A week from today I fly to Minnesota to take care of this little cutie who apparently is afraid he will lose his place:
Since I am a tightwad, I will not be checking any luggage. It costs $15 for one bag - each way. That is $30 people! And that can be much better spent on fabric or chocolate, I mean... groceries. Yeah.
So I did a trial run yesterday - packing my carry-on with everything I would need for a week. Hmmm. That's not gonna work. Tried again. And again. I think I've got it now. When you pack for Minnesota in late fall - you need to take some substantial clothing. No tank tops and shorts. Thankfully Suzi is about the same size as I am.
Trying to limit my baggage reminded me of a blog I read a few years ago. This gal and I are worlds apart life-style-wise, but I thought her concept of wearing the same dress everyday for a year was interesting.
As a society we have way too much stuff. And I'm as guilty as anyone. So instead of packing for every possible eventuality - I'm keepin' it simple. Joshy won't care.
How 'bout you? How do you pack for a trip? Take everything but the kitchen sink - or keep it simple?
We watched a special honoring Bill Cosby on PBS last night. What a funny man. They replayed some of his old comedy bits and it was a hoot to see Jack Benny fall off his chair laughing as Cosby ramped it up on the Dick Cavett show. Well.
I was hoping they would play his bit in which he is convinced his mother is trying to kill him by feeding him Cream of Wheat with lumps in it. Funny, funny stuff. What is your favorite Cosby routine?
